Support the independent voice of Phoenix and help keep the future of New Times free.
Well, bring on Christmas -- because we've found Whipped Lightning here in Phoenix
and the liquor stores where you can get it opened this morning at 9. (And thanks to our sisters in Orange County
for tipping us off.)
Find out where to buy espresso hazelnut, alcohol-infused whipped cream in a can after the jump.
Both Tops Liquors in Tempe and Sun Devil Liquors in Mesa
carry Whipped Lightning
, which retails for $11.99 and carries an alcohol content of up to 18.25 percent, according to the kind clerk who answered the phone bright and early this morning at Sun Devil.
She rattled off the flavors she carries, including white chocolate, raspberry, caramel pecan, tropical passion (gross! sounds like eating shaving cream!), cinnamon, strawberry colada, coconut, German chocolate cake, hazelnut espresso and pumpkin pie.
"It's really good," she promises.
This might just call for a tasting session at this afternoon's Chow Bella staff meeting. We'll keep you posted.
We haven't been able to find Cream
, the competitor to Whipped Lightning, but apparently you can find an online retailer on Cream's website
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
