Loser of the Week

You have a $760,000 endorsement deal with Coca Cola so you rock up to a press conference sipping a can of Pepsi. Hmm, that’s a ditching right there Ronaldinho.

Is This The Real Thing?

We're rich!!!

Imagine this loons, you buy a box of knick knacks for $5. Included in your box of crap is a very old unsigned Palmer Union Oil Co stock certificate. No biggie except for the fact that Palmer Union Oil Company’s successor is none  other than Coca Cola. So anywho, Tony Marohn signs his name on it and then contacts Coca Cola requesting either 1.8 million worth of shares in the company, or a $130 million stake. Coke were understandably WTFing and refused to acknowledge the share. Sadly Mr Marohn died in 2008 but his family are continuing the fight, saying that they are entitled to the shares as Marohn’s signature is on the certificate.

Be Gone Cancer Causing Chemicals In Pepsi and Coke

No cause for alarm people but Pepsi and Coca Cola lovers might want to turn their heads away for this one. Seems both drink companies have announced they will be cutting the levels of chemicals in their caramel coloring in order to avoid having to put a “cancer warning” on their drink’s labels. Oh dear, evidently there is way too much 4-MEI (carcinogen) in the coloring  which means under California laws they either have to reduce the levels or whack a warning sticker on their products . Those damn lab mice and their tumors!!!!! By the way Pepsi and Coke both are adamant their drinks are safe.

Want sauce with that?

So That’s Why All The Secrecy

Man, this home brew Coke recipe is amazing

Hey, remember last week when Coca Colas secret recipe was revealed and I said “wow, I didn’t know Coke contained alcohol”. Yeah, well about that, seems I wasn’t the only one surprised. Introducing the $1.2 billion class action by Israeli Muslims,  Advs. Hani Tannus, Ofir Cohen, and Mahmud Machjana . They are seeking  compo for each Muslim in Israel (that’s 1.2 million) for the mental anguish caused by Coca Cola’s misleading ways . Hello, Muslims are forbidden from drinking alcohol, that’s mental anguish right there. The suit reads in part “This is one of the greatest deceptions in the history of consumer affairs, when a company ignores the existence of alcohol as an ingredient despite being aware that the Muslim world abstains from products like these. This is a very serious matter and it certainly won’t be the last in the world in light of the fraud.”
Oh boy, wait until the moms of America unite with their class action. Brockovich will be busy!

Make Your Own Coke

Hmm, I think I might make a gallon of Coca Cola tonight

For over a century the recipe for Coca-Cola has been one of the most heavily guarded secrets ( if you don’t include the Colonel’s secret herbs and spices). So secretive in fact that only two Coca-Cola Amatil executives in the world know the exact recipe. Well that’s no longer the case  since a group published the rumored REAL recipe on their website. Seems about 40 years ago  the Atlanta Journal-Constitution published a photo of a book containing a hand-written replica of the original recipe in 1979. Gosh, right there under our noses!

Psst Sheez, and here I was thinking it was just full of sugar! Good lord, did I spy alcohol on the list?  Me thinks it would just easier to buy it ready made.

The secret recipe

Fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP
Citric acid 3 oz
Caffeine 1oz
Sugar 30 (quantity unknown)
Water 2.5 gal
Lime juice 2 pints 1 qrt
Vanilla 1oz
Caramel 1.5oz or more to color

7X flavor (use 2oz of flavor to 5 gals syrup):
Alcohol 8oz
Orange oil 20 drops
Lemon oil 30 drops
Nutmeg oil 10 drops
Coriander 5 drops
Neroli 10 drops
Cinnamon 10 drops

Exploding OJ

Man suing Coca Cola over exploding orange juiceOK people here’s the thing, evidently fermented orange juice can explode (who knew?). Ming Fu Hu, a Chinese immigrant, who owns a drink bar in New Zealand, is suing Coca-Cola after a bottle of Keri orange juice exploded and hit him in the eye, causing permanent damage.Coca Cola admitted the 2.4 litre bottle exploded but lawyers for the company say they have no liability because it had fermented (despite it still being within it’s used by date). As a nice old peace offering Coca Cola sent Mr Hu a case of Keri juice and a grocery voucher worth $200.Enter race card.Hmm, Mr Hu’s lawyer said “My client is a Chinese immigrant and if the same thing happened to a Kiwi in China we would expect the Chinese company to step up to the plate, admit its mistake and help make the victim whole again.” (really?).  Oh dear, I don’t think this will be going away in a hurry.
