PUMPKIN DAIRY WHIPPED TOPPING

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:

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.

I'd love to hear from you!
