High-Ratio Shortening...where to buy? - Page 2

post #16 of 21

Hi, I live in Charlotte, NC and there is a Restaurant Depot here that sells 50lbs for $59 plus tax.  I do not really need that much so will freeze it. I have not purchased it yet because I was told they were going to get it in 1 lb containers but now they say they will not soooo, I will have to get the 50 lbs.

 

Walmart has a brand 'Carlina' that, to me, is better than Crisco because of the diffrend fat content, but I still want the Hi Ratio [Sweetex}

I do not think the Sam's here has it in the bakery section because their icing comes to them already made

I am also in the charlotte area. I only use sweetex to make the icing for my cake dummies. I can let you know the next time i need a box or you can just get some from me. I can split one with you. The only place I get it is restaurant depot also.  :)

Can someone tell me where I can get Alpine or Sweetex in the Indiana, Indianapolis- Greenwood area. I do not have a shop, I do cakes out of my home. Thank you for the help

Hello

I live in San Diego and was curious if anyone knows where I can buy bulk hi-ratio shortening...I currently pay $11.00 for 3 lbs of sweeter.....I use a lot because I am in a class...I thought it would be a lot cheaper to buy it in bulk. I do like the taste a lot better than using Crisco...

I have looked on-line seems to me shipping is a lot....would be great if there was somewhere local to pick it up

 

Thank you in advance

Lisa
