    It would doubt it, becuz you cant eat the whip cream without putting it on something which then will make it one food..

    just as an agav I dont think there is anything really edible in whipped cream…its chemicals sugar and oil..(sorry..that has nothing to do with purim…)

    cshapiro- Sorry to barge in here but I thought I’d point out that the mitzva of shaloch manos is to give 2 servings of food not 2 types of food which is a wide held misunderstanding. So, if you give enough for 2 portions of waffles then you’re set!

    Because I had weight loss surgery and most of my friends know it, I plan on buying a few dozen dunkin donut boxes and putting in a small bottle of water, small container of tuna or egg salad, a challah roll and a small bag of baby carrots with a napkin, knife fork and straw.

    One year I dressed my kids as stewardess and prepared a shalach manos tray that resembled an airline meal.

    Dress up like IRS agents and walk into people’s houses and take their’s. Find the most clever one and regift it as your own.

    Some people appreciate getting wholesome things they serve at a meal, like the Purim seuda (and I don’t mean for dessert).

    For example, among those who have their seuda late in the day and are busy delivering and cooking in the morning, a non-junk food lunch for the kids is a welcome relief.

    One year someone gave me a muffin and choco milk at breakfast time.

    SUPER CONVENIENT!

    For several years, we delivered shalach manos first thing in the morning -homemade granola and rice dream (milk). It became the Purim breakfast of our friends and family…

    Dress up your kids as babies and give baby jars, bottles, mashed banana. This is the easiest costume to make if your child is under a year old.
