Route 9 – After years of complete dominance, Allen’s Coffee Brandy has been unseated from its throne atop Maine’s annual booze bottle roadside litter statistics.
Fireball, the cinnamon flavored whiskey liqueur, has finally surpassed Allen’s as the booze bottle most likely to be picked up in Maine’s ditches.
“I love the stuff,” reports Cynthia Anderson of East Millinocket. “Allen’s got me through quite a few parties in high school but trouble is, you can’t get it in nips.”
Mainers statewide report the convenience of Fireball nips makes it ideal for “tootin around the horn.”
One Rockland man showed us how many nips he could fit into the center console of his truck.
“Load it right up guy, and you’re good to go. That’s about a Saturday night right there,” he said.
The small size of Fireball nips makes them easier to throw, whether it be from the window of a moving vehicle, parked at Rite-Aid, or at a high school parking lot before, during and after a basketball game.
One of the biggest factors leading to Fireball’s new status as Maine’s number one most littered bottle is its cinnamon flavoring.
“My girlfriend got out of an OUI because of it. Have one just as you’re getting pulled over and it makes your breath right fresh,” Anderson said.
