What is happening to our beloved Sparks? Rumors and talks have been going round and round regarding the removal of Sparks from the production lines. There has been a big uproar from concerned citizens that Alcoholic Energy Drinks are dangerous especially for kids. Last I checked, kids are not supposed to drink Alcohol. In December, Miller Brewing announced that in Q1, they will be continuing Sparks but without the Caffeine. That leaves an Orange flavored Malt beverage with some Taurine and Ginseng.
As of December 2008, at the behest of San Francisco and 13 states, distributor MillerCoors LLC is taking the caffeine out of its Sparks line of energy drinks, which list ginseng, taurine and 6 to 7 percent alcohol among its other ingredients, as well as changing its marketing campaign. "We're doing it to protect the public health of our young people and to reform business practices," said S.F. City Attorney Dennis Herrera.
That is great for the young people but what about us old idiots who need feel young???
