There’s no whiskey in small bottles of Fireball. Now the company is being sued | Category: General Source
I was wondering why it took me a few to start feeling something. I knew something was off because hard liquor can’t be sold in grocery stores in my state but at a state run store.
Remember everyone, the FDA is bought and paid for by 7-8 corporations that produce EVERYTHING THAT YOU EAT AND DRINK. They don’t care about your health or well being.
Do research on your food, even just a little will go a long way.
I too had always assumed they contained Whiskey. I feel cheated xD
Just showed a coworker this. She’s pissed now. She loves this shit.
The definition of whiskey is pretty well established, so you can just look at the alcohol percentage to see that Fireball isn’t whiskey…so whether or not it has actual whiskey in it seems overly critical. Test all the canned margaritas, I bet very few of them actually have agave based spirit in them. Grain or corn based ethanol is cheap and easy to acquire, for licensed companies, so it makes economic sense to use it for a beverage that is so ubiquitous.
My neighboor buys these and always brings them over for shots. They’ve never tasted quite right and I’ve noticed they don’t really have much of affect on me. Now I know why
Looks like some people are misunderstanding the article. Large bottles of fireball do contain whiskey. This lawsuit is specifically about the tiny bottles of fireball which are very easily confused with the larger ones. It’s very misleading, as they’re two different drinks.
So what’s the alcohol content then? It’s ridiculous the article doesn’t say.
The bottles never stated they did…
So they figured out it was different by reading the label and decided to sue. “Tell me you’re an idiot law suit troll without telling me you’re and idiot law suit troll”
There’s no whisky in the large bottles either. It’s cinnamon schnapps that’s lying about being whisky
Fireball is cinnamon schnapps. It used to be called Dr. McGillicuddy’s Cinnamon Schnapps. Sazerac bought it and rebranded it as Fireball.
So fireball actually sells two different versions of the small bottles. One is real cinnamon whiskey, they other is cinnamon malt liquor. The malt liquor ones do not say whiskey anywhere on the bottle. They make them so they can be sold at places that only have a wine and beer license.
Fireball will win this lawsuit.
Who is misled by this? They’re like 20% abv
