I usually get Betty Crocker but they didn’t have that. Thought I’d try this. It tastes so bad. Not at all like cream cheese frosting and tastes like expired butter? And i just opened it.

Why does it taste like Coconut?

1 out of 5 stars
Watercolorchild - 6 months ago
originally posted on duncanhines.com
I bought this for a red velvet cake and decided to taste it before I iced. It tastes like coconut instead of cream cheese. I bought a different brand and it tasted like cream cheese but when I went back to this one it tasted like coconut. But there isn’t coconut in the ingredients list. I don’t understand. Not appetizing for red velvet cake.

Want Old Recipe BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1 out of 5 stars
Tasting in the Past - 7 months ago
originally posted on duncanhines.com
New and Improved is almost NEVER better. Most usually a huge disappointment. I'd love to get back your old frosting recipes & container size. I have at least 4 of your icing containers. All have progressively shrunk over the years. Did ya think we wouldn't notice the taste & that it doesn't go nearly as far? I guess since the cakes aren't as big as they used to be, it is assumed that the smaller tubs would still cover a cake. Please give us back our delicious cream cheese icing-frosting of days gone by in the original sized containers.

I bought this frosting to top a spice cake for my husband’s birthday. The frosting doesn’t taste bad, but has no cream cheese flavor at all - it just tastes like regular vanilla frosting.

Served carrot cake with the creamy cream cheese frosting to my company and was embarrassed that the frosting did NOT have a cream cheese taste at all. Tasted like a melted crayon.

This frosting is a bit too sweet to enjoy on its own, but once you add it onto a cake the flavor of the cake tones down the sweetness, and at the point is the perfect amount of sweet. It is a cream cheese frosting so it is nice and easy to spread onto your cake once it has cooled down.

Best frosting flavor around and a total crowd pleaser. Frosting is never overpriced in my opinion and this is still affordable. Plus it’s easy to find in many stores that sell cake mixes. Recommend

I have yet to find a cream cheese icing that actually tastes like cream cheese - this has a different taste than their basic vanilla icing but it doesn't have the rich creaminess I expect with a cream cheese frosting. Perhaps its just a fancy vanilla and we feel better about using this over the vanilla when icing cakes that would typically call for a cream cheese icing.

Most of the time I make my own frosting. To me home made frosting tastes a lot better. But if I’m going to buy a store bought frosting this is the brand that I’m gonna get. It has a good taste to it and does not have that nasty grease taste that some of them have which is not good.
