A Lesson on Coke

I’m not sure what happened, but tonight I found this absolutely fascinating! Growing up, my family and I always had either Sprite or Coke around depending on what my brother and I were into at the time. I wouldn’t normally have it with every meal, but I did enjoy it every once in awhile. When I got to college, I had more options for drinks and never got a coke. I now have coke as an option for a drink every day at work and don’t touch it. Well, maybe I do once a month as a treat. It’s crazy how much one can of coke can have such a huge impact. I was never that good at science back in school, but still found this super interesting to read.

Thank you Huffington Post for the very educational lesson.

Coca-Cola Life

Coca-Cola has announced that they are launching a new brand alternative to the standard Coca-Cola with Coca-Cola Life. We’re loving the grasshopper hue, but what exactly does this mean? Coca-Cola life will apparently be sweetened with both sugar and stevia – a natural calorie-free sugar substitute. The new packaging will also be fully recyclable as it made with 30% plant materials. With half the calories of a normal Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Life will not only be efficient and just plain awesome, but healthier as well.  You heard me. Soda is healthy.

Unfortunately, Coca-Cola Life is only available in Argentina. So I guess we’ll be waiting awhile…

Daft Cola


The carbonated beverage and electronic music duo have joined forces to bring you shiny Daft Cola bottles. Beginning March, you will be able to order yourself one of these exclusive bottles at the most exclusive clubs that you may or may never be admitted in to.

So maybe the bottles are limited edition, but I wonder how much one costs.

The coke I had at lunch

…with my Taco Time.

Disgusting…yet powerful. And this is why we are so strongly affected by advertisements.

Here’s my question to you:

Do you still drink soda/pop/cola?

Today was the first time I have had pop in probably months! My family no longer buys it and I typically stick to water and milk (I’m still growing?) at school. When I was a kid, however, orange soda and squirt were my beverages of choice!
