Sandy from Sanibel Island Wonders Why Whipped Lightning Had to Be Invented AFTER She Finished College.

Dear Fab (are u still there?)

Could you post this news story about "Whipped Lightning"? What I wouldn't have given back in my college days for something like this, whipped cream with alcohol in it. It has three times the alcohol than a beer. And it tastes great on pudding!

Apparently it is selling out at stores all around Florida campuses, and I'd suppose beyond.



Alcoholic Whipped Cream Causes Buzz On Campus

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.


  1. At a holiday party this year, one of my colleagues was spraying this toxic junk on top of shots of Kahlua. I suffered through one and it was absolutely awful. I don't know if anyone else enjoyed it, but several acted as if it was manna.

  2. It's all about getting loaded quick for the undergraduates, and I guess for the professors too...

  3. From the website:

    "We've never had Whipped Lightning tested to determine how many calories are in a serving. Whipahol is not a food product and is not subject to FDA labeling requirements; it is an alcoholic beverage. You should consume Whipahol in moderation, please enjoy it responsibly."

    This also suggests to me "We're not going to take the time to calculate the calories based on the ingredients" and therefore "We really don't give a crap about your health, brazen consumers!"

    Fun times!

  4. You can put the whipped lightning on top of a glass of this!

  5. Now we can all create Drunkenstein faster than ever before..."LIFE! Give my Creation LIFE!!"

  6. I went through a phase in my undergrad career when I drank chocolate milk and Kahlua for breakfast.
    I would have loved this addition...too bad I'm older and wiser.
