Q & A

Are we going to far with FDA restrictions?  If you‘re old enough to buy alcohol legally - then aren’t you also old enough to know if you should drink it and how?  

It seems the government doesn’t think we can decide for ourselves whether or not we choose to mix alcohol with caffeine.....

    • This is a tough one. I see the point in not having the government get their fingers in yet another pie. But by the same token, since the drinks are targeted at young people maybe there should be some type of information in big bold print for them to see. Not that they’ll even read it or heed its warnings. I just see some very clever marketing coming to target these kids and then someone getting hurt and a new wave of frivolous law suits hitting the court system.

    • Ellen, I heard about the Cheerios problem.  Was Quaker Oats part of that as well?  I’m not sure but I wouldn’t be surprised.  

      Cynthia, I hear what you‘re saying about the lawsuits.  It’s almost like a Catch-22 kind of thing.  

      We all want to keep ourselves and our kids healthy.  I have a 22 year-old daughter and I don’t want her to overindulge in alcohol, but at the same time we need to take some responsibility for our actions.  I suppose my question could have been, “at what age do we start being truly adult?”
