Horrible frosting

Bought this chocolate frosting last week and it was horrible. I was applying it to a cooled cake and it started running down the sides. The icing pooled onto the plate.. Put cake into refrigerator and the icing never became the creamy texture I was used to it just stared to run off the plate. Use to love your frosting but am changing to Betty Crocker. Shame on you!

I don’t know what Duncan Hines has done to the recipe but this is terrible. It’s like eating sand! After reading reviews, this appears to be an ongoing issue. Used to be all I would buy but will likely not buy again.

Grainy and aweful……I just started to frost cupcakes with Duncan Hines creamy milk chocolate frosting and my husband grab one to try and said yuk to the frosting. I tried it from the can and it was grainy…..just aweful. I also had a can of Betty Crocker frosting which I had purchased at the same time and finished frosting the rest with that which was very smooth and yummy. Won’t buy Duncan Hines again.

Product was like syrup! What have you done to the recipe? The icing is running off of my cooled cake! I've used your products for about 12 yrs now and I have never seen this before. I'll be happy to send you a picture of this mess. I bought three cans & they are all like SYRUP!

I purchased this product 2 weeks ago. I was ready to frost a cake and decided to try a spoonful. This taste of this frosting was terrible. It had a chemical taste and there is no way I was going to use it on the cake I had just baked. Not sure what is happening to some of the products that I previously enjoyed, but this is a never again purchase. Yuck!

Just iced my cake with Duncan Hines milk chocolate creamy frosting, and it is so grainy I can even take it to work tomorrow for our Christmas dinner. Also other people have written reviews on this same problem 3 months age and it is still happening, So disappointed in Duncan Hines right now. Please do something about this issue. Would not recommend this product at this time although it was my favorite frosting. As off 10 months age there didn’t seem to be any problems with this product, so what happened?

I bought three containers of chocolate over the past 6 months and all of them are so grainy we couldn't use them. This used to be our favorite frosting but it's not being mixed properly so I have to buy another brand.

The Duncan Hines creamy chocolate frosting used to be the best on the market, in my opinion. I just iced a cake this morning, and to my dismay, the frosting is now darker, thinner and filled with granuals...almost as if the sugar wasn't properly mixed in. I opened the second container, assuming the first was a bad batch and it was the same. As I bit into my cake, the granules actually crunched, making it an unpleasant experience. Gone are the creamy texture and natural chocolate taste that rivaled my own homemade icing. It's bad enough your cake mixes are going down in volume (yes, we consumers noticed) but this is too much. Even at a lower price point than a bakery cake, I would just as soon take the time to make my own from scratch, if the quality is now so poor.

I LOVE the creamy chocolate frosting by Duncan Hines! I prefer creamy over whipped any day. It’s so rich and smooth and very yummy. Not pricey at all, very affordable. I would recommend this chocolate icing to others
