Along with being a hitmaker, Cardi B is a marketing genius. What can’t this New York rhymer do?
Cardi B’s alcoholic-infused Whipshots hit a million sales this past October and is only expected to grow. Her holiday-themed whip cream shots have been trending all over social media recently, on par with the upcoming holiday.
The rapper tweeted earlier this week to share her excitement about fans’ response to the sweet treat, writing, “Seeing people buy my product makes me wanna cry….Thank you for supporting WHIPSHOTS!”

In December 2021, the “Hot Sh*t” rapper debuted the boozy dessert at Art Basel in Miami. Initially, only three flavors were available, including vanilla, caramel, and mocha. However, in light of the holiday season, the rapper decided to release a peppermint flavor this past November.
Cardi told Billboard last year that she’s not much of a “hardcore liquor-drinking person,” and her products offered her fans a sweet and sexy twist on an old classic. I mean, who doesn’t like whipped cream?
“It’s going to be a party in every can,” she said.
Cardi B is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Warner Music Group.
