    Love, love, love lemon sauce!

  2. So you like this heavy whipping cream vs. the heavy cream with the pink lid? I thought HWC was more for dessert. Sounds great though! I probably wouldn’t eat if it wasn’t for Traders!

      I’m not sure I’ve ever seen heavy cream with a lid other than a Cool Whip type product. Heavy cream or heavy whipping cream is usually found in a pint or quart at Trader Joe’s. The reason for the name deals with the level of fat.
