Just when you thought the American commercialization of La Fee Verte couldn't get anymore cynical:

The new Absinthe Chocolate Chip cookie dough is made with Lucid Absinthe. Absinthe is a green anise flavored liquor made with herbs and botanicals. It was popular with 19th century Parisian artists and gained a reputation partially based on myth - as a hallucinogen. It was legalized in the U.S. in 2007. T.A. Breaux, who formulated Lucid and was instrumental in legalizing absinthe, says about the cookie: "We thought they [Absinthe Chocolate Chip] were quite delightful just the way they were. There's just enough Lucid to tease, which is the way it should be."

partially based on myth? oh I see!! space cake anyone??
