We all still love getting drunk but HOW we're getting drunk is changing. Last year, wine drinking in the U.S. went down by almost 1%. That's the first time in 25 YEARS that wine drinking went down, not up. Beer drinking went down for the fourth straight year, dropping 2.3%.
But overall, we drank MORE last year than we did in 2018, and spent more on booze. So what replaced beer and wine?
Hard liquor and hard seltzers.
The "big five" liquors whiskey, vodka, rum, tequila, and gin were up a total of 2.3% last year. And hard seltzers went up almost 50% so yeah, there's where all your wine and beer drinkers went right there.

McDonald's Is Now Selling "Adult Cream Pies" in Japan
I'm not even gonna try to make a joke about this, because I'll just get in trouble. McDonald's is selling a new menu item in Japan. And the translation in English is NOT safe for work. They're called "Adult Cream Pies."
In Japanese, the name is, "Otona No Cream Pie." And "otona no" literally means "adult" in English. It doesn't sound dirty over there though, because it's a term normally used to describe sweet foods that aren't TOO sweet. They have a different word for adult entertainment stuff. So only English speakers think it's funny. In the new ad, a young Japanese woman asks an older lady if Adult Cream Pies are, quote, "really delicious." And she responds by saying, "If you eat it once, you'll be filled."
They come in two different flavors: Belgian Chocolate and Sweet Cheese.
