Regardless, Four Loko is due to be in the headlines and on grocery lists for a while longer, as who can resist the sensationalism of a 23.5-ounce can of Four Loko that "contains the amount of alcohol in three cans of beer blended with the caffeine of three cups of coffee?" There's no caloric information on the cans, but online we learn that they are between 660-800 calories per can. Forget the alcohol; those numbers alone are scary.
If there's ones place where Four Loko may never be banned, it's Ohio. The drink was developed by alumni of Ohio State University, and Ohio sells the beverage with the full 12.5% alcohol by volume strength (versus other states, where it can be as low as 6%). It's made in Illinois, however, so we bet some Midwest field trips are in order. Don't drink and drive though, no matter how much caffeine is in a drink.
