In an era of fake news and conspiracy theories, it’s smart to be skeptical of everything you read on the internet. But this week, one theory is spreading so fast we might just have to test it out with some personal research.
People on social media are accusing Capriccio Bubbly Sangria, a bottled drink first introduced in 2014, of having magical, secret ingredients not listed on the bottle that make them get extra drunk. They’ve even gone so far as to dub it as the new Four Loko, the infamous malt beverage that eventually was banned in several places in 2010.
It all started with a tweet claiming “this drink must have some secret sh*t they don’t include in the ingredients cause this wild asf.”
Users began responding to the post with their own experiences with the drink, affirming the assumption that the boozy drink makes people go crazy. The fizzy drink is made in Puerto Rico by mixing Spanish red wine and pineapple, grape, lemon, pomegranate, orange, pear, apple, cherry and lime juices. It’s marked as 13.9 percent alcohol, which is about the same as a regular bottle of wine, so if people really are experiencing something strange, there might be more to it.
Guess you’ll have to see for yourself.
