Review of "Coca-Cola"
Back to work now so finding it hard to rate peoples ops - will try to.
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 thenWHEN 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.
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.
CARBONATED WATER (shocking for me as I hate water!)This is water that has been charged with carbon dioxide
SUGAR 10 tsp per can!
CAFFIENE - 45.6 mgs per 12oz serving!
Then just mix with carbonated water - i have never tried this so couldn't tell you if it does or not.
