Inhalable coffee headed for U.S. stores

CAMBRIDGE, Mass., March 11 (UPI) -- The Paris-based manufacturers of an inhalable coffee powder said the confection became available Thursday at stores in New York and Massachusetts.

Le Whif coffee, created by David Edwards, a Harvard University professor of biomedical engineering, and marketed by his Paris-based company LaboGroup, is being offered for sale at Dylan's Candy Bar in New York and Cardullo's Gourmet Shoppe in Cambridge, Mass., The Chicago Tribune reported.

LaboGroup, part of experimental art and design center Le Laboratoire, said it hopes to expand the product to other states during the next month.

A Dylan's Candy Bar worker said Le Whif packages will cost $3 each.

"Le Whif is a new delicious approach to eating by breathing," a Le Whif product brochure reads. "With Le Whif, we inhale food, like chocolate, into our mouths and taste it, without chewing, an experience of flavor without the calories."

What could possibly go wrong? :D

Is drinking it really that difficult?

Leave it to the French to come up with this stupidity. On the other hand it would probably go over big in the northeast with all their Manhattan liberal coffee houses.

That would clean out that white shit they snorted the night before.
