We’ve found Target’s Market Pantry heavy whipping cream to be thick and yummy. WalMart’s is a little cheaper, but is only slightly thicker than whole milk – big thumbs down.
Sam’s Club carries Sinton’s heavy cream for $2.34, and it’s very thick, too, but it’s not ultra-pasturized, which means it goes bad much faster than the Market Pantry brand. King Soopers carries Meadow Rich heavy cream – good quality, but runs around $5-6 last I checked.
Oh yes, and Target’s brand comes in a plastic bottle with a screw-on top, a huge step above all of the rest.
We’ll make a special trip into Target just for heavy cream. We could get it cheaper elsewhere, but when we considered the price, quality, and shelf life, Market Pantry won out.
Are there any items that you’ll pay a little more for or make a special trip for? What are they and why?
