Four Loko is a line of alcoholic beverages, originally marketed as energy drinks, sold by Phusion Projects of Chicago, Illinois. Phusion operates as Drink Four Brewing Company. Four Loko, the company's most popular beverage, debuted in the United States market in 2005. It is now sold in 48 states, and in Europe and Canada. The name Four is derived from the original energy drink's four main ingredients: alcohol, caffeine, taurine, and guarana. Four branded products have been the object of legal, ethical, and health concerns related to the company allegedly marketing them to minors and the purported danger of combining alcohol and caffeine. After the beverage was banned in several states, a product reintroduction in December 2010 removed caffeine, taurine, and guarana as ingredients, and the malt beverage is no longer marketed as an energy drink. There are three product lines within the Four brand: Four Loko contains carbonated water, sugar, and natural and artificial flavoring including FD&C Red 40. Four Loko is available in eight flavors: Uva Berry (Grape), Fruit Punch, Orange Blend, Watermelon, Blue Raspberry, Lemon Lime, Lemonade, and Cranberry Lemonade. Poco Loko is available
