If you enjoy the strong flavor and hallucinogenic effects of the anise-infused drink consumed by authors and artists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries then Archie McPhee Absinthe Gumballs may be right up your alley.

Although the gum does not boast that it will heighten artistic awakening or alter perception, it does promise that it tastes an awful lot like the stiff drink it is named after. The little green gumballs are flavored using anise, which is the main component in Absinthe, and come packed in a vintage-looking tin.

A mermaid-esque redhead graces the tin’s lid and is pictured blowing a massive bubble while green fairies dance around her head. While the gum may will be appealing to those who enjoy the booze’s flavor, it may not be the right choice for someone who is looking to have a mind altering experience while blowing bubbles.
