    It's Bakemark.
    I have Sweetex from Proctor & Gamble.
    Isn't Westco part of Bakemark?
    What are you using it for?

    I'd be shocked if there was any real difference from brand to brand with this shortening. It would be splitting hairs...well that is something us bakers do.....


    So I hope you'll come back and tell us if you noticed any differences? Please.

    If your using this for direct applications like frosting the difference between brands is dramatic, especially texture and palatability.
