I found this creative, but the VA Dept of Alcoholic Beverage Control didn't think so.


Hopsicle

Sorry about the forced sponsor's short commercial message. Was the only quality video coverage I could find.

What say yall?

Adult treat? Sounds yummy to me, and restaurants do use beer and wine in other recipes.

If he packaged it the way they want?

Or could this push the ABC into making every single recipe follow the 123's of beverage control?

I say give the guy a break. I'd like to try a "Raspbeery" hopsicle, though those Jello shooters are disgusting. They taste like spiked Kool-Aid flavored phlegm.


hmmm....where's my old Popsicle mold.

I had a friend who managed to bypass the "no bottles or cans" rule that was put it into place at the innumerable outdoor festival in the New Orleans area.

She had one of those "Seal-a-Meal" contraptions, and the night before the festivities, she would patiently bag up Budweisers--and freeze them.

Icy Cold, and cheaper by the dozen too!

That kinda reminded me of her, with her good old-fashioned N'awlins ingenuity!

Alright, but seriously where would the lime go?

The State of California (I don't think was the ABC) declared Mike's Hard Lemonade taxable at a distilled, rather than malt beverage rate, even though it is, I think, only 9 per cent alcohol, and the Belgian's outdo that on a regular basis.

The real reason was to discourage younger folk from drinking it since, to the Liquor Board's mind, just as marijuana inevitably leads to shooting heroin, wine pops result in three-martini lunches.

Net result was, the price of a Mike's six pack went up by about three dollars and kids still drink it.

I absolutely do not encourage or support underage drinking, but sin tax has never stopped any one from sinning.

Just as syntax has never stopped any one from posting.

Best,  Jim

We have coffee ice cream and a soda called Cocaine. Why not a hopsicle?

Another addition to the excess of stupid and vain things.

Karen~ yep, she's a winner! I love innovation.

Susan~ Hmm, that may present a prob. No wait! I think it's in there. Maybe in the center like a Tootsie Pop! How many licks? haha.

Jim~ I have been introduced to Mike's Lemonade stand a few times. "wine pops result in three-martini lunches." Laugh. Anything's possible but I never was a martini gurl. Maybe the Appletini? Good points.

Ed~ We have soda called Cocaine? Or just Coke? Ha. Dunno. Hard to keep up anymore with all the new stuff out. Yeah, and then some.

Ess~ Come now dear Man. The world does not revolve around tea and crumpets. Some of us do Jack Daniels and cornbread on occasion, not to excess. Though one drink of the 'Tractor Gas' we have around here (moonshine) is considerably excess, and scary, as many know and lived to tell about it.

I've been hearing and even using the phrase "tea and crumpets" all of my life, and it just dawned on me that I didn't know what a "crumpet" was....A PANCAKE???

well I'll be damned...

some sheepish laughter from anothah suthan gal, Reggie.

Hi SB --  A Crumpet looks a little like a pancake that hasn't been flipped over.  It has the advantge over an English Muffin in that when toasted, it can hold more butter.

Untoasted, you can cover it with creme freche or jam, or both.

It's basically a flavorless chewy bread base for something else.

Just thought of an oxymoron:  "Scottish pastry."

Well, Coca Cola, in the beginning had cocaine in it, believe it or not. In the late 1800's, pretty much everything had crack in it, heh.

And "Cocaine" is an energy drink, not a soda, I got the two mixed up (I suppose they're two different things, lol).

I hear it burns the hell out of your throat, too. I wonder why? heh. I saw the maker James Kirby on another interview and he was asked to drink it. He could barely do it. He took a sip but when asked to drink more, he refused because his throat burned. Yeah, he's a real egghead. hahaha

~sigh~ I worked for Laidlaw school bus system one year. Some sin)geniously creative children were passing water and soda bottles around on the bus. Problem was, they were often filled with Vodka or other alcoholic beverage. That gig had been going on for quite some time despite the careful watchful eyes of drivers and aides. After they were "busted" some of them showed up with small containers of fresh fruit compote in lunch boxes. You guessed it...the fruit was often soaked in rum or some other tasty treat.

Beer...well, not my favorite beverage anyway. Never could stand the taste, no matter how much tomato juice ya put in it. It wouldn't taste any better on a stick. Some people on the other hand love it and would probably pay any amount, that they deemed within reason, to buy it.

Ha! Ed, that video is awesome.


I think his tactics are Grade A on the product.
The newslady is attacking him and he's so collected. Death threats! Over an energy drink's name of Cocaine. He has some major strong points: Creativity. Freedom of Speech. Parenting. Fair usage. Labeling. My gosh the guy is covering more issues with his product pitch and defense than anyone I've ever seen on something. He's a brain trust to the world of sales. Risky genius.

I'll be back to all bit laterz

PhaerieChild...red beers or iron mans are so freakin good...lol love those

I like beer...but the best ice ice cold is corona.squeeze a lime into it and watch it shoot down the bottle freezing like lightning...so cool...

Hey when I was a kid they sold California Coolers in 2 liter bottles! ( wine coolers)
I think those were the first wine coolers?? Not sure on that...but whoa baby, they were cheap and good. Not that I think under age drinking is ok. I'm just sayin, it happens...
