I know being in Canada we haven’t had much first-hand experience with the awesome wide-awake drunk feeling provided by alcohol-energy drink Four Loko, and now we’ll get to miss out on it’s environmental benefits, too. As retailers stop selling it due to FDA pressure in the US, truckloads of it are being sent to processing plants to be turned into pure ethanol.
I sincerely like the implications this has for using biofuels of a more renewable nature (that don’t consume foodcrops).
And I ironically appreciate that now hipsters can literally have a Four Loko fueled night. What a world we live in.
