        Be careful! Cream chargers are NOT the same as the chargers for soda siphons, and soda chargers make nasty-tasting whipped cream.

          Ur right. one is Carbon Dioxide (for soda water) the other is Nitrogen.

            Whip-its with CO2 are significantly less fun... but the burps are ground-shaking!

              That's nitrous oxide in the whipped cream chargers.

            Ain't that the truth! As I found out the hard way. Uugh! There seems to to be many good deals on line. A couple of dist. even advertise 'Discreet Shipping'.

            if ya just need a couple you could hit up your local StarBucks Barista (or independent coffee-cafe).

              i worked at starbucks for a short time and they were super tight on the nitrous inventory-the chargers could only be accessed by supervisors and we werent allowed to sell them. maybe an independent would be easier
