Can This Be The End Of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey?

I don’t know if you follow the news about every little thing that goes on in the world. But, have you heard that some parts of the United Kingdom have pulled Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey from the shelves of stores? Now you may be asking yourself why, and we will be getting to that a little bit latter on in the article. So, stick around for a little while and we be talking about more on this subject. This may be causing some concern here in the United States as well. Forcing the food and drug administration to take a closer look at why the UK has decided to pull this favorite whiskey of a lot of people from the shelves. I for one am hoping that the whiskey does not end up getting pulled from the stores here in the US. I just recently discovered how good this whiskey is in cola as a mixed drink. Can this be the end of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey? I sure hope not.

Why Is It Going Away?Last Call:

I am not saying that this popular whiskey is going to disappear from liquor stores here in the United States. With a few parts of the United Kingdom removing the product from its stores, may cause the FDA to take a closer look at why the UK did remove it from sales.

So, why exactly did the UK remove this much liked whiskey from being sold? well, they found that the product contained an ingredient that is commonly found in antifreeze. Ethelyn Glycol. I know, that sounds bad, but, this ingredient is in a lot of things other than coolant for our cars.

In small quantities, it is not harmful when ingested. The amount of the ingredient that is in Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey is so minuscule that you have no reason to be afraid of drinking it. I myself just had a drink with it on this past Thursday, and I feel 100% fine. Granted that I am not having a bunch of drinks of this liquor, Like I said small amounts will not harm you.

Don’t Be Afraid:Fear:

I bet, that if you take a look at some more popular products on the market, you will fin some funky ingredients in them as well. We are talking about items that you use on a day to day basis. Go ahead, I dare you to take a look at some every day products in your home that you use on a daily basis. Look at the ingredients that are in the deodorant that you use every morning. Some of them contain aluminum.

Did I shock you with that one? Are you going to stop using deodorant now, and go around stinking all day? I certainly am not going to stop using it. and why should I? For the same reason that I am not going to stop drinking Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey. As long as they keep it on the shelf, I will continue to buy, ans consume the product.

Before I forget to mention it, if you use any of the links in this post, and purchase this fantastic whiskey before they decide to get rid of it, you can save 17% off the regular price. Just my way of trying to help you save some money, What do you think of that my friends? I am more than happy to help you save money.

Live Your Life:Life To It's Fullest

Sorry, but you can go through life worrying about what might kill you. You can walk out your front door this morning and be shot down. Or perhaps, god forbid you end up in a car accident on the way to work or on the way home from work. Maybe you slip in the shower and hit your head on the water spicket. No, I am not wishing ill will on you, all I am saying is that anything can happen at any time.

If we spend our lives thinking of what could happen to us, we never end up leaving the house. Who wants to live like that? I certainly do not, do you? Life gave me a second chance a few years back.

When I was at the young age of 37 I ended up having a heart attack, the widow maker is what the doctors said. Today I am 53 years young. So, I know a thing about wanting to live, and this was not my first brush with death. The first time was on the USS Midway, I got blown by the exhaust of an F18 fighter jet. If it were’nt for an aircraft maintenance person that was on the fantail of the ship who reached out and grabbed me by my float-coat, I would have been shark food. Thank God he was there at that time.

Stop worrying:despair:

 

you can go through life wondering what will kill you, because we have no idea when our time here on earth is going to end. This is why I say live life to it’s fullest. Stop worrying about every little thing that can go wrong. Go get out there and have some fun. Take a trip, go see some friends or family members.

The country is starting to open up a little bit here and there. We have a vaccine now, did you get your yet? I myself, my wife as well as my son who lives with us went and got our shots this past Thursday. The sooner everyone gets vaccinated, the sooner we can all get back to a more normal life.

I do not know what a normal life is going to look like after two years of being quarintened, but they say that the country is on the brink of an economic recovery, with more jobs being available, and less travel restrictions to follow. I don’t know about you, but all of this sounds pretty darn good to me. How does it sound to you? Can you wait for things to get back to normal?

Be Safe:Safety First:

It has been an uphill battle for just about everyone in the world lately, even though we have vaccines now, now is not the time to start going downhill. Do you want end up right back at square one, like we were last year? Yes go out and get a vaccine, but, please remember to continue to wear a mask when you are in public.

No matter how safe you think a place is, there is always the possibility that someone has not gotten their vaccine shot, and can pass the virus on to you. The vaccine does not make you ten feet tall and bullet proof. That’s what the whiskey is for. Can this be the end of Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey? I do not have the answer to that question at this moment. I will let you know the moment that I find out.

Remember to drink responsibly, and never drink and drive. The life you save may very well be your own. Sincerely: John D. Have a blessed day my friends.
