Someone decided that a less than 1 minute delay in getting a fix is too long. :astonished:

I’ve had a handle of Fireball on the bar for 5 years, can’t sell it even to underage drinkers…

P.S. it was gift, I think.

Love the useless inventions. My favorite are the COVID-era inventions like the Mask-Spenders

“You can’t beat the taste of alcohol and plastic.” [Roy Scheider – “2010: The Year We Make Contact”]

I got a mini bottle in my whiskey advent calendar last December. My reaction was “so I guess someone decided to make an alcoholic version of those nasty “Red Hots” candies?”

It kind of makes sense in this context though. An unnecessary whiskey for an unnecessary invention.

I was going to ask why someone would buy that rather than just cinnamon schnapps, but I got a bottle of that one time for a mixer, and I swear that between the color, texture and taste someone had literally melted red hots in vodka and sold it to me for $9.99, and I have had Fireball before and I can attest that the Hiram Walker quality control rejected bourbon and antifreeze do kind of take that edge off.

It’s whiskey in name only, and surely the bottom of the barrel at that…

I guarantee you that it has never been so much as in the same room with a barrel.

Good point, but I looked it up and they seem to always call them tanks.

I was this many years old when I learned that the MD in Mad Dog 2020 stands for Mogen David, and that “Mad Dog” is not any part of the official name of the product.

Ha, same happened to me. Once you get a bottle of that stuff it’s going to be on the shelf forever, can’t give it away.
