Reddi Wip VS. Southern Home

 photo e6d12bf3-2021-4666-acb2-b8ef5158d66c_zpsd70dc869.jpg

Do you ever wonder if there is a real difference between store brand and name brand? I know there are several readers that prefer Southern Home brand for various reasons; but I wondered if it was only due to cost or the taste.

My kids love whipped cream; and normally I make mine from scratch but sometimes I want to push the “easy button”  and  pick up a can of Reddi wip. As I was about to grab the can I  noticed that the Southern Home brand was pleading to be picked because it happen to be 50 cents cheaper. So I decided to put both of them through a taste test.

As my family was settling down at the table for dessert that night, I put out three plates with a squirt of Reddi Wip on one side and Southern Home brand (dairy whipped topping) on the other. I asked each family member to pick the one that was their favorite. Now, my youngest doesn’t count because as excepted, he put both hands into the cream and shoved it into his mouth. LOL
As for my rest of my family my husband and daughter picked the Reddi Wip because they said the Southern Home brand had an “gross” after taste and the Reddi Wip was sweeter. However, my son enjoyed the Southern Home brand over the Reddi Wip; his reasoning…”it was good”.

As for me, like I said before, I am used to making my own creamer and the two ingredients I use is vanilla and powdered sugar.
First I compared the thickness of them (how well each of the creamer held their peeks).
(B) As seen in the picture above, Southern Home brand seemed to hold a little nicer than Reddi Wip; but the real test was coming.
I tasted both creamers and what I noticed is that Reddi Wip was a little sweeter and it had a hint of vanilla while the Southern Home brand seemed to just have sweetness but lacked the vanilla flavoring. Personally, I liked both brands. I can go either way, if you like a hint of sweetness to your dessert/ beverage then I would recommend Southern Home brand; but if you are looking to enhance and sweeten your dessert/beverage then Reddi Wip is for you.

Now, if you are the type of person that buys the cheaper of the brands, (without coupons) Southern Home brand was more cost effective.

If you have tried both…Which one do you prefer?

Old El Paso Date Night

The day of Easter, my husband and I  celebrated our 10 year anniversary. Now of course we were not able to concentrate on us because we have tons of activities planned for the kids but we will have to plan a date for another night.

Both my husband and I enjoy our family Mexican night so you can imagine my surprise when Old El Paso through Platefullco-op sent me a box full of goodies to spice up our night. They sent me a Mexican themed Chips and dip platter, a Margarita pitcher with two tall Margarita glasses and coupons for free Old El Paso dinner entrees. Woo Hoo!

Sooo here is what I’m thinking..1. A Babysitter!!! 2.Movie rental  3. Relax and enjoy an Old El Paso Mexican date night.
