I have an old fruit cake recipe and it calls for spry, what can I substitute for spry?

2 Answers 2


Use any other shortening, Spry is just a brand name (not being produced any more).

We discussed Spry just a while ago in this post: Mystery ingredient in cookies with cream tartar


Years ago I also used spry. But now I use Crisco and it works exactly the same!
