What do you think?

Umm no, still a bunch of garbage. I mean for heaven sakes "cane sugar", yeah that will do you real good. I mean if you want a flavored drink, make a smoothie or protein shake.

I am going to put out a new drink for the health-conscious Americans. I will call it "TASTEE BROWN WATER". It will really just be cola, but I will market it as "a flavored beverage with a proprietary blend of natural energy boosters". The natural energy boosters will be caffeine and sugar, but I think it will sell.

For the record, I didn't really think it was suddenly healthy to drink.. just found it interesting.

Soda is good! I like Stop & Shop Brand Strawberry and Grape Soda. You math guys can figure out how many carbs are in there. It's a massive 130 calories per 8oz serving. ALL the carbs are from sugar! That's a man's drink. Smoothies are gay!

"Can I get a smoothie, please?" = gay

"Can I get soda, please?" = manly

Vodka is 100 calories/1.5oz. shot.

"Can I get a smoothie, please?" = gay

"Can I get a soda, please?" = girly

"Give me a vodka." = manly

I prefer not to drink calories at all (barely make an exception for a protein shake). Give me a water any day.

Well, except for a Hot Chocolate at Cora's. I love the whipped cream on top smothered in cocoa powder. That's my one caloric drink of the week.

Ordering a vodka = girly

Taking the bottle of Wild Turkey from behind the bar, smashing the top off, and drinking along with glass shards = manly

...Looks like someone at a British marketing firm is getting a pay raise and a pat on the back.

"Give me a vodka, sir." = manly
"Give me a backrub, sir." = homoerotic

Honestly, if you can forget about ethanol-induced rhabdomyolysis and the possibility of alcohol poisoning for a second, it's hard to disagree: at 7 calories per gram, alcohol is the ultimate tool for the bulking bodybuilder. Expect products like "Skyy Fit" to hit the shelves within the season.....

Eh..Still kinda girly

Grabbing the hot bartender's ass, while her boyfriend is at the other end of the bar, then kicking his ass for trying to c**k block you, then grabbing a bottle of whiskey from behind the bar and pounding it down, followed by breaking the end of the bottle on her boyfriends head, who is already on the ground crying, so you're left with a nice, sharp weapon and then offering anyone else who wants to f*** with you to a fight - badass

A couple things....

Gotta give it up to Pepsi for finally ditching high fructose corn syrup. Though a token effort considering its only in 1 product being offered for a limited time in Europe only.

Its actually quite a slap in the face to US consumers. Pepsi knows that the general masses in the US still dont really understand just how bad HFCS is for us. Thus it wouldnt go over well....which is why its in Europe for sure.

Just like how practically every model of car in Europe can be bought with a diesel engine, for better mileage. In the US diesels are rare, unless youre buying a huge work truck, in which case it still gets crappy mileage.

Corporations are calling the US stupid, even ones that are US based.

^^ News flash man. A very large portion of the US is stupid. Not saying there aren't idiots in Europe, but there seems to be more cocky misinformed on top of the world idiots in the US.

It's not good to drink 6 cans of pop a day, but I would hate to go through life making a protein shake every time I wanted a flavored drink.

Soda is a power drink. I'd hate to be small and not drink soda.
