Alcoholic Whipped Cream Causes Buzz On Campus
WFTV ^ | November 25, 2010

The federal government ordered the makers of Four Loko to change its dangerous combination of caffeine and alcohol to something safer. However, it's not just beverages getting the controversial boost, its whipped cream too.

It might look like a regular can of whipped cream, but if you take a closer look at the label, you'll see why some university students are really buzzing about whipped lightning.

"I think it's awesome, you can throw it on some Jell-O shots. It'd be fantastic," UCF student Bo Frisby said. The whipped treat comes in different flavors, and it's infused with alcohol. The alcohol content is fairly high, 18 percent by volume, that's more than three times the amount found in most beers.

Liquor stores around the UCF area said the new form of booze is flying off the shelves.

"I'm not surprised, it's college. I'm not surprised at all actually. I'm actually shocked they didn't come up with it sooner," UCF student John Washington said. But critics said it might not be the best idea.

"I mean if people already get high off whipped cream bottles, you put alcohol into that mix, it's not exactly a good combination," UCF student Lisette Diaz said. Students said the thing that makes it dangerous is if they put it with things like Jell-O shots, where the alcohol flavor is already masked, they could get extremely intoxicated without realizing how much alcohol they've had.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving in Florida said it's never even heard of the alcoholic whipped cream, but would be concerned about the high level of alcohol packed in something most people consider dessert.

"Even regular whipped cream is something people don't use in moderation, alcoholic whipped cream, I don't know if that would be a good idea," Diaz said.

The State Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco said alcoholic whipped cream is regulated, like any other alcoholic beverage.

Mothers Against Drunk Drivers would go after earth worms if it was a viable case to promote their agenda.

Now whipped cream will have to be the scape goat for the I.Q. challenged who abuse everything they come across.

I don’t care if its alcohol laced mustard. Who ever heard of an alcoholic whipped cream? “Hi, I’m whipped cream, and I’m an alcoholic”.

Could it be you are whipping too hard?

I am by no means a prude. But I am not now nor have I ever been a drunk. It amazes me how I got through college without always seeking means to getting a buzz from alcohol, as it appears that this generation does.

The county where my college was was dry. But the next county over was wet. Funny, but I don’t ever recall going to the next county to get alcohol. I was too busy attending classes, studying, and working (sometimes 40 hours a week).

If I had a son or a daughter in college and found them getting drunk, they would be out of that school and on their own.

I’ve been making eggnog-flavored whipped cream for years. Here’s the kid-friendly version, but it can revert to an adult beverage er topping with a minor substitution. :)

1 pint heavy cream, chilled in freezer until thick/slushy
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp (or more) **freshly grated** nutmeg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 tsp. rum extract

Using a chilled bowl and beater(s), whip the cream to soft peaks (using medium-high speed), then gradually add sugar and other ingredients (while using medium or medium-low speed), stopping occasionally to scrape bowl with spatula. Beat to stiff peaks or desired consistency. Freezes well for use over several days - just break off desired amount with a spoon and let thaw on top of dessert if needed. Thaws very quickly on warm desserts; no waiting necessary.

American pint, 16 oz. That’s the standard carton size, at least until the grocery shrink ray hits them.

That and pinnacle whipped cream vodka for the jello shots.

Just the WCV is a great solo shooter to warm the toes, without burning the throat.

How does one get high off the non-alcohol whipped cream?

It is pressurized with nitrous oxide. You hold the can upright and inhale the gas.

Whipits. A very rapid head rush followed by uncontrollable giggling, facial flushing and then a headache. Some apparently find it sexually arousing. Not so different from “huffing” a number of substances, including glue or those amyl nitrate deals that apparently were once popular in gay circles.

I dated a girl in college who tried it on a whim right in the aisle of Winn-Dixie, didn’t know she was going to do it, she couldn’t stop giggling afterwards. She had to lean on my shoulder to get out of the store. She did have impulse control issues and ended up with a substance abuse problem. Pity, that, she was a fun girl.
