Cool Whip

Cool Whip was introduced in 1967 and was invented by William A. Mitchell, a food chemist at General Foods Corporation, who was trying to create a whipped cream-like product that could be frozen and kept in the refrigerator in the home

Cool Whip is generally considered non-dairy because it does not contain cream, milk or lactose. It does, however, contain casein, a milk derivative

Cool Whip now comes in an aerosol spray, like traditional whipped cream, so consumers can easily top their ice cream and desserts

This whipped-cream substitute is cheaper than the real thing, keeps longer in a resealable container, requires no whipping and has fewer calories. Within three months, it was at the top of the whipped-topping market.
