I once shot a Ziploc baggie full of solid Crisco (butter flavor) to see how much of a splat it would make. As it turns out, I got a small blob of molten plastic and a large cloud of blue smoke that smelled like french fries! Made me hungry!

it didn't detonate the crisco, lol.

It melted the bag, burned some crisco (hence the smoke and smell), and blew the rest away.

Try loading the ziploc with flower, it makes a realistic smoke effect when it hits8)
