"I think Coke has jumped the shark."Pop culture
That was my roommate's response when I showed him the four-pack of Coca-Cola Blak I brought home from the grocery store last night. For those who haven't heard about this, it's Coke with "coffee essence." It's also $6 for four 8oz. bottles, at least in my store. Expensive, but I can't imagine it'll last very long, and I realized that I just wouldn't be able to live myself if it went off the market and I'd never tried it. Plus, there was a coupon. I like coupons.
We just opened the first bottle at work this afternoon. My roommate doesn't like it and stands by his shark-jumping claim. My verdict, shared by a third friend who tried it, was "It's not as bad as I'd feared." It's odd-tasting, but not unpleasant, actually. I'll probably drink the others I bought, but I doubt I'll buy it again (except possibly to bring to a party as a novelty or something), at least at this price.
And on a related note, ever wonder how much of your favorite caffeinated drink it would take to kill you? Death by Caffeine solves this burning question!Posted by Kat at April 7, 2006 02:30 PM
