Advantages: good availability.
Disadvantages: gassy and too fizzy makes me feel sick.
Coca cola is a very popular fizzy drink these days. It comes in a variety of flavours, bottle sizes and you can buy it from pretty much everywhere you go. You can get a can of coke for about 60p, a small bottle for about £1 and a two litre bottle for about £1.80 depending on where you are. Coke is also available to drink in places like Mcdonalds and KFC.
It's a black coloured drink that tastes really sweet. It's hard to describe the taste, just sweet and really fizzy. It contains caffeine which gives you a bit of an energy buzz and it makes my grandson who is 4 paticularly energetic and hyperactive so I can't say I'd recommend it for children. One can of coke contains approximately 140 calories which is quite a lot really considering there isn't much pop in one can. It's also really bad for your teeth because of the sugar content.
My dentist said that if you're going to drink coke you should try to drink it through a straw because it touches your teeth a lot less. So if you drink a lot of Coke, this is something you might want to try.
I think it taste OK, it's not the most refreshing and because it is so fizzy I often find it makes me feel really bloated like I constantly need to burp, sorry, I know that sounds disgusting. But it means I don't really like to drink this at all. I have found that most of my friends in their 60's don't drink it so I do think it is more popular with younger people.
I know that this is a drink that people drink with alcohol like bacardi and vodka. I tried a bit with vodka and thought it tasted better than it does on it's own, one because I like vodka and two because it takes the fizz off the coke a bit so lessens the gas effect.
Overall, this isn't a healthy option to drink. They have the coke zero now which contains no sugar but it still has sweetners and isn't really good for you. I personally don't like this drink, I think it makes you feel gassed up and uncomfortable and I don't know how people drink lots of it, especially when they're eating. I don't like coke at all.
Summary: Not the best fizzy drink on the market.
