Smackin Whip Vegan Whipped Cream

The other day I was sitting at home, thinking about the current state of affairs with the whipped cream drought, when I receive a text from OD. I see whipped cream, I see vegan, and I see him telling me the price as if now is any time for comparison shopping. WHO CARES? JUST BUY IT!

He did, of course, and here it is: Smackin' Whip. I'd never seen it before; he said it was just hanging out amongst the non-vegan whipped cream like it was NBD.


A little internet sleuthing brought me to the brand, Smackin' Good. It seems that they make whip/light whip, pancakes/waffles, and potato knishes; there was very little additional info. All signs point to them being a Kosher company that embraces their accidentally vegan products- kind of like Klein's ice cream.


Taste test time:
Unlike Soyatoo!, Smackin' Whip comes right out of the can...right outta the fridge. The whip has the look and texture of non-vegan whipped cream; you can control it into florets, but it was also build-able for a more impressive presentation. Taste-wise, it had a subtle sweetness: no discernible vanilla, no coconut (like Trader Joe's version).

None of this prevented me from filling my bowl with what would generally be considered a disproportionate amount (there's one scoop of Nada Moo mint chip under there). I was happy to have it, but I'm pretty sure that I'd still choose Trader Joe's in a blind taste test.

    1. JD usually has great tips on which supermarkets have the best kosher sections! Without him, I'm just stumbling around counting on luck.

  2. Niiiiccceee!!!
    What a great find! Gotta say, i’m a big fan of these Kosher people around nyc :)) i suspect the availability of tofutti in bagel shops can be directly linked to those following a kosher diet, which i am forever greatful for!

    Amazing vegan MENU at not vegan Cocoron is amazing, delicious, and the best pile of noodles maybe ever. Great for eating with omnis.

    1. Excellent tip; thank you! Will hopefully check them out next weekend.
      (Also love Tofutti sour cream!)


Have you got something to say? It would be so nice to hear from you!
