Batter Blaster

Does that title grab you? Maybe the real thing will appeal more:


This product just makes me laugh, ’cause ya know pancakes and waffles from a mix are just soooo hard to make. Is a new trend forming? Can we soon expect aerosol foods of all types in addition to cheese and whipped cream?

I don’t believe for a moment the claim that this product is organic. I’ll go out on a limb and suggest that even while the food ingredients may be wholesome, aerosol delivery using a chemical propellant inevitably alters the food’s make-up. And although aerosol delivery is becoming commonplace in the medical field, didn’t we already learn that the most common aerosol propellant prior to the 1980s was environmentally damaging? Alternatives to CFC propellants are claimed to be “less damaging,” whatever that means. I’d counter than a mixing bowl and a spoon is undoubtedly the least damaging.

It might also come as a surprise (or not, depending on your cynicism) that there is a journal devoted to promoting aerosols. And even more surprising, what’s with the special offer to fans of the John Tesh Radio Show? Never mind, I don’t want to know.

  1. A journal devoted to aerosols? Have you seen it? If it’s skinny, printed on translucent paper, and takes a serious approach, it could be a sister publication to the trade magazines where long ago I tried my hand as “staff writer.”

    The propellant is CO2, the same stuff we exhale and that makes pop fizzy, and no pesticides or artificial fertilizers were used in its production by Mother Nature. ;) So organic Batter Blaster is.. and not only that it’s tasty.

    I’ll have to take your word for it, Ferd, because I’m not trying this stuff.

    I don’t know nutt’n ’bout squirt’n no batter outta can!

    Alls I know, is booze, Uncle Jemimah’s Sour Mash to be precise…

    Batter Blaster busts Guinness World Record with 76,382 pancakes cooked and served in an eight hour period. See the TV coverage:

      The quintessential appeal to quantity (if not quality). I still haven’t tasted the stuff. So HungryJack, can you tell me what the propellant is? I’m curious if it’s as harmless and tasteless as CO2.
