And Paul Oakenfold is cool in a weird way, but Sasha and Digweed were cooler in an even more weird way. Throw in the Rabbit in the Moon and...

Why is four loko still on the shelves of practically every convenience and liquor store I go into if it was banned? Is it that its manufacture was banned but its still allowed to be sold until it dries up? Iím new to all this banned beverages nonsense

The alcoholic Four Loko is banned. They still market the non alcoholic version and kept the same packaging.

They still sell the alcoholic version in my area but I think the recipe was changed.

Sans caffeine.

It was the combination of caffeine and high abv that got the legislatorsí panties in a wad.

Against my first instinct, I think this guy is not in this for actual academic/substantial research. I would suspect he is a InBev drone who lied on his resume, somehow landed a marketing/research job that he is unqualified for (rich associated dad, or perhaps a mom who aborted Mr Buschí 15th born to keep the tartar off of his record), got really excited that he got the job, got his first assignment, panicked when he got his first assignment, realized he was totally unqualified, beat off in the handicap stall of the employee bathroom on the floor below his twice in a row to relieve the stress, then created an account here so that we can do his work for him.

Be honest, am I close?


This is very inappropriate in the industry forum.

Before the banning of those Four Loko-type of malt beverage that contained caffeine by the FDA, a group of state attorney generals had already gone to both Anheuser Busch and Miller and got them to agreed to reformulate their similar "energy" drinks to remove the caffeine - ABís Bud Extra (originally called B to the E) and Tilt and Millerís Sparks.
