Inhaling Powdered Caffeine Is A Thing
We've never advocated snorting substances. Or inhaling glue. Anything like that scares us, especially after that memorable "huffing" episode of 7th Heaven
. But, we're not going to lie, we're not entirely opposed to addiction. No need for a dealer (or an intervention). Our fix comes in the form of a $6.75 Skinny Caramel Macchiato. Kinda puts a cramp in our New Year's resolution to give our credit card a rest
Enter, the very legal AeroShot
, a very, err, buzzy product from Harvard scientist David Edwards. Available in Boston and NYC in eight days, each $3 "shot" from the device, about the size of a lipstick, contains 100 mg of powdered caffeine and a mix of B vitamins, the same amount of the good stuff that's in a large cup of coffee
. "Put the...end between your lips and gently puff into your mouth," exhorts AreoShot's web site. Kinda sounds like that pusher from your high school, right? (Areoshot
