  9. The above recipe does not compare in any way to the Sara Lee Original Strawberry Shortcake. Please consider bringing it back or at least giving us poor lost souls the recipe, especially the whipped cream.

  10. I don’t get it I didn’t see one bad comment about this GREAT item. but you guys
    took it off the shelf and not saying why..supply and damand..

  11. Any chance of having back at the stores. We do not understand why yet. We miss it .

  12. OMG…I thought I was the only one. I want some original Sara Lee Strawberry Shortcake it is so yummy. Miss it….Love it….bring it back plz….
    Why did you’ll take it out of stores.

  13. Hi Nancy and Corina, thanks for reaching out to us and sharing your love for this product. There are no plans currently to bring this product back, but we’ll share your comments with the proper Sara Lee team. Thanks again!

  14. The original strawberry shortcake was the best. no other brand or recipes compare. please bring it back.

  15. WOW, didn’t know this was discontinued, what a shame, went looking for it at four different grocery stores this year around the local “strawberry time” in my area, just reminded me I wanted a Sara lee Strawberry Shortcake and could not find one. I loved the cream and cake and just the taste of the strawberries, really didn’t care if there were actual strawberries on it or not, just the “jelly part” was enough for me. I did notice that through the years less cream and strawberries were on the shortcake, but the same taste was still there, so it was still our strawberry shortcake that all the people who have taken the time to write about loved AND WANT IT BACK! Guess it didn’t sell as well as it should, or became cost prohibitive to make, but it seemed to have a lot of followers that took the time to “Google” what had happened to it. We all lost a friend we liked to celebrate with.

  16. I am so glad to hear others say what I’ve been thinking. This cake was great. I ate it my entire life then slowly I began to find it in fewer stores . I did not know it had been discontinued the company should seriously think about redistributing this cake. There is truly no other cake like this one in stores. At least try it out for holidays Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Easter. What do we need to do to get it back?

  17. This was one of the best shortcakes ever!! Nothing, absolutely nothing takes its place. I’m not a fan of the cheesecake. Please, please bring it back!!

  18. It hurt to know that saralee strawberry shortcake was discontinued. My friend and I would go to the store ,each get one of the cakes and sit down and eat the whole cake. I’ve had bad craving for your strawberry shortcake. It’s the best.please….. Please……please bring it back. There is no great strawberry shortcake like Sara Lee. We love your strawberry shortcake. Bring it back……
