For Now You’ll Still Have To Spike The Punch Bowl With A Flask

Palcohol is one of those products that might sound like a good idea at first blush.  Further thought may cause you to change your mind.  It’s freeze-dried alcohol.  It will be offered in six flavors, and the product is going through the approval process at the Alcohol Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.

The reason it attracted attention this week is that the Bureau issued approved labels for the product and then indicated the labels had been issued in error.  The company believes that everything should be resolved once some changes are made on the labels.

The potential for abuse of this product seems pretty high (it will be pretty easy to overserve, and drinking won’t be the only way to consume it), so I would not be surprised to see some jurisdictions attempt to bar sale of the product, even after it is completely approved by the Bureau.  Whenever that ends up happening.
