Dear People Who Write/Say “Whip Cream”

Dear People Who Write/Say “Whip Cream,”

It may come as a shock to hear that you are wrong.  The term, friends, is “whipped cream.”  This substance is named in such a way as to describe its very essence.  You see, “whipped cream” is heavy cream that has had air beaten or whipped into it.  It is cream that has been whipped, hence the name.  “Whip cream” is a mondegreen at best and a horrendous abuse of the English language at worst.

Please refrain from using the term “whip cream” any more.  It doesn’t make any sense.

Sincerely,

Chelsea
