Voting on this match-up is closed. Zima (59%) defeats Four Loko (41%).

Just to be clear, Four Loko still exists. But we are talking about ORIGINAL Four Loko. In  late 2010, after widespread media attention and criticism, the company changed its formula to remove caffeine, taurine, and guarana as ingredients, aka all the fun stuff. While they still sell the reformulated version, it’s a helluva lot harder to find than when its popularity was at its zenith.

Zima was introduced by MillerCoors as an alternative to beer in 1993. All domestic production had ceased by 2008, although they still sell it in Japan. Slate had an awesome recap of its history titled “The Long, Slow, Torturous Death of Zima.”
