I only discovered the appeal of Solo-brand Almond Cake & Pastry Filling a couple of years ago, and I have been occasionally using it primarily as an ingredient in preparing layer cakes and banana cream pies. I’ve noticed during the past couple of months that it no longer seems to be carried by the local shops where I used to be able to find it here in Miami.
Has anyone seen it in your local markets in the past few months?
I am not sure yet whether the reason I am no longer able to find it is that the few local grocers who used to carry it simply decided that it wasn’t selling well enough to be worth continuing to stock. I do see that it’s still available online (eg Amazon), at least for the moment. I’ve also seen that Solo Almond Paste (which is a different product–the cake & pastry filling has coconut and a different texture) is still easy to find locally here.
