Four Loko is coming to Ireland and we’re both scared and excited

If you've ever been on a J1 to the States, or even heard war stories from those who have, you will be well aware of the mythical Four Loko. 

For those not in the know, Four Loko is a malt liquor drink which comes in a 750ml can, and has a 12% alcohol content.

It's generally considered to be absolute rocket fuel and the term "it would blow the head off you" is no exaggeration. 

 This life changing (or at least Saturday night changing) news comes from a new Facebook page called @FourLokoEire, who claim that the cans will be available in Ireland in 2017.

One can of fruit-flavoured fizzy drink has the alcoholic equivalent of either one bottle of wine, four cans of beer or eight (yes eight) shots of spirits. 

“WE'RE BRINGING FOUR LOKO TO IRELAND. It's the truth. Get excited,” the page claims, in a post that has garnered thousands of likes.

However, there has been no word from Four Loko about the Irish launch, so whether this is the truth, a hoax, or simply a few lads hoping to import the stuff for profit is yet to be seen.
