    @1 that's odd. Me too! Nasty stuff.

    I can only drink it if;
    it is over lots of ice, with plenty of freshly squeezed lime juice and drowned in a quality Caribbean rum.
    Then, and only then, is Coca Cola actually drinkable.

    Although l haven't drunk C/C in years, it was refreshing when taken in the morning after getting drunk the night before.
    lt had to be icy cold though.
    Then l used to hold the still cold bottle to my forehead to relieve the throbbing.
    l don't get drunk anymore so C/C's only use is cleaning old coins or getting rust off chrome.

    It is also quite good for removing limescale from taps and toilets (if one lives in a hard water area)!

    Apparently they will now put labels on water to show you what's inside

    Coca Cola is going to be selling water in the UK soon. Again!
    Second time around. They really messed up last time when it was shown they were flogging recycled tap water from some bottling plant in Kent. Can't remember the whole story now. Google it if you like.

    Soda is nothing but fart juice, one might as well be drinking battery acid.

    And to think i was extremely addicted to Coca Cola until 2 years ago when i decided to stop drinking it. I'm so glad that i did, and i don't regret anything. Good riddance.
    I used to drink almost 4 to 6Lt everyday. I even drank Coca Cola for breakfast, lol.
