My recent Trumper's Almond

Post by adhoc » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:41 pm

For me, buying creams from Trumper recently has been a 50/50 deal whether or not I get an actual good cream or a dried out one. Dried out creams are usable but never function as good as they should do IMO. I don't know if this problem lies with the suppliers who let their goods sit too long on the shelves though but I'm getting rather tired of it.

My new almond cream was not dry at all but when the text on the lid came in contact with water it all smeared out! This has never happened to me before and I really hope this is just one lid gone wrong -- Trumper should be improving their quality control though, that's for sure.

It looks like it's 30 years old but I just bought it the other week...

Would it be cost prohibitive to buy from Trumper website? What about buying it from Amazon -- I don't think they let anything sit around long.

Didn't they change to lid stickers at some point from having the logo printed directly? Might be a clue as to vintage...

Edit sorry I misread the op- some googling suggests trumpers never actually switched to label stickers like TOBs et al.
