Four Loko, the controversial once-caffeinated flavored malt beverage that was blamed to have hospitalized college students from around the country, has just announced the release of Poco Loko. The drink, now caffeine-free due to an FDA ban, will be available in 16-ounce cans instead of 23.5-ounce cans found with Four Loko and at a strength of 8 percent alcohol by volume, instead of the normal 12 percent. The product, which will be available in four packs and in single cans, is being introduced in order to meet consumer demand for additional products and flavors, and to continue diversifying the Phusion Projects line of products.
“We’ve always been a company that listens to what our consumers want,” said Chris Hunter, one of the co-founders of Phusion Projects. “Poco Loko is a great product to bring to market, and we’re excited to re-introduce fan favorite Green Apple, originally from the Four Loko XXX Limited Edition line.”
As with all Phusion Projects products, Poco Loko is a flavored malt beverage that does not contain caffeine, guarana or taurine.
