Why bother? How hard is it to mix alcohol with an energy drink?

I just read it was banned in ohio, which im sorta upset i didn't get to try it.

but no. i dont think it should be. i mean, binge drinking is gonna happen... and a lil caffeine, well, hell... people may have a redbull pre game.
idk. i think its stupid.

They she be banned for one reason only: They taste like sh*t.

taking one can and filling it with both a dangerous amount of alcohol, AND a stimulant to mask the effects? what a great idea

but the health concerns are the reason I think we should keep it around. if you drink one, you're retarded. if you drink two, you're incredibly retarded and probably dead. and the gene pool gets a little bit nicer

You can make it through 2 of them.

But they provide a major headache the next morning.

10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Thursday 11/18/10 - 10:56:59 PM EST (GMT-5)

Gingers are lacking more than souls.
Taste buds as well.

never even heard of it until now, but then I don't drink alcohol, and I've only drank like 2 energy drinks since the last 4 years. I can care less.

java monster and kahlua got me through some really tough times.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 2:11:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I want to try it..
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 5:36:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
Like people have said, they arent hard to make, its even easier to make things that are much worse than Four Loco's, so ... I mean, whats the point?

Four Loco's really arent that great anyway, but still.

The only one thats remotely drinkable is the cranberry lemonade. The rest taste horrible.

They are just like Spark's or Tilt's except with 'fruity' flavors and in a bigger can.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 5:42:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
It's not like Sparks. Sparks doesn't have caffeine or taurine.

The federal government really has nothing better to do..?
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 6:05:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oh, I thought they did. I thought they were energy + alcohol?

Either way they both taste equally sh*tty though.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 9:01:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
they sell vodka redbull in our su. nobody seems to have a problem with it in the uk
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Friday 11/19/10 - 9:32:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd never even HEARD of 4 Loko until I saw the report on NBC Nightly News.
So...no, because it's not that hard to acquire alcohol?
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 11/20/10 - 12:26:25 AM EST (GMT-5)
Not until I'm old enough to buy massive quantities of it for scalping purposes first.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 11/20/10 - 4:12:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
Anyone who makes any effort to buy a Four Loco after they are no longer being sold, has either never tasted one, or has never tasted anything else. Or is extremely pathetic.
10 yrs ago, 3 mos ago - Saturday 11/20/10 - 10:08:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
Why is this a big deal anyways? four loco's are not the only energy beer out there and if people wanna drink like that...legal or not...they'll find a way to do it anyways..
