An aerosol spray can containing 21 shots of alcohol is now being sold in Europe for 20 euro ($26), according to a recent article on Eater. It is designed to get you momentarily drunk right away with supposedly no side effects. It delivers 0.075 milliliters of alcohol per dose, so it is ideal for people who want to get drunk only for a short time.
This product is also great for people uninterested in the act of drinking a cocktail or a shot, which often encompasses having to use the bathroom, dehydration, extra calories, etc. Designer Phillipe Starck and scientist David Edwards have introduced this alcohol spray called Wahh Quantum Sensations. These guys also introduced a chocolate spray called “Le Whif”.
Wahh Quantum Sensations poses a threat to teens looking for a quick fix, but the price may deter them. The article proposes that it is unlikely the product will become available in America because we recently banned the sale of the caffeine spray AeroShots. So, thankfully this will not be an issue for American teens, but getting drunk from this household item will.
I would not buy this product, although if someone had a can I would try it just to see what it was like. I understand the benefits of it, because I too hate feeling thirsty after having a couple of drinks. The only selling point for me is the supposed lack of side effects attributed to normal alcoholic beverages.
Would you try this? What about the chocolate or caffeine sprays?
