Unholy Alliance Of Coffee And Wine Unite In A Can

People like wine, I’ve heard it said. And people like coffee, I say to my morning cup of joe every day so it knows I appreciate it. But do we really want to mix our booze and our morning buzz, and in a can, no less?

After all, a lot of bad can happen to good things when you put them in into can form. If you’re feeling brave and confident that you can keep your stomach lining from exiting your body, just search for “turkey in a can” if you’ve never seen it.

DailyCoffeeNews.com brings the newest offering from Friends Fun Wine, which has been peddling 6% ABV “Fun Wine in a Can” for a while now, in its foray into the caffeine world with Cabernet Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Coffee Cappuccino.

Based on that naming style, shouldn’t it be Cabernet Wine Coffee Espresso and Chardonnay Wine Coffee Cappuccino? Though it’s unclear if there’s actually caffeine in the beverage, or just a coffee wine flavor. Which, yuck.

Anyway, these “easy-to-drink” combos feature things like the “rich flavor of fresh cabernet grapes, espresso coffee and a hint of chocolate,” and the chardonnay wine coffee wine coffee whatever sounds like a sugary booze dream, with “sweet, refreshing Chardonnay grapes with vanilla cappuccino coffee and smooth hints of chocolate.”

“We are proud to be the first-to-market with our Fun Wine In A Can, and look forward to introducing the new coffee varieties to our Fun-Loving Fans,” Friends Fun Wine CEO Joe Peleg said in a product announcement.
