Yes, This is Real: Would You Like a Coke?

Would you like a Coke?

Can I really have a regular Coke?

Yes. But you might spring for something with a few more bells and whistles.

How about a Lipton Diet Sparking Green Tea with Strawberry Kiwi? Yes, this is real.

If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s over-modified products. Call me a purist, but there is just something chemical about that. I can’t even imagine what it would taste like.

Another over-modified product that drives me crazy is Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.

Now, in Lipton’s product there were six modifiers: Diet, Sparking, Green, Tea, Strawberry and Kiwi. You may look at Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper and think, “Oh, there are only four modifiers.” Wrong. You must account for Dr. Pepper’s 23 flavors, thus a total of 27.

I think I’ll stick to water for now.
