Cigarettes in a Bottle

I recently saw a shopping cart full of Nic Lite on sale in a grocery store. From what I can remember, the FDA questioned it in 2006, saying that unlike other smoking cessation aids sold behind the counter, this was incorrectly being marketed as a dietary supplement in the grocery store. Regulations aside, it appears to be back on the shelves. The need for aids like these is real (look at Nicorette‘s success), and on some levels it makes sense. Yet it seems so counter-intuitive to me to add nicotine to something edible. When I asked friends who had quit what they thought, their responses included “sounds great conceptually … but also revolting” and “does it taste like bong water?”

Somehow the delivery mechanisms of the patch, gum and inhaler are more acceptable, while a nicotine food just feels wrong. Oh, and if you’re wondering what it tastes like, what came to mind for me was lemony gunpowder. More pictures after the jump. –Kat

This is supposed to be equivalent to 2 cigarettes
