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.
