Because sometimes trying to sneak a bottle of bourbon taped to your nuts into a sporting event still gets confiscated by security, now there's Palcohol, a powdered alcohol that's just been approved for sale in the US. That way security will just think it's fat sack of coke and call the police! It's just powdered alcohol, I swear -- I just didn't want to pay $16 for a cocktail! *getting handcuffed* My only crime is being thrifty!
What's worse than going to a concert, sporting event, etc. and having to pay $10, $15, $20 for a mixed drink with tax and tip. Are you kidding me?! Take Palcohol into the venue and enjoy a mixed drink for a fraction of the cost.
We've been talking about drinks so far. But we have found adding Palcohol to food is so much fun. Sprinkle Palcohol on almost any dish and give it an extra kick. Some of our favorites are the Kamikaze in guacamole, Rum on a BBQ sandwich, Cosmo on a salad and Vodka on eggs in the morning to start your day off right. Experiment. Palcohol is great on so many foods. Remember, you have to add Palcohol AFTER a dish is cooked as the alcohol will burn off if you cook with it...and that defeats the whole purpose.
So...can you snort it? Because this sounds like it could be dangerous. AND I LIKE DANGEROUS. I'm going to bury my face in a pile of this stuff like Tony Montana at the end of Scarface. "And then?" The same thing Tony did. "Shoot up your mansion?" After that. "Die?" Exactamundo! And then my ghost is going to sue the company. "For?" An afterlifetime supply! This might be my best idea so far.
UPDATE: Government says Palcohol was approved for sale in error, will not be on shelves (or up anybody's ass) soon.
Keep going for a shot of the questionable-looking packaging.
Thanks to Thaylor H, Ed and Mr. K., who prefer to get drunk the old fashioned way: in a bar surrounded by a bunch of a$$holes talking way too loud about nothing.
