Birthday Cake Cool Whip is hitting stores.

Cool Whip no longer needs to sit atop something else. It’s a dessert all on its own.

What used to play the role of real whipped cream is now taking on rich flavors that will tempt you to eat it straight from the tub.

With Oreo and Double Chocolate Brownie flavors already available, Kraft Heinz has launched Birthday Cake flavor.

Instagrammer @thejunkgoat found some at a Schnucks grocery store in the Midwest and gives the concoction a score of 10 out of 10.

“Not as pretty as you would think but it’s not slacking on the flavor! Well done.”

The response on social media has been generally positive.

Although there are plenty of Cool Whip purists.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
