I very much doubt there is anyone who has not heard of Coca-Cola. Having been around since the 1860's I think it is fair to say it has made its mark on the food and drink world! With its famous red and white logo and its "Always Coca-Cola" jingle, it is one of the most recognisable brands of our time.
Coca-Cola comes in cans and bottles. It is a brown, fizzy liquid which tastes best ice cold and fizzy - personally I hate flat fizzy drinks and I also think they do not taste as nice when warm. It is sugary sweet and great if you need a little sugar boost during a busy day. It does have a very high sugar content but I am sure everyone knows this anyway.
Personally I much prefer the 500ml bottles to the cans. The bottles are just so much more convenient as you can drink as little or as much as you want and then stow it away in your bag for later whereas with a can once you have popped it open that is it you have to drink it all or throw some away. Cans tend to retails for around 60-70p whilst bottles can be anthing from £1.00-£1.50 depending on where you are.
Coca-Cola is available in other flavours - Diet, Zero, Cherry, Diet Cherry, Lime and Vanilla.
I am a fizzy drink addict. I am terrible and I probably will not have any teeth left by the time I am 80! However, Coca-Cola is not my favourite brand of cola - my favourite is another very well known brand. Sometimes I find I can taste a vegetable oil taste in Coca-Cola. Not all the time but sometimes I do and it is not a nice aftertaste. Having said that though Coca-Cola is the brand I reach for if my favourite is not available.
I do not recommend Coca-Cola for children on a regular basis, as a treat every now and then is fine but not daily as I know some parents do.
