So, is it the chefs, the vodka makers, or the marketers who think we're all a bunch of big, stupid idiots. The latest booze, fad, concoction, whatever, is cupcake-flavored vodka. The hell?
Just because cupcakes are this crazy fad (soon to be replaced by pies, FYI. Sorry, the truth hurts) and vodka drinks are popular, and both are delicious, doesn't mean they go well together! Not even a little.
This reminds me of something I would have done when I was 5 -- take a bunch of delicious stuff and mashed it together. Ooh, look, Doritos! Hey, marshmallows! And a dollop of chocolate syrup! Voila! Barf.
Actually, the thing that bums me out the most about this marriage of food and drink is that the makers got it backwards. It should have been vodka-flavored cupcakes.
Well, let me clarify. Not necessarily vodka-flavored, but vodka-injected cupcakes. They would have all the benefits of cupcakes (decadence, deliciousness), and they would also get you hammered. Awesome, right? It could take the flavors of the cupcake vodkas -- chiffon, frosting, original, and devil's food -- and just turn them into real cupcakes. With vodka inside. Boom, you're welcome.
I mean, that would be something original, right? It seems like every day there's a new drink or vodka coming out -- we've all heard of the other very poorly executed vodka, Bacon Vodka. Cupcake vodka is not much different. Well, flavor-wise I'd imagine it is, but concept-wise -- eh, you get what I'm saying.
I just really wish that peeps would stop trying to take advantage of peeps now that everybody and their grandmother are a foodie. Yes, people are really into food these days, but that doesn't make us idiots. In fact, it should do the opposite -- we are all now schooled in the art of num-num, so we should know that vodka+cupcake flavor=bad.
I shall not be drinking the new cupcake vodka. However, if I had one too many of my famous vodka cupcakes, who knows what I'll do?
What do you think of cupcake vodka?
