Four Loko Is Back, Without the Caffeine


Under pressure from authorities, Four Loko’s day-glo cans are now being sold without caffeine, taurine, and guarana. Health and government officials said the cocktail of stimulants and depressants were toxic when mixed. But without the hyperactive buzz keeping you bouncing around the room long after the malt liquor should’ve taken you under, who’s going to want booze that tastes like melted Sweet Tarts in a pool of battery acid? With a catchy moniker like “blackout in a can” and flavors like Blue Raspberry and MaXed, we’re guessing … children. [NYDN]
