Thank you for posting this! It's good to know I can buy regular frosting now, instead of going through the hassle of making it! :D

Not to be a PITA but did you ask about barley malt in flavorings? The reason I ask is because she mentioned the top allergens and since barley malt is not considered an allergen. I would love it if they are gluten free as I really hate to make frosting.

I will grab a can tommorrow since I want to make chocolate cupcakes and give them a call. It likely is a safe product but I am so sensitive that I like to be sure.

Can I offer up my uber-easy chocolate frosting that is out of this world amazing (plus it doesn't have all the crap that canned frosting has in it):

2 c cream-heavy or whipping
2 c chocolate chips--you can use milk, semi-sweet, dark-whatever (white doesn't work as well)

microwave cream just until it starts to boil, dump in chocolate chips and let sit for 2 minutes. Whisk well and either dump over your cake (and serve warm-OMG delish) or put in fridge. Keeps for 2 weeks or so. If you refrigerate, you can just soften it up by popping it back in the microwave for a bit.

That sounds so good and so easy, thank you!!!! My Mom used to make frosting with just powdered sugar milk and vanilla but I can never get it to come out as good as hers did.

Thanks for posting this info. Pete.
I've been using the Duncan Hines Classic Chocolate and am grateful for an easy/tasty alternative for when I can't make my own homemade frosting. I tried one of the dedicated gluten gluten-free frostings and it was terrible.
Raven, let us know what they say about barley malt. My daughter is quite sensitive to CC and so far has not reacted to Duncan Hines at all, so I trust it. Of course, we must always re-read labels regularly for changes.
