Okay, the food-flavored-foods were funny for a while. There were the crazy-flavored jelly beans and the coffee creamers that tasted like Girl Scout cookies or whatever. Even the vodka thing was enjoyable for a bit. Bacon? Hey, everybody loves bacon. Doughnuts?! I thought you’d never ask! But I don’t even like butter on my popcorn. Why in the name of all that is wholesome and delicious would a company make a buttered popcorn flavor of vodka?! Stop the madness!
I guess it doesn’t help that I pretty much went on a health kick post college and never looked back. The search for simple foods of humble origins and natural ingredients has been sort of a daily pursuit for me for long enough now that this product is just frustrating. I’m probably overreacting but I’m on the Internet a lot and I see a lot of ploys to create niche fan-bases and siphon money from their pockets. Fine, commerce, it’s great. But I find this — and feel free to counterpoint — I find this a little insulting. Like, what mixers would you put in there? Coke? So you can pretend you’re getting drunk at the movies? So confused. Or like, what’s next — mac n’cheese? Chicken-fried steak? Big Mac? What do you think?
If you’re truly adventurous you can buy it here.
Lovelies, would you ever order a drink made with this stuff? Has this officially crossed a line?
