I don't buy heavy cream very often, but all of the heavy cream I have seen in stores is ultra pasteurized, which has a longer shelf life than regular pasteurized.

If you live near a Trader Joe's, these little cartons are great to keep on hand in the pantry.

Here in Quebec, I 'believe' (but can't authenticate), it is required to put the MF on te cartons. Too many people get confused with all the different names for cream.
There is "Country Cream - Table Cream - Half n Half - Cooking Cream - Old Tyme Cream - Table Cream - Coffee Cream - and so many others I can't remember" - but with putting in the MF you have a much better idea of what it is.
Our labels read 10%, 18%, 35% and that's about it! The additives also read just the same. Seeing as they don't need to list the quantities of the ingredients, they could possibly vary them, depending on what it's intended use is. I'm sure the Dairy's have very 'believable' explanations. - If we were to ask.

Di... my husband (ex) was born in Cross-in-Hand, Sussex. Yup, have heard of and have had Devon Cream... yum!

The one I remember most was in a small village on our way to Land's End in Cornwall. We hadn't had lunch and were discovering that all the little places were closed between 12:30 and 3 or 4 pm - we were starved by te time we found a place that had just opened.... but it was delicious. I actually can't remember what it was I had the cream on but it was so good I kept ordering Devon Cream wherever we went!

could be why I'm lactose intolerant now...
