Y'all Reddi for This? Whipped Cream Shortage Likely After Explosion Shuts Down Factory
Your holiday dessert might be without the sweet, creamy topping this year.
Some supermarket shelves that usually feature the product are empty across America, with many customers seeing signs that say: "All canned whip toppings will be in short supply this season!"
The shortage stems from an explosion at a Florida plant producing nitrous oxide, the gas that sprays Reddi-wip out of the can. The Pensacola blast left one worker dead and resulted in a shutdown of the factory.
But if you're clamoring for that creamy treat with your holiday dessert, there's another option — make it yourself!
Stephen Collucci, a pastry chef at Cookshop in New York, showed Inside Edition how to concoct your own whip cream topping for dessert.
“You need heavy cream, sugar and a little vanilla and you can spice it up by adding nutmeg or brandy,” he said.
Just whip everything together in a bowl and you a perfectly good substitute for Reddi-wip.
