No--same era (1966-1971), but different products.

I have a recipe to make it!

First of all, I remember this fondly as a topping for jello cake back in the day. My mom got a recipe to make whip n chill from scratch when the stores quit carrying it. The recipe is as follows:

1 pkg vanilla cook n serve pudding
2 cups water
1 3 0z pkg gelatin
1 cup of whipping cream, whipped (makes about 2 cups) or an 8 ounce pkg of cool whip.

In a small saucepan, cook vanilla pudding and water until thickened about 10-15 minutes. Whisk in dry jello of choice until dissolved. Chill for about 20 minutes. Fold cream or cool whip into the cooled gelatin mixture. It tastes better if you use the whipped cream, and cheaper than buying the big pkgs and trying to divide them. Hope this helps any retro foodies out there :)

Exclamation "Real" Whip n' Chill - The missing ingredient

Sometime back in the '90s, I called Kraft to inquire as to the availability of Whip N' Chill. At that time, even the foodservice version did not exist. The lady that I spoke to was incredibly helpful in aiding me to determine the ingredients of the original product. She actually had another Kraft employee search through their product museum and fax me a copy of the ingredients list from an original package, so that I could attempt making my own from scratch.

Using this information, I was able to come up with a concoction that was similar, but not identical. The Whip N' Chill that I came to relish had a simultaneously smooth but grainy texture. It was this "graininess" that I was trying to duplicate. As it turned out, this texture was due to the now-missing ingredient, course tapioca flour. That is, the tapioca flour grains are smaller than "small-pearl" tapioca, but larger than normal tapioca flour.

Since it takes some time to modify tapioca starch (cook it), I only made a few batches due to all the effort required. At the time, the only tapioca I could find was standard pearl variety, so I first ground the pearls into meal, then cooked the meal. This is known as pre-gelled or modified tapioca starch.

The other ingredients that I used, in order to duplicate the original "chemically" taste, were milk, Jello instant pudding mix and Dream Whip. The pudding has a lot of gelatin and modified food starch, and the Dream Whip has all the hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated fats. Cool Whip would probably work just as well as the Dream Whip, as they are similar in ingredients.

Now, I will probably try to figure out how to synthesize a healthy version of Whip n' Chill. The partially hydrogenated fats are the unhealthiest components of the commercial version, followed by the fully hydrogenated (saturated) fats. Avoiding the preservatives, anti-caking agents, conditioners, etc. would be good too. My latest idea involves the use of coconut oil, which is very healthy, and whips fairly easy. Although coconut oil is a saturated / medium chain triglyceride, it is immediately metabolized in the liver, not stored in fat cells. I am not against using cream, but I think the taste and texture might be closer to the chemical version if I used coconut oil, as well as being healthier and more stable.

Anyway, the point of all of this was to point out that the modern, foodservice-packaged Whip N' Chill is not the same as the grocery store variety sold in years past, and it doesn't have that awesome texture of the original due to the lack of tapioca flour.

Hope that helps someone.

Sounds like angel delight to me. I'm sure your own homemade version will be much better than the substance from the packet.

We stood there and watched it for 15 minutes waiting for some sort of fruit or ingredient we recognized to be add, it never was.... just chemical mix after chemical mix.
Of course I am sure they picked the worst one they could find for the video, LOL.
I LOVE the Museum of Science and Industry. Ever since I was a tiny girl I've been enthralled by their exhibits and explanations of why and how things work.

I remember Whip and Chill. Nasty stuff. Wouldn't get close to it now. Besides, Chocolate Mousse is SO easy to make and not only better tasting, but it's actually real food! If you'd like my recipe (which comes from a real bistro in Paris), send me a pm.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

There's parts of a moose that are quite tough. We had really chewy moose burgers.
