Anything that is organic and not ultra pasteurized and grass fed raw is always preferable.

My local Aldi's carries the HWC all the time. A few weeks before Christmas I went to one in another town and they didn't have any. I'm not sure if they were out, couldn't find any workers except the 1 cashier, but I couldn't even find a sign for it - I looked around the area I find it in the other store. I hadn't bought any since the summer, so I thought they stopped carrying it. The very next week I saw it listed in the flyer, but not sure if that flyer covered that town or not.

Just an FYI - dairy is usually a locally or regionally produced item. Dairy farmers form cooperatives to sell their milk to the big processors - but your standard generic, store brand, and name brand milk cartons may all contain milk from the very same farm or even the same cow!
My fav, too! It is initially more expensive (Costco) in my area than some of the other brands, but it is SO thick, I find myself using a lot less in recipes. To make "half and half", I find it is more like 30% cream/70% water.

Horizon has added Carageenan (thickener) and Carageenan is also a form of MSG. A lot of creams have it in them. Read your labels and the only ingredient in "cream" should be "cream."

Trader Joes sells organic heavy cream (no added fillers) and it's $3.29 a pint here in SoCal, which is the same price (or lower) as the non-organic brands sold at the other stores around here.

Going to check my Aldi's store for cream. It is really expensive at my regular store and I've been using a lot. At least I think 8oz in 2 weeks is alot . I don't use it in coffee - just recipes.

Anyone know how it works in recipes if I use 1/2 cream and dilute with 1/2 water?

Nationally, I'd have to vote for Trader Joe's cream. Aldi's Friendly Farms is good, too.

Locally, in the DC area we can sometimes find Shenandoah's Pride brand heavy whipping cream...and it's oh so good. Ingredients: heavy cream. SOOOO thick, it whips to butter in a heartbeat if you aren't careful.

And this depends on how many cows in that pasture. When over-grazed they will eat just about anything and, trust me, green onion flavored milk/cream is not very good.

For those with HEB markets you might check for Central Market organic. It costs less than Horizon organic and is so thick and yummy.

why would whipping cream be seasonal----i know when i was at my aldis a few months ago i purposely stopped for the cream and all they had was half and half, now i was there a couple weeks ago, and they had the cream, but didn't get any, cuz i do get the walmart brand and didn't need it at that time, but if its as good as you all say, i will have to stop and get some, i use it everyday in my tea---love the stuff

I use the "Manufacturing Cream" at Smart and Final. Has the most fat and 0 carbs and cost 6-7 dollars for a half gallon.

If you're sensitive to food additives, read the labels carefully! It is EXTREMELY difficult to find HWC that is truly just cream. I used to use the Darigold stuff sold by Costco and loved it...but it has a lot of thickeners in it. I started noticing that my blood sugar was reacting after having some.

I found the Trader Joe's brand that has nothing but cream (it's in a light purple carton). After doing some blood sugar testing on both of them, I had no reactions from the TJ's "pure" cream.

That turned me into a rather rabid label reader...it is truly amazing how many things--even those labeled organic--have various thickeners and additives in them: sour cream, HWC, cream cheese. If the additives don't bother you, great! But I'm thinking that I may not be the only person who has blood sugar reactions to the thickeners in dairy products, so be aware that it could be a place where you could gain benefits by switching to a product with no additives.

Thank you. After reading this I checked the labels on the 3 brands I, for some reason, have in my fridge. Even the one marked organic has 'stuff' besides cream. I will definitely check the Trader Joe's out.
