Make Mine a Cola
Author Name: WackoStepho
Advantages: Sweet, sugary flavour, perfect for people with a sweet tooth.
Disadvantages: Sugar and calorie content!
Here is is *drumroll* my favourite drink of all time...it's none other than the original Coca-Cola. Now we all know that it isn't the healthiest drink in the world by any means but what it lacks in nutritional value it more than makes up for in flavour. A lot of people will screw their noses up in disgust at just how sweet it is but for a retired sugar junkie like me (I'm cutting down, honest) when I'm feeling low, run down or just downright fed up I reach for a glass of this and revel in it's sweet, sugary flavour. For me it's the perfect tonic.
Coca Cola comes in many flavours and varieties, from diet to vanilla or cherry but my favourite is the good old original. No wonder it is the world's favourite soft drink and has been enjoyed by many since 1886. The ingredients involved are: Carbonated water, sugar, colour (caramel E150d), phosphoric acid, natural flavourings (including caffeine). Doesn't sound all that healthy does it? But as long as your not swigging back pint after pint of the stuff on a daily basis it'll do you no harm, after all a little of what you fancy does you good. The downside to Coca Cola is it's sugar content, dentists stop reading now lol. Per every little 150ml serving you'll be glugging 15.9 grams of sugar - blimey! And when you think about it, 150ml isn't an awful lot.
However, the taste more than makes up for its shocking amount of sugar, the flavour is hard to describe, it's like no other drink you'll come across. Even after trying supermarket's own brands nothing really comes close to the flavour of Coca Cola. I'm sure most of you will have tried this drink at some point in your life, it's not for everyone as not everyone has a sweet tooth but I must admit to be rather a fan of the stuff! All this reviewing has made me thirsty... now for a glass of cola... :)
