Fun story and great video.

A student at University of Missouri in Columbia has created “Pub Corn,” alcohol-flavored popcorn.

“I soaked the kernels in whiskey,” Cary Silverman said. “That didn’t work. I tried injecting it with a syringe. I poked my finger a lot, but it didn’t work.”

Silverman didn’t give up, and he finally came up with non-alcoholic coatings that taste like beer, piña colada and Irish Cream.

Silverman said his main buyers have been pregnant women and truck drivers. He said they’re looking for the taste of alcohol, but can’t drink the real stuff.

Silverman has been approached by producers for Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres and Martha Stewart, all of whom would like to have Silverman on their shows. Oprah asked for the tequila-flavored popcorn.
