Training Hooch

Sure, I grew up eating candy cigarettes and chewing gum cigars, and I didn't end up a smoker, but Disney's new Partyfizz, "a fizzy juice drink aimed at the massive children's party market" seems like a bad idea. Especially since the packaging -- green bottle, foil top, presumably a big-eared mouse somewhere on the label -- is the spittin' image of a real bottle of bubbly. (Activists in Scotland, where 40% of 15-year olds reportedly drink "regularly," are particularly miffed.)
