"Oh no not another can"

It's the sort of opinion where people think - why are they writing about a can of juice, I asked myself that question a moment ago and then thought, Cause it's not any old can of juice, it's Coca Cola!! Okay maybe I should clear the air and make sure you all realise first of all - I'm not obsessed with it (honest)

Well maybe I do drink about 20 cans a day, but I can't help it, I'm hooked to the stuff, and all that caffiene is the only thing that keeps me awake - 3 month old baby and he still doesn't sleep right through the night - arrgh.

So lets get on to the subject then

WHEN WAS IT FOUNDED
One fine day in 1886, A Dr. John Stythe Pemberton invented the popular drink in......HIS BACK YARD!!!! (In Atlanta, Georgia) He instantly gave the product the name that we know it as. He died, someone else bought it (1888, Asa Candler ) they sold the company, (1919, Ernest Woodruff) And they are still the owners of the product today.

THE CAN
Sitting in front of me is a red can with white writing on it saying Coca-Cola. They also have a picture of a bottle (?? On a Can??) with cola splashing out of it. Under the writing it says - Enjoy (I certainly do!!)
A can holds 330ml.

INGREDIENTS (From the can)- Pencils ready to learn about them!!
CARBONATED WATER (shocking for me as I hate water!)This is water that has been charged with carbon dioxide
SUGAR 10 tsp per can!
COLOUR
PHOSPHORIC ACID
CAFFIENE - 45.6 mgs per 12oz serving!


MAKE YOUR OWN
It has been said that The Exact Coca - Cola Syrup WILL taste like this (Ingredients)
1 ounce of extract of vanilla
4 ounces of citrate of caffeine
2 ounces of citric acid
30 pounds of sugar
2 gallons of water
2 pints of lime juice
6 drams (3/4 ounce) of fluid extract of cola
6 drams of fluid extract of coca

Then just mix with carbonated water - i have never tried this so couldn't tell you if it does or not.

THE TASTE
As they say deliciosly refreshing and less watery tasting as is pepsi!

THE COST
Around 50p per can
80p per 500ml bottle
£1.40 per 2 litre bottle
£3.19 for 12 cans

TWO OF THE ADS WE'LL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO FORGET
THAT CHRISTMAS ONE
You know the one I'm talking about, the one that is on every christmas. With all the Coca Cola trucks driving and the little boys face and that annoying song you get in your head at some point
'Holidays are coming (1million times)
Always Coca Cola'
THE POLAR BEARS
They featured in a lot of ads and I must admit - I WANT ONE!!!!

So, as you see, Coca Cola has been summed up in one. I'm off now to get one out of the fridge. mmm

    More of a Pepsi fan me! But that "holidays are coming" ad, annoying though it may be, always let us know (when we were little) when Christmas was approaching. Amy x
