Cool Whip is made from shortening, water, corn syrup and chemicals.

I can't see eating junk like that, even if I thought it tasted good, which I don't.

I have to confess, I love the stuff. I know what it is and what it is not. I would never try to fool myself into thinking it is real whipped cream or anything like that.

We never buy it, but if we ever do have any on hand then I have been known to just go at it with a spoon. I especially like it out of the freezer.

The only time, as I recall, I've used cool whip is on top of pumpkin pie thankgiving time. Ya know, I think they make it in flavors now like choc & strawberry. I much prefer the aerosol can (redi whip?) for dessert etc.

Stirring a bit of vanilla into Cool Whip improves it considerably. :)

I'm pretty sure they sell French Vanilla flavored Cool Whip now.

I like Cool Whip. I prefer the real thing, or Redi-Wip, but Cool Whip is good too. I like to make pistachio-fruit fluff (it has lots of names, but that is what I call it) with Cool Whip. We usually use Cool Whip (sometimes refrigerated and sometimes frozen) for our Thanksgiving pumpkin pie. Growing up, we usually used Dream Whip. I like that too. If you don't know what that is, it is a powder that you whip into milk.

DH likes it but I don't like it at all. It leaves a funny after taste.
