I'm on the fence. I mean, there's really nothing wrong with a nice cold Coke
to satiate your thirst. But we've all been drinking cola-flavored beverages
for so long I think they've become a "hammer," so to speak. Can't hurt to
shake things up a bit.

Let's be real here: if you're thirsty, you should be drinking water. Coffee
or teas are more effective at delivering caffeine. And who wants to sit down
to a big steak dinner with a glass of Cola? A nice red wine is a much better
tool for the job. Horses for courses, that's my take.

Seems to me the carbonated beverage manufacturers are just starting to
realize that they can flavor their drinks with something other than the
cola-blend that Angelo Mariani invented in 1863!
