Buy Whipped Lightning in DC Area

miniped Nov 2, 2010 02:48 PM

Anyone know where I can buy Whipped Lightning (the whipahol/alcoholic whipped topping) in the DC area? Preferably in DC or NOVA. The retailer finder on the manufacture's web site doesn't seem to be working (I'm not receiving any email after submitting the request). Thanks.

      It must be around somewhere. There was a story about it on Fox 5 news last night.

        A liquor store on Kent Island has it...across from CVS

      I emailed them today and got this response very quickly:

      Please call Atlantic Wine & Spirits at 410-247-2600, they will be able to tell you the closest location to purchase product in MD.

        I know it is a hike, but they have had it at the Spirit Shoppe in Frederick for over a year.

          I've seen it at Village Pump in College Park.

          The best thing about Whipped Lightning is it's a floor wax AND a dessert topping!

            Not surprised it can be found in CP.

            I have a friend that brought it to a party I threw - I will ask her and and report back.

            That stuff is absolutely delicious. And dangerous.

              Saw her last night - she picked it up at the ABC store in Virginia, so I guess it's not really that hard to find. The one close to Ray's, to be specific.

              Saw this the other day at the Calvert-Woodley checkout...
