Powdered Chocolate Frosting Mix?
My mother, a chocolate frosting fanatic, tells me that there was once a superior alternative to frosting in a tub (aside from making it yourself, of course): a mix to which you added butter and water and then whipped. Can anyone confirm the existence of this product, and let me know if it is still on the market?
Yes. Frosting never used to come premade in tubs. It was very distressing the first time I had to buy a premade tub. Such a waste. The best part was licking the blades clean...
As mentioned, TJs just started carrying chocolate, but I don't like chocolate...
Yep, I'll confirm it. I can't remember when tubs came into play, but as a kid in the 60s and 70s, boxed frosting was the staple (though I thought it was butter and milk, not water). Much better than the tub stuff. But of course not as good as scratch.
I have seen frosting mixes at World Market too.
I wish they never made the tub stuff. I am also a frosting fanatic, and I think if they never made it then my organs would be better off. I try to tell myself that it is SOOOOOO unhealthy and so processed, but I cannot Not eat it.
Please someone say something horrible about the tub stuff that will keep me from eating it ever again. Please. Please. I need to never eat it.
