I don't know what took so long, but the U.S. is finally getting one of the world's most popular hangover cures.

From Bloomberg Businessweek, there's a product called Berocca that's sold as a hangover cure in a lot of countries overseas . . . and apparently people swear by it.  Now we're finally going to get to see what the hype is about.

Bayer has decided to start selling Berocca in the U.S. . . . and it's hitting the shelves at stores like Walgreens, CVS, Walmart, and Target now.  They're little orange-flavored tablets filled with vitamins, zinc, and caffeine that dissolve in water.  It's basically just like Emergen-C, only it's specifically for curing hangovers.

Bayer says they decided to start selling it in the U.S. now because, quote, "It was the right time and the right moment" . . . (???).
