Swallowing: So 2011

coffee2.jpgWill liquid coffee go the way of the horse and buggy, handwritten letter and US economy? Perhaps: the Globe reports that a Cambridge based company called Breathable Foods plans to debut its first product, an inhalable form of coffee, in early 2012. A dose of AeroShots is breathed rather than sipped and will contain the same amount of caffeine as a regular cup of coffee, and by "regular" we mean non-decaf as well as the kind you need lips and a tongue to consume. The company also plans to release a followup called Le Whif, which is touted as calorie (and everything else)-free chocolate. Because seriously, who has time to swallow? [Boston Globe]
