Fireball, now in a more portable format.

While so much of St. Patrick’s Day is rightly focused on Irish-themed alcohol, it’s worth noting that the holiday dedicated to our misguided celebration of Irish culture (notice how nobody every spends March 17 inside with a copy of Ulysses) also can involve foods like themed pastas and shakes. I say this mainly because you’re going to want to eat something on St. Patty’s, since Guinness doesn’t actually count as a meal.

But what if there was a way to eat something green and booze it up at the same time? As the luck of the Irish would have it, there sure is. That’s because you can get your hands on some green, Fireball Whiskey-laced gummy bears from Vine Gelee’s Etsy shop.

You heard that right: Fireball is the first of the four ingredients (joined by cane sugar, edible green and gold glitter, and gelatin) in this delightful little package that’s sure to get the party started if you’re the kind of person who doesn’t mind— or maybe even enjoys—drinking/eating intensely cinnamon-flavored whiskey.

Each order is ready to ship in 3-5 days from Denver, meaning if you hurry up and get on it RIGHT NOW, you still have a chance to get your hands on these things in time for the St. Patrick’s Day. Or you can use them to toast the first day of spring, or clandestinely get a buzz in front of your grandparents at Easter dinner. And if you’re on the fence about buying these things, it’s worth pointing out that Vine Gelee boasts an average of five stars based on 110 shop reviews. 

So why stop consuming alcohol between stops on that St. Patrick’s Day bar crawl? With these Fireball gummies, you can make bad decisions wherever it’s legal to eat snacks. And that is definitely the kind of thing that Saint Patrick himself would maybe, potentially think about supporting if he were alive today.
