Four Loko Now Being Recycled into Ethanol

Print comment Post Comments
Yesterday, we talked about where to find Four Loko, the outlawed alcoholic energy drink, in NYC.

Today, we bring you the mother lode.

The Washington Post reports:

Truckloads of Four Loko and other alcohol-laced energy drinks are being recycled into ethanol and other products after federal authorities told manufacturers the beverages were dangerous and caused users to become "wide-awake drunk."

Wholesalers from Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland and other East Coast states started sending cases of the high-alcohol, caffeinated malt beverages to MXI Environmental Services in Virginia after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a crackdown on the sale of such beverages in November.

Okay, okay. First let’s address what the story is really about. That is, that Four Loko is actually being turned into ethanol. That, in of itself, is pretty fascinating. And we applaud the scientific minds at MXI Environmental Services for their breakthrough work.

But what’s this story really, really about?

The fact that a few hundred trucks carrying Four Loko are descending upon Virginia as we speak and that each truck hold “2,000 cases of the 23.5-ounce cans.”

That means we’re talking literally hundreds of thousands of cans of original, positively dangerous and disgusting Four Loko are still out there for the taking.

Now, we wouldn’t dare suggest that anyone actually visit MXI Environmental Services to plunder this treasure. But if you’re interested, here’s where you can find it.
