CBS News reported at the time that Four Loko’s primary product was a 23.5 ounce drink that was 12% alcohol by volume, with about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. In advance of an expected FDA ban, Four Loko nixed the caffeine. Nevertheless, it earned a certain reputation on college campuses and elsewhere. The controversy also set off plenty of reminders for folks to drink responsibly. Meanwhile, Four Loko seems to be pleased with the attention online. center_img Now playing: Watch this: 0 6:35 Culture Share your voice Let’s relive our youth and see how well we survive this time around #fourloko #hardseltzer https://t.co/Vypwzxsq0W— Janice Williams (@ManhattanJan) August 14, 2019 Four Loko seltzer is going to be 14% alcohol.
