LOL juice no laughing matter, says school



Kids, just say no to LOL. That’s the message coming from Bankstown Grammar School in Sydney, where the carbonated fruit juice is being consumed as a breakfast beverage by children as young as six.

Despite the claims that the side of the packaging make about the soft-drink containing “no bad stuff”, each can contains 26mg of sugar, and the design – with its large smiley face and colourful labelling – has been criticised for looking similar to the Red Bull design.

Personally, I think the children are in more danger of having a lexicon similar to that of your average lolcat thanks to the four flavours the drink comes in: ‘B current’, ‘Tropkl’, ‘Razz bri’ and ‘Gomango’. I am oddly drawn to the drink though – if they were available in the UK, I’d definitely give a can a try, just for the lols, naturally.
