Please don't give up! Something will change because of this, I know it!!!
I don't think we here on CC are the only ones complaining to Crisco.
The New York BAN was only on restaurants and bakeries...not companies products. But I think these companies are trying to comply because they think it is only around the corner that they will have to remove it from their products. This is RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article about crisco:
The following is on Crisco's website under a faq section:Can I use this product in my favorite classic Crisco recipes?
We tested a wide variety of classic Crisco recipesfried chicken, french fries, pie crust, chocolate chip and sugar cookies, scratch white cake and frostingand they all turned out with the same delicious results as our original shortening.
I guess you are right, Diane. It looks like there is no going back. Look at what our society has done to itself. All these ridiculous lawsuits and restaurants being sued by ignorant people have made it to where we are dictated on what we can and cannot have in our supermarkets.
Maybe it's a good thing Crisco changed their formula....otherwise some obese idiot would sue one of us for making them fat.
I think instead of them dictating what we can and can't eat, they should ban television and playstations and such and make people get up and get moving.
Sorry, I am just a little upset now.
Please forgive me for my rant!!!!!!!!! I didn't mean to go off topic.
Back to it....
I have been decreasing the amount of Crisco I use and it seemed to help a little. I have two cakes this weekend so we'll see how they turn out.
You know the summer months are REALLY the only months we are having to worry about. Once it gets cooler, the crisco will be easier to deal with.
I wonder if they could make a special crisco for the summer?? LOL
Hope I didn't upset you with my previous post. I just always try to think on the positive side and am still hopeful that they may change it back.
