Trader Joe's shelf stable whipping cream

Have anyone else tried this? It's sold in an 8oz carton on the grocery shelf. The expiration date is May 2013. It is stored in the pantry and refrigerated for at least 6 hours prior to whipping up. It was cheap (can't remember the price) so I thought it was worth a try. Ingredient list is cream and carrageenan. Wiki said this ingredient is a stabilizer and thickener of mainly proteins.

Well, it whipped up nicely and tasted rich and creamy. Similar to whipped cream. I haven't quite passed my judgement yet. But, first bite I do like it. I'd like to hear other opinions about it. I'm not quite sure that I like the "fakey-ness" of it.
