    The mere mention of Cool Whip makes me yearn for what I used to call Jello Cake. I can’t remember the exact recipe, but it involved making up a regular old yellow cake, poking holes in it with a straw or toothpicks or something, then pouring not-yet-solidified jello over the top, covering the whole thing with cool whip, and chilling for a while. Mmmmm. I think you might have to chill the jello for a bit first. It might sound gross, but it is really delicious.

    I am not ashamed to admit that I LOVE Cool Whip, regular, not lite, please. I know it’s just sugar and has no dairy, but really, we don’t use that much of it THAT often. I prefer it to fresh whipped cream. Shhh, don’t tell anyone! 😉 Have you seen that it’s now in a can, like ReddiWhip? I may have to try that, but I DON’T like Reddi Whip. I don’t even care for no-name whipped toppings. I’m sure the Cool Whip in a can is much like Reddi Whip, so I’ll stick with my Cool blue tub!

    Lara, that is “Stripe it Rich!” cake. Somewere, I have a story about my mother’s failed attempt to make a reverse Stripe it Rich! cake. That is, a chocolate cake with vanilla pudding stripes. Long story short, it tasted good but was very unattractive.

    Katrina, I think it’s all a matter of what one grew up on. I didn’t try fresh whipped cream until I was a teenager. I consider it a different species than Cool Whip! I guess I like them both, but in different ways. I’m not crazy about canned/squeeze type whipped creams, though they do look pretty. Oh, and I haven’t seen the Cool Whip in a can. I’ll bet it tastes like regular Cool Whip.

    Thanks for the heads up on GOOP. I love Gwenyth, and have always felt she would be a great friend if only our paths would collide. I signed up for the newsletter until that happens.

    FWIW, I like Cool Whip & real whipped cream. Both yummy in their own way. :)

    So is it Stripe it Rich or Poke Cake. Are they both the same thing? Naturaly, I remember the flashy Jell-O title. LOL.

    I usually buy Cooks’ Country in the store, so I have a lot of old issues. I’ll look and see if I can find this.
