Suck on It

Powdered, airborne caffeine is the stuff of manic dreams

Getting your morning fix is losing its appeal.

The disaffected baristas, the rising coffee prices, the middle-aged middle manager ordering a half-caf doppio all-foam skim-soy's all too much.

You simply want to inhale your morning coffee and get on with your day.

Behold the AeroShot, a pocket-sized apparatus designed by mad Harvard scientist David Edwards, whose other inventions include breathable chocolate and a plant-powered air purifier.

In stores in Boston and New York this month and available online now, the lime-flavored AeroShot contains 100mg of caffeine — roughly a cup of coffee's worth — that you shoot into your mouth in powdered form.

Don't worry, you don't actually inhale it.

But Sen. Chuck "Spoilsport" Schumer has already fired off a letter to the FDA, calling the AeroShot a club drug that poses a risk to children and adolescents. (Sign us up? But seriously, kids, stick to sugar binges.)

At the very least, it's a surefire conversation starter with the Olivia Munn lookalike at the other end of the bar.

"Is that... a shotgun shell you're sucking on?"

We'll let you handle it from there.


Price: $3 each
