Mom accidentally packs a Four Loko in her daughter’s lunch

Mckenzie Strange, a 17-year-old high school junior from Georgia, was surprised to find something in her lunch that was just a smidgen crazier than a Capri Sun or a Fruit Roll-Up.

The teen’s mom still occasionally packs a school lunch for her, and this past week, Strange found something in her meal that you might recognize from your freshman-year dorm fridge: a Four Loko.

Confused about her mom’s drink selection for a school lunch, Strange texted her.

Luckily, the teen caught her mom’s mistake before she got to school and got rid of the boozy beverage. Apparently the can belonged to Strange’s 23-year-old brother. Their mom was half-asleep while packing the lunch and thought the colorfully designed drink was a Peace Tea. It’s a pretty honest mistake when you think about how similar the cans look, but it’s still hilarious.

And while this mom now knows better the next time she packs a lunch, we know of at least one other “cool mom” who would totally be guilty of doing this.
