Blog: Chris MercerSuck & Blow - the worst idea for an alcoholic drink of all time?

Chris Mercer | 19 January 2012

The UK's Portman Group has clattered US-based SAB Enterprises over its Suck & Blow alcoholic jelly tubes. 

I mean, really, what were they thinking? Portman basically said today (19 January) that Suck & Blow breaks nearly every rule in its book. It criticised the product for potentially attracting children with its "childish font", linking alcohol to sex (I'm not sure I understand that one...), and for encouraging "rapid drinking".

According to Portman, the product is a tube that opens at both ends and is designed for one person to blow half the contents into another person’s mouth and vice versa.

REALLY?
