Just when it seems they had perfected making just about every flavor of booze imaginable, one company has changed the game completely by delivering alcohol in powder form.
According to io9, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau officially approved seven different varieties of something called “”Palcohol.” You may be asking, “What is this ‘Palcohol?'” It a combination of the words “Powder” and “Alcohol,” and that pretty much describes the product as well… it’s powdered alcohol!
As with any new kind of thing people get wasted on, we can see a bunch of good and horribly bad applications of the product, which comes in flavors like Vodka, Margarita and Lemon Drop. Perhaps the best application we can think of is sneaking it into bars, concerts and anywhere else where booze is pricey. The worst would be idiots snorting it… and don’t tell us people aren’t going to try. If “butt-chugging” became a thing, you can bet your ass people will try to snort it. Palcohol anticipated this and strongly urge against snorting the product on their website, saying:
We have seen comments about goofballs wanting to snort it. Don’t do it! It is not a responsible or smart way to use the product. To take precautions against this action, we’ve added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.
See, dummies? They added stuff to it to make it hurt extra if you snort it. Just say no to snorting, but yes to Palcohol. According to USA Today, there was an oversight with the approval of the package labels. so it may take a minute to get all that straightened out. Hopefully, Palcohol will be on sale at a liquor store near you soon.
