This looks like a revived old post. I find Whip 'n Chill available at Amazon.

Wow! Someone managed to once again resurrect a 12-year old thread.

And I've STILL never heard of this product.

I went back to the very first post. Great reading. I was surprised at how many new readers were posting for the first time, yet you don't see them here today.

All those new convenience foods of the 50's and 60's were not so convenient if they were going to be fed to the garbage pail.

I think we were suckers for the manufactured foods of the fifties in Britain because:
1. many originated from the USA and therefore were incredibly glamorous. (Yes, really!)

2. people had got used to food being a problem and boring during 15 years of rationing.

These foods were much in demand not only for convenience but because they were hyped as "good" for the family and the housewife was pressured by brightly coloured, "perfect family" advertising into thinking that using them showed that she loved her family and was looking after them properly.

Do any of the Brits round here remember "Vesta" freeze-dried curries, chow mein and paella in the '60s? IIRC you just added boiling water. Supposed to be a treat but enough to put anyone off foreign foods for life!

My mum used to make a "whipped topping" from evaporated milk, lemon juice, and powdered sugar. It was really quite nice. When I tasted real whipped cream, I found it too rich. (Not any more.)

Sounds like mid century marketing here too!

Most of our infomercials (half hour long shows selling one product) are often hosted by a Brit or an Aussie, I guess that some find people from those places more informed, more reliable or something, not exactly sure.

My mom made a "cheesecake" that one ingredient was whipped evaporated milk. Calling this dessert a cheesecake was a stretch, but I loved it as a kid. I might have to make it sometime for nostalgia's sake.

No, it is not the single packets like we used to get, it is a 15 ounce bulk package that makes several servings. It is still made, but only in the bulk size.
