Powdered Alcohol

American drinkers could find themselves sprinkling their favourite beverage rather than pouring it, as powdered alcohol brand 'Palcohol' is now fully approved by the US government.

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau this week signed off on seven versions of Palcohol, including Margarita and Cosmopolitan flavours, which will be made available in autumn of this year.

The company's website, which has been changed since approval from the TTB, pitched the product as a solution to the ever-escalating cost of liquid alcohol.

"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," the product's promotional material read.
Reportedly, Palcohol sales will be restricted to establishments licensed to sell liquor.

"Reportedly, Palcohol sales will be restricted to establishments licensed to sell liquor."

In other words, if that restriction holds, they will charge full price for liquid alcohol while giving out this. Just take your own pint, or fifth. If you can't figure out how to get it in, then don't drink... or be prepared to be ripped off. As if you aren't being already, between cheap mixers at premiums and even then it being watered down.

Bread and arena, I guess. Keeps empty minds from thinking.

Just dry and dehydrate alcohol.
It evaporates into the air.
This powdered alcohol has been a hoax for years, but this time the used slick stories to sell the hoax.

Nether the claimed FDA nor the BATF&E
have any thing or any mention of powdered alcohol or palcohol.
