on the band wagon....

-- By  teddyray in  brooklyn wis on Tue, 7 May 2013 at 00:13.

I have great-grandparents whom have said this drink is "just grand"! They tried to sell this in there bar that they opened in Wisconsin....It was out in the "boon-docks"..Everyone there has heard of it..but it was to "scary to try!" They were told it would cause people to go nuts....I am a young man and want to learn more about it! The net is very tight on the subject...Someone that has had first hand experience with this product would be the best to tell me what I want to know! What is the deal with this stuff?
