Over the years, we have tested, reviewed and given the “Tailgate Approved” stamp of approval to many contraptions and devices designed to help you smuggle your booze inside a stadium or event venue. Some of our favorites have included the Freedom Flask and the Booze Belly but we hear complaints all the time about the lack of covert and incognito ways for women tailgaters to sneak a little extra hooch inside the venue past the security guards.
Ladies, your prayers have been heard and they have been answered. Introducing Tampon Flasks.
Tampon Flasks are shaped and designed to look just like a real tampon when in the wrapper. You know that tampons are to guys like kryptonite is to Superman. We won’t even go down the feminine hygiene aisle at the drug store if we don’t have to. So imagine a male security guard looking in bags and backpacks and women’s purses at the gates of a football game or concert. As soon as the bag is opened up and he sees a few tampons still in the wrapper, he will think twice about putting his hand in there and digging around to look for other things. Tampon Flasks look so much like the real thing, you could place these right on top of all the contents in your purse and cruise through security undetected.
You may recall a few weeks ago we wrote about the NFL bag policy for 2013 that greatly reduces the size and types of bags that will be allowed inside NFL stadiums. In short, the new policy allows three types of bags:
- Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12.”
- One-gallon clear plastic freezer bag (Ziploc bag or similar).
- Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap can be taken into the stadium with one of the clear plastic bags.
If you are a female NFL fan, these new rules prohibit you from bringing in your normal purse or backpack. And if you were a pro at hiding airplane sized liquor bottles at the bottom of your purse before this policy, the clear plastic bag mandate necessitates you change your game. Although having tampons visible to all in your clear plastic bag while in line may be a bit of an invasion of privacy, if you use Tampon Flasks, you know in your own mind what’s really in your bag.
The nuts and bolts of these Tampon Flasks is really quite simple but genius all at the same time. These Tampon Flasks resemble test tubes with a resealable, leak proof cap. These “booze tubes” fit one shot of your choice. Once you have filled the tube, cap it off and place it in the tampon wrapper sleeve. Peel the adhesive strip and seal the wrapper around your booze tube. Place them in your purse (or clear plastic bag if going to an NFL game) and watch the security guard’s face grimace with disgust as he opens it up and finds out what is inside. It is pretty foolproof and could not be more simple.
After seeing the Tampon Flasks up close and in person, we knew we had to add these to our online tailgating gear store. With that said, you know that Tampon Flasks are definitely Tailgating Ideas “Tailgate Approved”.
Tampon Flasks come in a package of five (5) reusable tubes and five (5) one use tampon wrappers. The standard package costs $10 plus postage and packaging. The good news is that if you buy two or three packages on the same order, the price for postage stays the same.
With the high prices of tickets, parking and gasoline, we tailgaters need to save where we can. Paying $15 for a rum and cola inside of a concert is highway robbery. Some venues will not sell mixed drinks and only offer beer and wine. For those that prefer their drinks with a little more kick, these Tampon Flasks will pay for themselves the first time you use them.
Make sure to drink responsibly, know your limit and NEVER drink and drive.
