Anyone that's watching their money can buy so much more here with the sales and the double coupons. Publix has such a stronghold in Florida that in many areas they are the only show in town and can charge accordingly. But they did make killer sandwiches!
They really did a pretty good Cuban sandwich. It actually tasted somewhat authentic.

The thing I miss about Publix is Boar's Head lunch meats. It is what made those Publix subs great.

I know! Boars Head meat is the best and I think Lowes is the only chain that sells it around here.

I am not bothered or joyed by boar's head. I know that it is a northern thing and somewhat a newcomer to the south, but like someone mentioned in an earlier thread, put on a blindfold and you'd never know the difference. Yes, I bet you!!

Question Publix cake......can you help me make one?

We just celebrated my little one's 3 birthday and I baked her a cake. Box mix and icing. In Florida, I would have order a cake from Publix (marble with whipped topping) as they were our favorite. Well, now another Bday is coming up, and the family misses our old cakes. Does anyone have any idea of how to make the whipped topping from Publix? I can whip up some heavy cream, but there must be something else that they put in it.

For Thanksgiving we are headed up to the mountains and will definalty stop at the Publix in Spartenburg, but the Bday is before then. Just as an FYI, the last time we went to Spartenburg Publix, whipped topping is a special order so you have to call ahead to have them make it. Any insight is appreciated!!!

Are the Publix cakes with whipped topping that different from the Harris Teeter or Bi Lo or Super Target ones? (Serious question - I don't know - we only go to Publix when visitng my parents in Beaufort SC and it's never a cake occasion)

you should try the lowes foods in mint hill. They do a lot of wedding cakes so they must be good.

Being honest you probably do not want to know what is in the whipped topping, lets just say it's not very healthy.
