About twenty years ago, I was at JFK airport waiting on a flight to Puerto Rico when I bought a bottle of water from a concession stand.
I took a swig of it and it tasted like it came out of a sewer. Thats when I noticed the brand. It was called Nica-water and when I read the label it was water infused with nicotine, designed for smokers to get their buzz while not smoking. I'm pretty sure it never caught on, as I have not seen it in years.



This made me curious. I never heard of it before.

Apparantly it was banned (in the U.S.) in 2002:

But, yeah that does not sound appealing to me.
