Coca Cola is one of those brands that no matter where you live in the world, not only is it widely available, but also an extremely popular soft drink. In addition to this, it is also one of the oldest soft drink brands around, first appearing on the market way back in the 1860s. Aside from the actual drink, the logo's and overall appearance of the can are famous worldwide, and you can walk into any local shop and instantly recognise a can or bottle of Coca Cola.
As I have just mentioned, you can buy two variations of Coca Cole, firstly in the smaller can, and then in the larger sized bottles, which themselves comes in a number of different sizes. The taste of Cola is instantly recognisable, highly sweet tasting and fizzy, and in my opinion, it is best to enjoy Coca Cola straight from the fridge of poured over a glass of ice, as drinking it cold really is the best way. For years people have said that this drink contains too much sugar, but I personally think that it is the sugar content that makes this drink so enjoyable and is an amazing way to get a boost to your energy levels throughout the day. But saying that, like everything these days, drink it in moderation, as too much sugar can be harmful.
When I was a kid, I would always go into the corner shop and buy a can on my way to school. These days though, I much prefer to get the larger bottle, as you get more of course, and it lasts that little bit longer. Plus with a bottle you can screw the cap back on and save it for later. There are three size's in the bottle that I have seen anyway. Firstly you can get the ever popular 500ml bottles, and then there are the share size 1.5L and 2L bottles which you can pick up from your local supermarket for roughly £2 depending on where you shop and if they are on offer. The cans are considerably cheaper costing about 50p.
Although I am reviewing the original Coca Cola drink, I think that I should also mention here that there are although varieties on the market, each with their own flavours. There is the Diet, with a lower sugar content, and of course Cherry, which is quickly becoming a favourite of mine. Others out there also include, Zero and Vanilla which I cant stand.
I have to admit that I am addicted to this drink, and normally you can see me with a can or bottle in my hand when out and about. I do buy the larger bottles when at home, and when served cold is one of the most refreshing drinks you can buy. Coca Cola definitely gets my recommendation. Thanks.
Summary: Great drink for all
