"Alcopop" is the name coined for sweetened alcoholic beverages that are usually sold as canned beverages. They are often fruit-flavored, carbonated and designed to resemble soft drinks. Originally, alcopops only contained about 5% of alcohol, similar to one bottle of beer. Alcopops are highly popular amongst the younger age bracket of drinkers. They are known as good tasting alternatives to beer, which can quickly be chugged and cause intoxication in a relatively short period of time. In recent times, the producers of various alcopops have pushed the alcohol limits up to 12% per can. Also, alcopops were originally smaller cans, averaging in quantity from about 8 to 10 ounces. Now, these cans are supersized and reach amounts of up to 24 ounces.
