I love Pastry Pride and thought I'd try Rich's Chocolate Bettercreme.  I was NOT impressed.  Even though it has been in my freezer for a month (unopened), it was still mostly liquid, not frozen hard.  Is this normal?

 

It whipped to a smooth, soft-peak consistency exactly as indicated when I beat it in my KA with a whisk attachment for 9 minutes.

 

My personal opinion is that it tastes awful.  The taste was light years away from my beloved Pastry Pride.  Thank goodness I used it for an "experiment cake" for the family.

I use this at work and we have to buy it by the bucket full (I think it's 3-5lbs)  Personally I hate the taste. It has a weird chocolate taste and a horrible after taste, yet the customers love it for some reason.  I say stick with Pastry Pride if that's what you love.
