Scotch-maker Glenlivet is promoting something different: edible capsules that hold mini servings of whiskey cocktails. They look like little pillows, and were immediately compared to Tide pods.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

They look like little pillows. And people online immediately compared them to Tide Pods, as in the laundry detergent. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
