Another Newish Way to Consume Alcohol
Maybe not all that newish. In case you already find the alcohol inhaler to be passe', you could try the commercial version of that old homemade standby, jello shots. Wet Willy's Edible Cocktails have been available for a year now in California through Impact Distribution of San Francisco. The Edible Cocktails are wine-based gelatin snacks, containing 12 percent alcohol. Impact previously distributed Zipper shots, which are a similar product based on hard liquor (and presumably containing higher alcohol levels). Anti-alcohol-abuse groups are concerned that the snacks might appeal to children, while the wine-based snacks are available in more venues then were those based on hard liquors. The Ventura County Star (registration required) has the story.
