New Crisco

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I just e-mailed Crisco for the third time. I let them know I have found a local place that will order me sweetex. I am tired of fighting with my icing everytime I make it and worrying if it is going to work or not. I let them know this and that I thought the new Crisco was horrible. Please let them know if you are unhappy with their new product.

I've switched to the Walmart brand of shortening lately because of the bad results i've been having with the "no trans fat" Crisco.
Currently I've had no issues with my buttercream using the Walmart brand. I have heard rumors that Wilton is working with Crisco to develop a special shortening just for buttercreams but they've just been rumors.

Hope you have better luck with Crisco.

What / Where did you go to email them? I have been sooo unhappy with Crisco lately I am READY to email and let them know I will no longer use their product. I bought a large tub of it too but I've only been using it for cooking other things now NEVER my icing. Switched to Walmart brand too.

icon_cry.gif Everytime I read one of these Crisco post, I could kick myself. A few weeks ago in my local Walmart there on the shelf 5 large cans of Crisco without the trans fat label that must have been left overs and I only picked up 3 not wanting to be greedy or look crazed at the check-out. How I wish I had gotten all of them. So I am using it for special cakes and reading everything I can on the new Crisco and looking for alternate products.

Vicmic-be sure to check the nutrition labels. I thought I had found some old Crisco because it didn't have the green tag on the label. I happened to glance at the nutrition label and it had 0 transfat. So back on the shelf it went!

But we know what the means if Wilton will have it's name on it! $$$$$$$$$$$$ Like I've said before....too bad Crisco, you left me no choice to make and change and why go back when the walmart brand is cheaper!

Yep, I did the same thing, thinking I found some old Crisco and just check the label....0 transfat. I sure wish I could purchase HiRatio shortening here locally. I use IMBC mostly but I was thinking about using the shortening BC for Hot weather and children's cakes.

I'm concerned that the store brands will soon change to non trans fat versions as well to compete with Crisco...I only wish the store brands came in the sticks...I really dislike measuring but I will to better results.

When you say Wal Mart brand are you meaning the Extra Value or the blue can Bake Rite? I've been using the Bake Rite and have good results thumbs_up.gif , I haven't tried the other though

I have had excellent results with the Piggly Wiggly store brand.

I had no idea that crisco changed. I had a large supply at home and have still been using it. I'm just about out and will need to buy some new. Thanks for the tips...

Just exactly is the problem with the new crisco? What's it doing to kill your icing?
