Nitrous Oxide Cartridges

By datura - 5 June 2008 49

Hi everyone.

I was just about to make some scones but I realised I had run out of the cartridges or bulbs for my whipped cream dispenser but for some reason I haven’t been able to find them in shops within the ACT. So could someone please tell me what shops sell these cartridges. It’s an emergency. These scones cannot be consumed without whipped cream.


What’s Your opinion?

I propose Datura submit future stories on either “where can I buy a reliable herb grinder?” or “I have lost my bong buddy, cordial bottle, plastic bucket, and roughly an ounce of weed. Can anybody share?”

I don’t think anyone here really believes datura was actually making scones or whip cream, I-filed.

Datura… yes, obviously after a high
Try the homewares shop next to the civic fountain, saw a skater there one day who’d just purchased one. And boy he was happy.

Datura? The drug name says it all. Datura is after the ‘bubble effect’ peoples, nothing to do with the cream!

have you tried to make whipped cream with a whisk?? Takes forever and makes for a sore arm!

Egg beater and a whisk as tickboom said. It is cheaper and they wont give you a headache or cause breathing difficulties. Less chance of brain damage too.

Oh, screw it.

Cream chargers CANNOT be found in Woolworths or Coles. You’ll need to go to IGAs or some Supabarns. They live in/near the cookery bits and pieces.

Otherwise, try PWS or AC&R in Fyshwick.

If you’re really, really keen, go to

Lastly, DON’T buy Soda ones from a brewery supply. Soda bulbs (CO2) do not make whipped cream. You need to use cream chargers to make whipped cream, because they contain nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide dissolves in fat, carbon dioxide does not.

Looks like you can order them online from

360 bulbs for $190.00, that’s if you REALLY want your cream to be whipped.

Thankyou for bringing up this hard-hitting issue.

The reason they aren’t available anymore is because of all the teenage degenerates using them for inhaling purposes. Laughing gas, bulbies, nitros, whatever you wanna call em. OK maybe I did a few of em in my time but only to impress chicks at parties.

Not posting useful information here is the most difficult thing I have had to do all day.

Have you tried using an egg-beater or a whisk? Perhaps that would have involved less effort and time than posting an inquiry on here.

But then again perhaps egg-beaters and whisks won’t help you in what you actually want to use the bulbs for.

Nitrous Oxide is used for more than just exploding things, people.

Searching for Nitrous Oxide initiated by someone calling themselves Datura (as in Jimson Weed).

‘Soda’ bulbs are becoming increasingly hard to find. I managed to track some down at Woolies in Queanbeyan for my cream dispenser. Also I don’t remember them contain nitrous oxide, i thought they were a different gas.

They are hard to get for two reasons 1. they are hardly used anymore, and 2. they make good explosives (will destroy a letterbox) if combined with several other common items, and are therefore hard to get so that the kiddies don’t get them.

Brew Your Own At Home in Kambah. They sell them for dispensing creamy widget-style beer through mini-keg systems.
