Alcohol In Whipped Cream?!By
Don’t be surprised to find whipped cream being sold off of the shelf at your local liquor store. A new product is being marketed as alcohol-infused whipped cream. The can, and the cream, look much like dairy product that you lathered over your last banana split; only this cream’s got punch.
One maker of this deceptively intoxicating product now markets five different flavors. Touted as a great topping for ice cream, jello, warm beverages and mixed drinks, the creamy white foam hits with the power of 30 proof liquor. That’s about four times the content of your average beer.
It’s called “Cream” and produced by Kingfish Spirits. The company’s website can be found at www.givemecream.com. You can buy it at your local liquor store, or order it online. Unlike normal whipped cream, the alcohol-infused version does not have to be refrigerated.
As you would imagine, not everyone is excited about the novel new approach to alcohol marketing. It’s already been banned in Michigan. A few other states are eyeing Cream pretty closely, but most continue to allow off the shelf sales.
Unfortunately, Cream sounds just as cool to kids, as it does to many adults. Past MpoweredParent Alerts have warned about vodka-infused jello being smuggled into teen parties. This product adds to that concern, and provides another novel way for alcohol use to be concealed. It could also be a worry for those who unwittingly consume the Cream, without knowing that it contains 15% liquor. Users report its taste as being sweet and confectionery, with a ting of alcohol. Inexperienced drinkers may not identify the intoxicating content. And yes, it is entirely possible to get totally whipped off of this cream!
