I just think it tastes better than Cool-Whip. It to me has that ice cream parlour taste that you expect with a nice hot fudge sundae.
I worked (very briefly) as a grocery store stocker while I was in high school. One of the main nightime activities for the regulars was a little dose of "whippets", as the process of huffing nitrous was known in the early seventies.
It is a miracle any of the matrons in Monroe, LA ever got a can that worked. They would go through entire cases of the stuff.[}:)][}:)][:0][:0]
LOL Those employees must have known some of the bunch I worked with at a factory many years ago who were also into "Wesson Oil Parties". I don’t think they were attending stir-fry classes at the nearby gourmet shop.[:D]
I had a good laugh having lunch one day in place that serves as college town bar at night. Someone had apparently ordered a dessert, and the waitress went to the cooler to get more whipped cream, only to find can after can had no nitrous. I think she went through six cans before she found one that would squirt.
Oops, family picnic in 12 hours – got to get some supplies! (The nieces and nephews won’t know what hit them. Now if I can only stay away from my siblings!)
Really? I’m a race car driver!
It tastes like some kind of medicine I used to get as a kid -milk of magnolia or something. Ecch! Also the redi whip water balloon bombs made folks mad too, a summertime type of snowball.[:)]
Costco’s "Business Center" locations sell nitrous carts very cheap…or so I hear.
As for not eating it off other things, well, suffice to say, we travel a lot, and you can pick up Reddi-Wip at almost any grocery store, and it will keep nicely in a hotel ice bucket….and you don’t have to get the TSA people all curious about why you’re travelling with a balloon whisk.
As for Dream-Whip…..I’m astonished they still make the stuff. It’s always had an "off" flavor to me that I can’t quite put words to; it’s not vanillin, it’s something else.
The key topping on "make your own sundae nights" at my house was and is always Reddi-Whip. The only thing wrong with it is that red cap does not stay on after you break the little tab.
The Redi Whip founder recently passed away. After burial mourners topped of his grave with Whip Cream and a Cherry……..Conan Obrian from his TV show.
Reddi-Wip is one of the many saving graces of the Atkins diet, for me,(sorry for crossing threads, here)…… I think it’s got a pretty low carb count, even when you mound it on a plate. [:)]
Anyone here ever buy a can of Redi-Whip where the ‘propellant’ had mysteriously ‘disappeared’??
Lou-who had a misspent youth finding out REAL good sources of nitrous…those people at Service Merchandise THOUGHT I was a real serious dessert chef!
Reminds me of the time my Dad was gonna put a little Redi-Whip on his slice of pie. A New can plus an Inexperienced Dad equals an entire can of whipped cream up the kitchen wall![:0][:D] Dad was never again allowed to touch a redi-Whip can.[:)]
Last summer? Paul, you are so bad. I hope my kids never learn about that. Surprised they have not thought of it.[:)]
We use to blow up balloons with the stuff, add helium, attach strings and wait for some person to pop it with a pin. Someone would do it almost every time.[:D][}:)]
It was always interesting to watch the guilty party. Unfortunately some bystanders would get plastered with the stuff. We stopped it when some folks got real mad. I guess I don’t blame them now.
We did that kind of stuff last summer when I was young.
