A healthy addiction?

Has anyone seen that new Diet Coke? You know the one... its got vitamins and minerals in it?

I was horribly skeptical.

I willingly took it upon myself to sample this new beverage in order to save the common people from possible insult and injury.

Diet Coke Plus has B3, B6 and B12 in it. I love me some B's. I, in fact, am a B+ person. So, its kind of like it was destiny for me to try this out.

Anyhow - I'll tell you this; it ain't Diet Coke.

But, its not bad. I find it palatable.

I like it much more than Coke Zero or the Diet Coke made with splenda.

And, heck, if it helps promote a normal appetite (B3), helps my brain function (B6), and gives me energy (B12), I'll drink it.

Plus, with that magnesium to help strengthen bones and teeth and the zinc to keep my immune system healthy...

Now, I'm sure that Elizabeth will remind me that nothing can take the place of water. But, c'mon, this has got to be a step in a better direction, right?

Anyway - my opinion? If you like Diet Coke, give this a whirl. If you don't like Diet Coke Plus, ship it to me.

This post is not a sponsored post. I don't get any benefit for telling you all this crap.

My only reward for doing all this 'research' is to enlighten YOU, the reader.

And, to help me find something to blog about today.

Thank you for your attention. This blog will now resume its regularly scheduled programming.

I just fell in love with Coke Zero. I'm not ready to try something new yet.

Why can't they fortify my wine with vitamins and minerals.

You should take a multi-vitamin with your wine. That would do the trick.

You are so funny.
I also like almost any diet coke product, cole zero, whatever I like it. So what is this called?
And yes you are right it doesn't replace water and you know that i had to say it but it is a sorta better step then just diet coke.

I hadn't even heard of this stuff. it probably won't be availabe in Bumfuck Nowhere until 2009....LOL

Sheila said...

Eliz - Its Diet Coke Plus. Its packaging is blue.

Webmiztris - Well, its made its way to Missouri. So, although I don't know where you live, I'm sure its closer to you than you think. You know, maybe fall of 2008!

wait - serious?

vitemins in pop?

Is it available all over or just in specialty stores?

Im gonna have to watch for it so i can try it.

it still tates good, right?

Sheila said...

Blue - its available all over down here. I think it tastes decent enough to drink it. Diet Coke will always be #1 to me, but this is a close second.

Ok I will have to give it a shot.
