Gum that tastes like beer

Beer gum...enjoy the pleasure of a beer throughout the day...each stick contains the equivalent of 1 shot glass full of beer. When the flavor runs out, you just "open another stick of beer."

       Liquid center. Get some really powerful alcohol and when you start chewing, it mixes with the gum...

       Put the Scotch in the butterscotch

       Great idea!   

       I agree with Wax that Scotch-flavored gum would also be good.   

       I have the perfect answer as to what might be found in the center: ether. One thimble-full of ether is enough to get you roaring drunk.

       Could you put the pack of gum in a six-pack (of packs)? Oh-oh... and put the gum in little pressurized cans that make the characteristic sound when opened.

       I cant see this going on the market for one reason only selling it would it just tastes like beer or would you need some of the alchohol flavor I dont know how you make flavor without alchohol. But its worth I try. But back to selling it wouldnt it get out of hand if the Alchohol really was inside it?

       And here's another blast from the past by a one-hit-wonder.   

       [ccrider] joined us on 12/06/2000, posted this idea, and was never heard from again.

       Well not quite, but I can't believe somebody in this modern day and age knew this!   

       What [Vance] probably means is diethyl ether (CH3CH2-O-CH2CH3); once commonly used as the second safest known anesthetic (after pressurized N2O). It's isomerized ethanol, and only lasts ~30 minutes - and no one (that I've ever heard of) has gotten a hang-over from it. It was very popular with the Upper Classes as an inebriant during the Victorian Era - along with Chloroform (CCl3H) and Nitrous Oxide (N2O)...   

       It's extremely potent ... but I'm not sure if it's legal in the United States...

       From the Wikpedia entry on Diethyl Ether: "Today, ether is rarely used. The use of flammable ether waned as nonflammable anesthetic agents such as halothane became available. Additionally, ether had many undesirable side effects, such as postanesthetic nausea and vomiting."
