Chambong (champagne + bong)

A “chambong” (champagne + bong) is a flute funnel that allows for faster consumption of champagne. The product was invented in 2014 and was trademarked with a first use date of June 1, 2015. “Chambong” was cited on Twitter on August 24, 2015.
Chambong [sham-bong]
A device used for the rapid and enhanced experience of of sparkling wine / champagne consumption.
It’ll make you friends. Land you that big promotion. Fill the void. Mic drop. Walk off home run. Pick up mic. Crush karaoke. Make your parents proud.
The Chambong has a 6-ounce capacity, is made of a dishwasher-safe, high borosilicate glass, and is a great addition to your barware.
Our Story
The origins of the first Chambong came about in early 2014, during a moment preempting the Super Bowl. We had an epiphany the week prior of the big event to create a “Super…Bowl.” The resulting device of our imagination harnessed an ability to hold an extraordinary amount of cannabis, however was sadly non-functional as a smoking apparatus. Fortune would prevail several evening later, while onlookers examining the piece remarked at how it looked like a fantastic wine “shooter”.  They promptly filled it with Champagne and experienced the resulting magic…And thus was born the glory that is — The Chambong.
@HeatherDubrow Fellow champagne drinker! Can I send you one of these please? It will make you love champs even more.

The Chambong will allow you to drink champagne faster than ever before

If there is anything that champagne lovers truly need, it’s the ability to guzzle their bubbly faster than is physically possible using a normal glass.
Sure, a beer bong would work, but what the world really needs is a special bong just for champagne: the Chambong.
The Chambong is basically a champagne flute funnel

Move over beer bongs, flute funnels will be the next big drinking thing to take Ivy Leagues by storm this Holiday season. It’s not enough to toast to the New Year with a glass made from crystal, it’s all about who can down the most bubbly in a single gulp before the ball drops. And now you can do all that with the Chambong (It’s really hard to say that without thinking of the Shamwow).
