A cranky opinion for

The following is the opinion of a cranky old man with absolutely no expertise in the subject opined.  Opposing opinions are welcome,  but will be ignored.  As always, please, no name calling…that means you, you big stupid head!

I just read an article that powdered alcohol was recently approved for sale in the USA.  I had never before heard of powdered alcohol.  I know nothing about powdered alcohol.  What better subject to offer an opinion.

What are the possible benefits of powdered alcohol? 

1.     It is easy to sneak into places where alcohol is not allowed.

2.     It is easy for alcoholics to hide.

3.     It is easy to slip into your dates drink to get her drunk and compliant.

4.     You can take  it camping without taking up space and without worrying about broken bottles.

All of these benefits seem to me to also be negatives unless you are an alcoholic who is into date rape, or you are  a casual drinking camper.

What are the potential negatives of powdered alcohol?

1.    Children sprinkling it on their cereal.

2.    Kids snorting it to get high really quick.  (Proponents say it burns and people won’t do this. Yes.  Yes they will!)

3.    Kids using it rectally to get a really quick high. (Yes.  Yes they will!)

4.     If you actually enjoy a nice alcoholic beverage from time to time, how friggin good could this stuff taste when mixed with water?

Now I ask you, is powdered alcohol a good idea? 

1.    For the inventors and producers it is a very good idea. 

2.    For politicians that can play with all the tax money they can collect from the sale of powdered alcohol it is a good idea. 

3.    For casual drinking campers who don’t care one whit about taste or quality of their booze it is a good idea.

I didn’t invent this stuff.  I am not a politician.  I hate camping. 
I think this is a really bad idea.

The preceding was the opinion of a cranky old man and not necessarily that of management…Mrs. Cranky.


  1. Miss Mac told me about this yesterday and I have to say I agree with you. I can't see any positives in this and I think it's a really bad idea!

  2. I just heard about this on the news. Now that the media in decrying the negatives of this questionable product, kids will be sure to hear about it.

  3. I'll pass. I want my champagne right out of the bottle and in liquid form. This sounds gross. Like a Banquet dinner you put in the oven or microwave.

    Have a fabulous day Joe. ☺

    1. I agree. This sounds like the alcoholic's equivalent of a TV dinner!!

  4. This is one of the most immoral money makers on the open market. It's only purpose is to produce profit, at any cost.

  5. I too think it is a bad idea. Too hard to monitor it I think. At least you can still see the kids trying to hide the 40 ounce bottle of beer they are passing around at the local park; this would be way too easy to hide. Nope, don't like it.


  6. why bother mixing it with water. just pour it directly on the tongue like pixie sticks.

  7. It sounds nasty. I see no redeeming social value. FAIL!

  8. Yuck! And not a good idea, either.

  9. Somebody had way too much time on their hands. Sounds like an Edsel to me.

  10. Well this should go over big in high schools!.......what a crazy idea.

  11. Let me think...worse than concealed carry? Maybe? Maybe not? We are heading down the road of the Romans.

  12. It would be good for cooking I guess. There are some good recipes that call for beer or wine. Not sure it the alcohol would cook out with the power alcohol.

  13. I heard about this on the news the other day (while doing other stuff, so I didn't hear the whole report). I believe they said it would be up to the states to allow the sale of this stuff.

    It reminds me of instant coffee...and that really nobody drinks it any more.

  14. You folks over there in the land of dirty-water cocktails need to be on the lookout for people ripping you off by replacing your powdered alcohol with its dirty-water equivalent, DUST.

  15. I had never before heard of powdered alcohol either. Since I don't drink ( I haven't had a drink since 1977 when I had a stroke ( I was 27 years old ) and with my pills I decided not to drink and I'm sure glad that I don't but what the heck is this powered alcohol? There's enough stuff out there already for these young people to screw themselves up. Nutty isn't it? Have a great day. See ya.

  16. Is that the stuff they mix into cooled gelatin to make jello shots?
