Coke plans to market Fizzy Milk

Take some quantity of milk, add sparkling water, fruit juice, a heap of sugar and something to keep it from spoiling unrefrigerated for several months and you've got Coke's newest beverage VIO, which they appear to be marketing as something healthy and natural.

This VIO is currently being tested in NY natural food stores and have no doubt that dumb ass people will be pouring this crap into their kids thinking that it's a reasonable alternative to milk for their sugar addicted children. An 8oz container can of Citrus Burst, Peach Mango, Tropical Colada or Very Berry sports a very cola like 26 grams of sugar yet has only a bit of vitamin C, Calcium and less than 1/8 the protein of real milk.

If they want to sell this shit that's their business but if they dare to market this as a health drink as it looks like they are doing in their tests, there should be outrage. What's next energy milk with ephedra and caffeine?Recommend this Post

No kidding. Not only is it undoubtedly not a "health drink", it doesn't even sound like it would taste good.
