It is still illegal to import Absinthe into the US :(

From Wikipedia :o

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Customs_and_Border_Protection), "The importation of Absinthe and any other liquors or liqueurs that contain Artemisia absinthium is prohibited."

In Ontario i know its legal, at least certain types (10 mg/kg thujone). I have always wanted to try some but never see it at any bar and it is near $80 a bottle. :eek:

I tried a can of "new" pomegranate fruitopia today, didn't like it all that much tbh, 100% pure is where its at :cool:. Never been a fan of any fruitopia for that matter and i heard the company has used questionable marketing tacticts and has engaged in unethical behaviors in the past, perhaps someone can fill me in a bit more.

My friends bought a bottle of absinthe when we were 16. I didn't try any then, but I've been warned to stay away from it, hah. I'll stick with my beer.

I tried a green apple slushie-type drink from a bubble tea place. It was alright, green apple is a good flavour, but I wish I'd been more adventurous and tried mango or cantoloupe.

Yesterday I had a Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte. It was so good. I've had one before (years ago), but never the version with soymilk until yesterday.
