A powdered asparagus, that can be snorted in lines like cocaine, is on sale for £50 a gram. Each bag apparently yields about 10-12 lines.

Columbian Asparagus, as the snortable vegetable is being marketed, is said to be a “sensory experience” although it is doubtful if you get a hit for your cash.

Bubble Food´s MD Michael Collins said that a “variety of scientific processes” led to the creation of Colombian Asparagus.

“Once inhaled, it delivers a unique sensory experience,” he said.

Apparently, asparagus’ low acidity makes it one of the few foods suitable for this type of treatment.

Hmm. Maybe not. But good marketing gimmick Bubble Food folks!
