Good news, Bros! Discrete packs of powdered booze you can sprinkle into a bottle of Aquafina you are carrying on the subway are here to stay.
Last April, I brought you the news that Palcohol, the makers of powdered alcohol, won approval from the government to sell its product in the United States.
Well, like most everything with my life, I was wrong. Actually, I wasn’t wrong. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau was. They claimed they granted approval in error and almost immediately retracted it. Per the AP, the issue at hand was a matter of labeling, tiny technical bullshit that entire U.S. regulatory system is built upon.
Well, Palcohol fixed that problem, and now you can sprinkle booze into water and now you’re never more than a water fountain away from having a cocktail at your hands.
Palcohol founder Mark Phillips expects it to be ready for sale come this summer.
According to Motherboard, a few states (Alaska, Delaware, Louisiana, Michigan, South Carolina, and Vermont) have banned it, because those states are bitches. One of the worries, from these bitch states, is that it will be easy to sneak into venues where alcohol sales are restricted.
Phillips said on his blog, that nah, he’s not worried about that. “A package of Palcohol is 4″ x 6,” he wrote “almost five times bigger than a 50ml bottle of liquid alcohol so Palcohol is much harder to conceal.”
But that’s not true! It’s flat. It can go in your shoes and no one will notice! And they don’t make you take off your shoes before sporting events.
Until they do after we all abuse this, but for football next fall? Gonna be great, Bros.
Let’s get drunk.
