Vanilla Coke

Vanilla Coke came out today. Anyone tried it? What's the verdict (besides anti-corporation rants)? This person was underwhelmed.

South Koreans replace Coke with dog meat juice at World Cup soccer stadium.

South Koreans replace Coke with dog meat juice at World Cup soccer stadium. Maybe I'm missing something in the translation. Related story on World Cup dog meat burgers here (in Japanese, sorry). Rough translation on FG.

<Jaws theme> Legislating a sin tax on soda </Jaws theme>

<Jaws theme> Legislating a sin tax on soda </Jaws theme> California state Senate Bill 1520 would impose an excise tax on sweetened beverages sold to retail dealers after July 1, 2003. Sen. Deborah V. Ortiz, the bill’s author, anticipates that pop distributors would pass the cost along to consumers. Just let me keep buying Entenmann's crumb cake, ok?

The truth is out there... but is it The Real Thing?

The truth is out there... but is it The Real Thing? An example of 'victim' mentality in action. Big Bubba attempts to mug a coke machine, and it squashes him like a bug. Rather than accept the fact their son died a lunkhead's death, his parents declare he was the victim of a conspiracy.

"Why did the Sherbrooke Police play at tilting the machine themselves to see if they could tip it? Is not that the role of experts?"

I want to be an expert soda-machine tipper...

Coca Cola vs. H2O:

Coca Cola vs. H2O: Common dreams republishes documents from CocaCola's website describing their ongoing war against tap water in resturaunts. The bottom line? Tap water doesn't make money for CocaCola, but drinking bottled tap water such as Dasani does.

Covergent irony,

Covergent irony, perhaps, maybe intentional commentary. So the New York Times writes an article about the relationship between globalization and commercial messages, particularly the insertion of globalization itself into the commercials and advertisements. The headline: "Globalization on Film: Message in a Coca-Cola Can." Guess what was in the advertisement to the right of the story. Right: a Diet Coke advert. The ad rotates on re-load, so here's a screenshot, 36k.

Coca-Cola on tap at home?

Coca-Cola on tap at home? New recipies that include "2 cups of Coca-Cola"? Taking this a step further makes it interesting, with all manner of juices being available on-call.

Coca-Cola stays ahead of the curve.

Coca-Cola stays ahead of the curve. [NY Times, requires free subscription.] Facing increased criticism over commercialism in public schools, Coke vows to change its policies away from blatant advertising and strictly offering sugar-sweetened drinks. Most notable is a potential end to the "Cola Wars" of exclusive contracts with school districts. But with Pepsi following close behind [see end of Post article], is this really a landmark moment, or an attempt to stave off criticism while still branding the available target audience of teenagers?
