With that said, lets move on. This is a reaction that uses non-dairy coffee creamer. The creamer is not combustable when sitting in the jar. Why not? It does not have the correct ratio of oxygen to ignite. When poured over a flame, it mixes with the oxygen in the air and combusts.
I am not yet sure of the chemical formula for the reaction, I don't have access to the coffee creamer jar so I can't see what it is made up of (threw it out at my friends house), but I will try to find out.  The highest flame we got was about 10 feet high. You can download a video of it below.
