Schumer Wants FDA to Investigate ‘Snortable Chocolate’
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is calling on the Food and Drug Administration to investigate "snortable chocolate," after a product called Coco Loko has gotten a lot of recent media attention. The New York Democrat said he's worried it could be harmful and says it's being marketed like a drug. Coco Loko includes cacao powder, which comes from beans used in making chocolate and contains caffeine. It also includes other ingredients that are common in energy drinks, and is touted as providing feelings of well-being, mental focus, euphoria and motivation. Nick Anderson, whose company, Legal Lean, sells Coco Loko, said that while he didn't work with any medical professionals, he believes the snortable chocolate is safe. He says he developed it from a similar product that's been used in Europe in recent years.
