****Last Chance to win a nice donated item in Marey's Pediatric Cancer raffle/fundraiser. The drawing will be later tonight, and winners will be posted on LMNOP tomorrow. You guys have been amazing! Thank you! If you didn't get a chance...you can still donate One dollar...just one dollar and help two families with kids going through bone marrow transplants.

ON A MISSION......

.....then sidetracked by a discovery.

Don't you hate it when that happens? You get organized, you have a plan, you stop off to pick up your sidekick. All is going well.




But I stopped off for a few staples at Wallyworld and it screwed up my plans. How do I let my basic need for some milk, bread, and whipped cream throw me off center?

This is how! Really....do I go with the beloved Reddi-Wip or try the new Cool Whip in the aerosol can? Since my carbon footprint is the size of Godzilla's, I buy both products. I had to find out which one I preferred to sit and squirt in my mouth serve to my guests this Holiday Season. Here's what I discovered.



Reddi-Wip has more calories per serving...with a serving being two Tbsp.(5g). and it says, "eat your words with Reddi-wip on pancakes."


BUT...Cool Whip uses a bigger Tbsp.(6g).

Let's not even get into those saturated and trans fats details because the math doesn't pan out based on what I've read and what I have stored in my two brain cells.



So we do the taste test. Honestly? The Reddi-Wip tastes just like Reddi-Wip, and the Cool-Whip aerosol tast just like Cool-whip in the tub. Wait.....should I try that taste test again??


HUH??

Yes, by all means, please try that taste test again, your readers insist.

Be grateful you have two brain cells. I waved goodbye to my last two functioning brain cells yesterday. They spun out of here on two wheels and said they were never coming back.

Oh my goodness...this made me laugh so much.
Perhaps you can get a job at Good Housekeeping in their TEST kitchen....
I need the pink keyboard. Is there a "Oh crap" key???? I need that for sure.

I love the ReddiWhip one...tell me this? How can a tablespoon be two different sizes? Somebody is cheating....

Cool Breeze said...

You know, it's like I can taste it and smell too.

The Running Girl said...

Ok, how can a Tbsp of one be 5g and the other be 6g? Isn't a Tbsp a Tbsp???? By the way, I think you need to try your taste test again. And maybe this time, try it on some favorite dessert!

I love taking pudding and folding in coolwhip..it's like chocolate mousse..cheap and easy.

Cortney said...

The grams are probably different because one is denser than the other. The real question is WHICH ONE IS BETTER TO SQUIRT IN YOUR MOUTH!?!?!?

Cool Whip IN A SQUIRT CONTAINER??? My life is now complete.

I love them both. But I never eat them.

And I'm sorry, but I can't read about squirting in mouths without getting perversely giggly.

I like Reddi Whip the best. I am not the biggest cool whip fan although it does serve it's purpose when mixed with cream cheese : ) and thrown into a cake mix. Thank you for the taste comparison.
