We would like to try some whip topping. Does any one use either Redi Whip or Cool Whip topping?

I have no idea about the allergy info on either of them. Redi-whip is the stuff in a can, right? That stuff generally tastes more like real whipped cream because it's made with actual dairy.

I always thought that Kool-Whip is non-dairy topping and it has a different, very sweet flavor. So if you have dairy issues that would be the obvious choice.

Cool Whip is "non-dairy" but contains milk. It is called "non-dairy" because it is not milk or cream, but does contain a milk derivitive.
Reddi Whip is milk and cream (and sugar) that is whipped by nitrous oxide as it comes out of the can.
I like the taste of Reddi Whip (although homemade tastes better). But I use Cool Whip when I need it to stay fluffy for a long time.
Edited for spelling.

Another alternative is to make Dream Whip (a JELLO product).

It comes out like Cool Whip, but doesn't have that odd "cool whip" taste. To me, it seems like a really light homemade whipped cream. Tastes more like it.

It's a powder you whip with skim milk.

I've used both with no problems. I prefer the Cabot whipped cream in the can over the Reddi Whip. Tastes so much better.

We use both with no problem.

We love the French Vanilla Cool Whip. You can only get it at this time of year.
