Alcopops and parents

More than one half of adults believe that alcopops promote underage drinking. That’s the result of a recent study by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation.

Alcopops are sweet, flavored alcoholic beverages that look and taste like soda, tea, punch, or lemonade. The labels on these drinks can be confusing, and even though they often have a higher alcohol content than beer, the product packaging may not even be clear that there is alcohol inside.

According to the survey, most adults support stricter laws regarding alcopops.
