What's Inside?

I wish the video didn't freeze on the frame that gives away the end, but it's still worth the view!

  1. OMG! Okay, that's a bummer. Notice he licks it at the end too? I think after I found all that out I'd throw it in the trash. In fact, if I have any I will because it just killed it for me.

  2. Thanks for sharing this Regina! I'll be sharing this with everyone I know. I love the comment "if you're not a lazy person you can just make it with heavy whipping cream and air" ROFL! Add a little splenda and Davinci's vanilla and you have whipped cream that BETTER than Cool Whip!

    I'm sorry, I have to dissent here. In my mind the sensational tone and leaps of logic will work against him in the minds of intelligent people. (I wouldn't be surprised if Snopes picked up on this.) And that's too bad, because he's right, Cool Whip is not fit for consumption. But most of what he says is irrelevant to proving his point, or else completely false.

    First, there's nothing wrong with coconut oil; in fact, it is the only healthy ingredient in Cool Whip. Second, there is not actually any antifreeze in Cool Whip - antifreeze is so poisonous that it is not allowed as a food additive; the product that is used in Cool Whip may be chemically related to antifreeze, but it is not the same thing. Third, there's nothing wrong with getting oil and water to mix against their will - both egg yolks and mustard will do that for you and give you a lovely mayonnaise, Caesar dressing, or vinaigrette. Fourth, most people who make homemade whipped cream add sugar, not just air, and he has just told us that HFCS is the same as sugar. Fifth, the ultrapasteurized cream he showed isn't "just cream" as he claims - it has stabilizers added to it because ultrapasteurization denatures the fat globules in cream and make it harder to whip.

    I'm not saying I would eat Cool Whip, or that anyone else should. I just think he could've made his point without being intellectually dishonest. And doing so would've given him more credibility.

  4. Where he says that if you're not lazy you can make your own whipped cream, that's really only part of the problem. Sure, cool whip is full of fats, but there's (cue the fanfare) no cholesterol in it... unlike real whipped cream, which (big sigh) THEY will warn you is full of cholesterol.

    Speaking of cool whip though, has anyone else noticed that the sugar free cool whip actually has more carbs than the regular full-o-HFCS cool whip? What's the sense in that?! Give me some real cream (as un-mucked-about-with as you can find in your area), and I'll whip it myself.
