The colorful flavors of Four Loko: an inside look and unofficial review

Despite their descriptive names, each Four Loko flavor largely tastes like chemicals and sugar.

Bans aren’t ‘Blasts’

Collegian columnist Matthew M. Robare investigates proposals to ban flavored malt beverages.

Collegian columnist Stacey Linehan won’t give up her Four Loko until they pull it from her cold, dead hands.
