  1. Thank you for the ingredient information! I bought this for a gathering this weekend. A small part melted on my way home from Costco, so I decided to try it. I thought the strawberry puree was good. Unfortunately, I thought the “whipped topping” tasted greasy. This won’t be going to the gathering. Surprising for Costco. Obviously, wouldn’t buy this again. You are right – Check your ingredients!

    1. Ugh. yeah…I’m glad you figured out before the event. I bought the sour cream loaf recently, that item has pretty good overall ingredients (on a relative basis) – and it would be great topped with some fresh strawberries and whipped cream – if you’re looking for a healthier alternative that’s still sort-of pre-made you might give that at try. I find the toppings and “buttercream” on the rotating bakery items are always made with junky oil and not butter or classic ingredients…which explains why they are priced so well, but I think you and I (and others) would rather pay a dollar or two more and get the real stuff…
