To be fair, the container does sort of look like an energy drink.
A high schooler from Atlanta was confused by the drink her mother packed in her lunch one day: It was a Four Loko, an alcoholic beverage.
Naturally, Strange tweeted about the incident:
"I texted my mom about it and she couldn’t believe the mistake she made," Strange told BuzzFeed News. "She was half asleep when packing my lunch and thought it was a Peace Tea."
Strange said she tweeted the story for her friends to see since she found it funny.
She said she made sure to throw out the drink before she got to school.
Although her mother was embarassed, she had a sense of humor about the situation.
"She said, 'I need to get a cup of coffee before I try and pack lunches from now on,'" Strange said.
Still, Strange is thankful to have a mother who still packs her lunches.
"I’m just blessed to have a great mom that does lots for me," she told BuzzFeed News.
Peace Tea, similar to Arizona Tea, comes in similarly-sized cans, like the Four Loko drink.
BuzzFeed News reported that the drink belonged to Strange's 23-year-old brother, and that is was located in a fridge that the family does not regularly use.
Strange's tweet was tweeted and retweeted thousands of times.
The tweet has over 90,000 retweets and over 210,000 likes.
