7 pound bags of powdered sugar from sam's club - Page 2

post #16 of 35
I use the Bakers's and Chef's from Sam's all the time. I have been using it for several years and never had any trouble. I love it because it never has lumps. I always have trouble with Domino's and lumps.

I have used the 7# Baker's & Chef's from Sam's for a long time. I have never had a problem with it. As soon as I get it home I get out my kitchen scales and weigh it out into 4# bags, ready to use when I make frosting. Our local Sam's does not have 50# bags or I'd buy that instead.

I use 7 lb bags of Dominos that I get at my local Sam's....$4.13 a bag. I haven't had any problems with grittiness.

I LOVE shopping at Sam's! Now I can't stand it when I don't buy enough and have to go to the regular grocery store for last minute cake supplies. icon_mad.gif

This is good to know! I'll have to re-up my membership to Sam's and see what other goodies I can find! However, I can buy 2# bags of Dominos at WalMart for $1.20/bag. I think that was why I stopped shopping at Sam's before....seems like I could always find it cheaper elsewhere?

That's a FABULOUS deal! Is that Domino's or that Baker's and Chef's brand? If it's Domino's I'm going to have to check into it at my local Sam's!

It's Bakers & Chefs... I've never had any problems with it, I don't sift it either... it's great!

Yeah, I've tried Bakers & Chefs and didn't like it at all....but I think I'll go by Sam's and check our local prices for Dominos! Thanks for the heads up about the great price though! I'm sure I'll be able to find my sugar there....and hopefully for less!

So, Is Domino's a 10x sugar? I use a store brand by me that's 10x but if i can get it cheaper at Walmart that'd be great.

dominos has 50 pound bags, bakers and chefs even tasted funky to me...it was pretty smooth the day i made it, but for saturday, i'm so busy...i make it friday night...by the time it sat overnight...it had the texture of tile grout.

i took it back last sunday, only Cand H for me from now on.

Wow! Nice prices! Up here in Manitoba, it's around 3.50 for a 2 pound bag, in most stores. icon_sad.gif

Yes, Dominos is 10x. I also thought Bakers & Chefs was SO gritty....couldn't eat it, had to throw it away. Isn't it weird how we can all use the same product and get different results!!!

Thanks, Good to know. That is very weird that we can all use the same product and get different results. I wonder if it has anything to do with what people mix it with. ex: different brands of shortening perhaps?

I also use the PS from Sam's and simply LOVE it, it is so much cheaper to buy it in bulk rather then the 2$ a bag for the Domino's brand I used before.
You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.

I use the Bakers and Chef from Sam's and have never had a problem with it. I buy it all the time. I would prefer to buy their 25 pound bag just because it is cheaper, but I don't have a way of storing it. The 7 pound has the zipper, but I buy the cereal container that has teh blue around the top from Walmart (I think it is a Rubbermaid or something like that) But it is clear with blue rubber around the top. Once I use about the first pound or two from a bag, the rest fits in there WONDERFULLY!!!
