I remember when our first niece, Rachel was one, we got her 3 cans of Redi-Whip for Christmas (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry!) and squirted it in her mouth and all over her hands. That would NOT be an appropriate gift here in Allergy Land. Actually, finding anything resembling whipped cream has been nearly impossible. The closest thing we could find was something called Soyatoo, a soy creamer in an aerosolized can….$6 a can, the propellant usually dies after 2-3 uses and scary mold grows in the nozzle without vigilant post-use scrubbing.
Enter the Blue Can of Wonder, Rich’s whip, $3 for a HUGE can at the Gordon Food Service. The problem with this is having to get the bowls and mixer out every time we want whipped cream. Today was a huge success. My dad let us borrow the iSi cream whipper we got him for Christmas a few years ago to see if it would whip the chemicals….yeah baby….it worked. I haven’t been this excited since discovering Sunbutter or Ian’s TV dinners.0
