Wumpa Whip is a beverage that is derived from Wumpa fruit. It serves as an energy drink to the consumer which makes them go into a hyperactive state and see things with a strange bright glow, suggesting it is high in sugar content derived from the Wumpa Fruit itself. It is Crash's favorite drink as he is seen constantly consuming the drink throughout Tag Team Racing.
Crash Tag Team Racing
In Crash Tag Team Racing Wumpa Whip serves a purpose throughout the entire game. If the player collects Wumpa Whip and then breaks some crates, it doubles the amount of Wumpa Coins they collect until it's timer runs out. It also is a vital clue that leads Crash and friends to finding the culprit of the theft of Von Clutch's Black Heart Power Gem. They at first suspect Crash of stealing the Black Gem due to his fondness of the drink, but their obliviousness causes the true culprit, Willy Wumps Cheeks to confess out of frustration and flee. Once Crash catches up to Willy in Astro Land, Cortex blasts him with a laser wave that disintegrates him into a puddle of Wumpa Whip.
Crash of the Titans
In the DS version of Crash of the Titans, Wumpa Whip serves as a health item for Crash due to the game being the first "beat em up" platformer. Once grabbed, it will replenish a small amount of Crash's health.

- Willy Wumpa Cheeks is the sole creator of Wumpa Whip, which he extracts from his body with his valve-like nose. How it is later obtained in 'Crash of the Titans' is unknown.
- It is has been said that Crash is the only consumer of Wumpa Whip.
- In the cutscene "To The Rocket!" Von Clutch stated "Who drinks Wumpa Whip anyway?" which implies it's probably not safe to drink.
- On the other hand, it could possibly mean that it's not a very tasty drink to many people, including Nina Cortex, who claims both the drink and Wumpa Fruit are "gross."
- It could be simply too high in sugar for most people to enjoy, as when it is consumed by Crash, he goes into a hyperactive and narcotic state where everything glows and becomes faster around him.
- Cortex gives Crash a Power Crystal he doesn't want because he found it covered in Wumpa Whip.
