Welcome to day 25 of Tag Sale Tastes’ Pumpkinpalooza!
Today I tried Kroger Pumpkin Dairy Whipped Topping, which has been beckoning me to try it for a month now:
But no, it was just an illusion:
Making your own whipped cream isn’t difficult, and it’s so good. But geez do my kids’ eyes light up on the rare occasions when they find a can of whipped cream in the refrigerator. And apparently, that was the case with this pumpkin whipped topping, because when I went to sample it, about 3/4ths of the can was gone. My son confessed to sneaking a squirt here and there, and told me that he thought it was great.
So I tried it. And it was great. Sweet, but not overly sweet, and lightly spiced. But what to do with it? It seemed redundant to put it on pumpkin pie, and I was not about to bake one just to post a picture (although I probably will do so for Thanksgiving). I suppose it would be nice on berries or vanilla ice cream, especially with a little caramel sauce. I wound up topping coffee with it, and it was a nice treat.
For a little surprise fun this fall, try a pouf of pumpkin whipped topping on your coffee or favorite dessert.
