Beer duck

Because that beer is naked.

For many drinks, there is a tradition of putting things into the drink as a garnish or visual augmentation. An olive, for example, or a paper umbrella, or a bit of cut lemon.

A mug of beer, however, is traditionally unadorned except possibly for a head. It is lonely looking, that flat expanse of tan.

BUNGCO knew what to do. We proudly introduce Beer Ducks! The original beer ducks were actually small rubber ducks, intended to float merrily atop the beer. This they did. Many were eaten, with mixed results.

The second iteration made these ducks out of pretzel flour, with glazed bottomsides and a delightful mustard duck color (and flavor!). Now go ahead and eat that duck! Have some more if you like. Keep one in your beer at all times. If they stay in too long you are not drinking fast enough but no matter - the beer ducks are also good soggy.

At a fancy party someone from BUNGCO crashed we are told that these ducks were glorified as hors-doevres caddies, bearing on their duckly little backs bits of cheese, prosciutto and pickled egg.

We do miss the muffled quacking as persons drunkenly gnawed on the old rubber ones. Maybe for version 3...

       This is probably the best idea ever. I know there's relativity and penicillin, but still.

       This seems like a good idea. [+]

       Mustard flavour? No strawberry, dill, or mince?

       I was thinking a fish would be more fitting. If you could get goldfish crackers to be neutrally buoyant, perhaps, all of your fishing failures could end in drunken success.

       Great idea although the name might be a source of some confusion during bar fights, as in 'Beer! Duck!'

       + what a delightful idea!! Although there is a beer that people put lemons into...I'm not a beer drinker, but would have one just to put these in!! Beerduckin
