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:

IMG_6723The cute little pumpkin with his cinnamon stick baton on the can led me to expect pumpkin and cinnamon to be listed among the ingredients.


But no, it was just an illusion:

IMG_6724Making 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.

  1. My husband is the worst about a squirt in the mouth every time he opens the fridge door when I buy a can of whipped cream. I guess since he is co-ruler of our kingdom, then maybe I should go buy him some and make his day.
