Rebah Matheson, a friend on Facebook, recently sent me a picture of a display found at a Sams Club in Newport News, VA. The display is advertising Lt. Blenders Cocktails in a Bag. The below video describes the product.

Are there .guv EBT Cards for smokes and hookers too?
Margaritas are a basic food group, don’t you know. Come on people!
It is sad that this actually has to be pointed out to people. Liquid Margarita in a 32 ounce cup. One of the basic food groups.
Looks like there is no alcohol in the bag.
probably because it’s the mix minus the booze
Sodom and Gomorrah.
there’s no alcohol and it even requires water? that’s not really a cocktail.
A sign of the “end of the world as we know it”. EBT should be vouchers for potatoes, rice, vegetables, hamburger and milk. If you need soda, doritos, “cocktails in half in the bag”, get your lazy a$$ out and earn it yourself. But I know I am a filthy racist reactionary.
I know, I know. Whatever happened to accepting temporary assistance, motivating you to get a job?
All of us need to prepare for the day EBT cards stop working.
“Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes... The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!”
Earl Butz was right: “Loose shoes, tight *****, and a warm place to ****.”
We have the fattest poor people in history. A statement which speaks for itself.
probably because its the mix minus the booze
theres no alcohol and it even requires water? thats not really a cocktail.
I'm having an Animal House moment:
Bluto: "Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?"
Boone: "The Germans?"
Otter: "Shh! He's on a roll..."
I'm sitting back watching people freak out over this EBT approved item. Hey! There's no booze in it! Nobody's buying booze with an EBT card!
Lime coolaid in a new package for twice the price.
They can use their EBT cards to mail packages, too, at the Post Office.
I mentioned this to a young woman who just finished using the stand alone, self-serve kiosk...she just laughed a little. (probably a Benghazi Barry voter who will wonder why the country is in Civil War II soon. IDIOT.)
It’s Free Swipe Yo EBT (Clean)
Of course not -- the EBT benefits are exchanged for cash and that cash is used to buy the booze. I guess that makes it OK, huh?
How? Besides, I don't like this EBT business anyway, but I'd like to know exactly how one does that exchange, unless you have an unscrupulous grocer. They exist and have gotten in trouble for it, but they could just as easily find a way to sell the booze to the welfare queen anyway.
Welfare aid cards valid at casinosSource: LA Times article
State-issued debit cards work at some gaming floor ATMs.
Officials vow cutoff.
June 24, 2010|Jack Dolan
SACRAMENTO California welfare recipients are able to use state-issued debit cards to withdraw cash on gaming floors in more than half of the casinos in the state, a Los Angeles Times review of records found.
The cards, provided by the Department of Social Services to help recipients feed and clothe their families, work in automated teller machines at 32 of 58 tribal casinos and 47 of 90 state-licensed poker rooms, the review found.
There have been many stories posted over the past few years about EBT cards being used at Hawaiian and Caribbean vacation destinations. Fraud is rampant.
Depending on how long it was until the next welfare check was due, food stamps could easily be bought for 35 to 50 cents on the dollar anywhere in the general vicinity of any grocery store. The fraud is now just being done electronically rather than with paper stamps.
I hope this company goes TU. They deserve it! How dare they promote their product to EBT recipients!?
I am shocked that you find buying this kind of frivolous bullsh*t with EBT funds acceptable! Really!? You REALLY endorse this?
EBT, welfare, and all the rest need to be immediately terminated. This has gone on long enough.
Both of you think I approve of EBT, even though I SAID I don’t? Both of you can STFU and KMA while you’re at it. Learn to effing read. All I did was point out this product isn’t like buying alcohol while all you morons were jumping on this bandwagon claiming it is.
Yeah, I know it’s abused. Why do you think I don’t like it? The idea of having EBT cards is to “reduce stigma.” Well, I’m all for bring “stigma” back. I wish the cashier had to turn a flashing light on and call the manager for special approval every time some deadbeat tries to use food stamps.
Now go have a nice day.

I realize there are many teetotaling FReepers, but this is what's called a "mixer".
Have some FUN with a Cocktail in a Bag! Our cocktails are all-natural,
portable and easy to make. Simply add alcohol and water to the bag,
shake, and serve over ice or freeze the whole bag for a slushy treat! R
I never claimed it was like buying alcohol—I said it was frivolous! I stand behind my comment, as I reread your post and any plain reading seemed to support buying drink mixers with EBT as they are not themselves alcohol.
