Well apparently it’s even been kicking around for awhile, like c.1974 here in ‘MURICA; -interestingly developed by General Foods.
-For what? Like on breakfast-cereals, ‘You know… -For Kids!’??
It’s also been on the market for 5+ years in other countries like Japan and the Netherlands.
Where people are not sufficiently crazy enough already. Yep.
There had been some speculation that the ATF had approved it, but that turned out to be inaccurate or just a mistake on their part.
It sounds bonkers, but I guess it’s just suspended in some kind of
gel-powder or something [ed:]-oh, it’s like a sugar-gel. And you have to keep the container sealed, lest the goodies evaporate.
-And as a few people have pointed-out, since it’s less-tasty & more about the material-properties, PA will probably only become fuel for fratboy stunts and YouTubeian “Hey Y’all! -WATCH THIS!”-Darwin Award fodder.
Oh well, Coming-Soon to the next Johnny Knoxville project…
