Coke Additiction?

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Is anyone here addicted to Coke?

Not the white powder but the black liquid that comes in red cans??

Ever since the hot weather started I've been drinking a can or two a day .. but I know it's loaded with sugar and I've put on 2 pounds recently and I reckon it's the coke!!

Anyway I'm going cold turkey .. it's been 4 days!!!
But I miss it so much !!! ...

Met a guy the other day that says he drinks 4 litres of it per day!!.....

Anyone else have a soft spot for this drink?

    I have 3 bottles of the stuff in my kitchen, and one in the fridge. All vanilla coke.

    Eugh no. I don't mind the flavour, but I cannot stand fizzy drinks.

    I have a friend who's addicted to it though. And my brother's pretty obsessive about it.

    I used to be like that but now I've learned to like it, I wouldn't choose it as a first choice but I will drink it if it's there. But I would never get addicted to it. My best mate gets all high and bubbly when she drinks it though - tis quite amusing.

    I wouldn't give you the satisfaction deary. But I will shut up now, I might be bitter but I can keep that to myself (oh and that isn't the reason I'm bitter)

    I used to drink it on regular basis (nowhere near addiction tho). But then I always got this feeling that my teeth were sugar coated after drinking it. It has put me off it permanently. Sure enough, I do drink it on some occasions (mainly when eating a hamburger or a pizza) but otherwise I stay clear of it. And I rather drink water than drink diet-something of fizzy drinks. Aspartame.. *shrugs*

    I'm not that keen on coke. I prefer Pepsi. A few years ago, I used to drink about two litres of it a day. Now I only have it as an occasional treat. :( Mind you, it's even more gorgeous when I do have it now. :yum:

    drink 2 litres of the stuff a day.. has to be actual coca cola, none of the others even come close...

    nothing beats a chilled can of coca cola from the fridge.. has to be in cans too, tastes much better from cans than bottles IMO.

    The machines in mc donalds provide nice coke, especially nice fanta orange.

    the stuff they do in mcdonalds is made from coca cola syrup, hence the different taste.

    Still nice though :yum:

    Are you in the USA? The ones at McDonalds are always flat!!

    There's something dodgy about those mixer machines - the tasted watered down and before anyone tell me about the differences between the machines that use a concentrate and mix it with water and CO2 - I already know - I used to work for Coca-Cola and we had the stuff on tap, along with sprite, fanta, tea, coffee, soup, black current, and loads of other drinks!! - Drink as much as you want whilst at work!! In the end we used to make cocktails out of the different drinks combining them - Fanta and sprite taste good together!!

    And the machine in the CoCa Cola offices made a much better tasting drink ... actually the machines in Nandos make better drinks then the MacDonald's ones!!

    i love coke although my mum wont by it for me she would rather waste her money on stuff my sister CAN eat (allergies) but wont eat. my needs arnt as good as my sisters, i mean shes only at home 6 days a month!

    i cant drink coke if its fizzy, it makes me feel ill, yet gives me amazing burps! i have to let it go flat, i prefure it that way anyway.
