A popular topping on an ice cream sundae can now lead to a DUI charge if alcohol conusmers are not not careful.
The Lawrence Journal reports that the product Whipahol is actually stronger than most wines and beers. The alcoholic whipped cream branded by the makers of Whipped Lightning can have a proof up to 36.5, but has a similar appearance and consistency similar to that of regular whipped cream.
Forbes calls the Whipahol product "Four Loko 2.0" because health and government officials have become concerned about the rising popularity of alcoholic whipped cream and fear that it can have a similar effect to the previously caffeinated Four Loko. The caffeinated alcoholic drink Four Loko was controversial among health officials earlier this year because of the FDA concerns over mixing caffeine with the alcoholic drink.
In Arizona, there are Phoenix DUI attorneys that would question whether alcoholic whipped cream products can lead to more DUI arrests. Perhaps people consuming Whipahol won't realize how impaired they actually are after having the topping on their favorite dessert. Because of the high proof of the product, people might quickly get themselves over the legal limit and think that they're still sober enough to drive.
Anybody that is arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence after consuming any alcoholic product should contact an Arizona DUI attorney to learn how they can fight their DUI charge.
