HOLY CATS! I use Alpine Hi-Ratio icing shortening, with mostly butter, and mine is $1.16 a LB, from my wholesaler. $1.50, if I have to get it from a reseller {that must not be named}

I prefer the one pound blocks from Sam's club. Seems to be decent butter for me. And when you only have one wrapper to deal with versus four....what a time saver.

I know this may shock the snot nosed people who are so holier than thou, and wouldn't be caught dead in the store, but I prefer the Great Value brand from Walmart. It has one ingredient: cream. ALL the other butters I have found have the "natural flavoring" that is yellow, and tastes funny. It is $2.25ish a pound. It fluctuates. The Plugra is picked up from the wholesaler has it too. BLEH! no thank you!

I am not proud...as long as it tastes good. I'll have to try it. I'm a 'Land 'o Lakes' gal as I've found that to be more consistent in flavor every time I use it. I've bought other butters before that taste good in one package and not so great in others. Butters have different moisture content and the cheaper brands I suspect have more water. That might affect a recipe--or not--don't know. I use it for my frosting and the one thing I'd be worried about is how sturdy it is. Right now even when the frosting is at room temp and warmer, it holds up my decor pretty darn well. I'll have to try it on a practice cake.

If I am ever on life support, unplug me...

Then plug me back in.  See if that works!

See, for me Great Value is one of the ones that has an off-taste. Maybe my taste buds are weird...

It is just cream at my Walmart, maybe your has a different manufacturer? I know they often use name brands and different companies in different regions. Or maybe they store it in the back freezer, next to the skid of Van de Kamps? icon_lol.gif
