Your Coke Fun Fact of the Day

Here’s your fun Coke fact of the day: Diet Coke is actually based on the formula of Coke II – you know, that Awful Soda that ranks up there with Crystal Pepsi. The kind-of-new Coke Zero is based on… Coke Classic.

So all y’all who are drinking Diet Coke are drinking Coke II! Suckers!

D'oh!

I would believe it, though. These formulas are incestuous in a way that makes Dallas look like a kiddie show.

What's the formula for "regular" fountain coke at, say, a Red Robin -- not that I'd ever eat at a crap place like that?

Don't be dissin' the Crystal Pepsi. Put Coke II up there with Pepsi Kona...or Pepsi Blue..but not that delicious beverage that I hope makes a comeback. *sigh*.

Somewhere in a stash of stuff is a static plastic promotional item for "NEW! Crystal Pepsi. Available in this machine" Or something like that.

It must have magically followed me home one day.

Ciao,

What about how the stuff is much too sweet? If it were bitter it would be much more satisfyng. Also, why is it nobody buys carbonated fruit juice. I got the jones for carbonated apple cider when I was a lad and the stuff never stays on the market.

Reed's makes a tasty apple cider beverage that I'm pretty sure is carbonated. It's called Reed's Spiced Apple Brew, and it's delish!

On the Diet Coke thing, I have no comment, and Paul knows why.

How about Izze? 100% carbonated and 100% juice! Target carries it now.
