White Stokes piping gel

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Does anyone here know anything about the company White Stokes?  We've been using their piping gel for probably about 20 years because it is far superior to any other brand.  Recently, our distributors have had a hard time getting it and now they say the factory is closed up and they can no longer get it.  We like this product because it is made with Agar which makes it "break" easily instead of stringing out and getting all gummy.  Does anyone know of any other brand that is either made with Agar or is less stringy than most brands?  The other brands I've tried are just awful, I can't even work with it.

I tried to order it through a party store where I live and they had to reordered two times and still have not received it yet.  wondering why also. :(

I have actually found a piping gel that is pretty close to White Stokes. The company name is Korinek. The label says...Manufactured by Frank Korinek & Company  4828 W 25th Street  Cicero, IL 60804-3489. I have tried Lawrence Foods and Chef Master piping gel and was not satisfied with either one!! The Korinek's is as close to White Stokes as I have found. It is a little more "wet" than White Stokes and a little sweeter, but still tastes good (unlike Lawrence Foods). I use parchment paper to roll my own decorating bags and find that after a couple of days, I can feel the "water" thru the parchment. It is almost as clear as White Stokes and is very smooth...NO LUMPS like Chef master. I get mine thru a company called South Holland Baking Supply in Steger, IL.

If true, this makes me very sad.

 

I really liked their piping gel.

It is true, I am so sorry to say. The distributors that I have bought from for over 30 years told me that it is official that they are out of business. The "tub" that the new stuff I bought has the same label as the White Stokes only it has the new manufacture's name on it...so maybe they bought White Stoke's stock of plastic containers and formulated their own piping get. Like I said, I use piping gel A LOT and this stuff is as close to White Stokes as I have been able to find.

Listen. I am a former employee at White Stokes and the company that took over is going to open with the same recipes. You name it, agar piping gel (which I used to cook) all the colors, caramel and marshmallows which was the company wad known for. As soon as I get the information of when I will start working for the new owners I will let you know. I know for FACT the new location will be located in Franklin Park and the new name company name will be Le Sweets or LA Sweets or something like that.

I am going to pick up some supplies tomorrow from my distributor and I will give them the "head's up" about the piping gel coming back. I can't wait to see if it's the same. I truly miss it!!
