Coke keeps you thin alright, but not coca-cola.

I have to say in complete honesty, this is about how I use coca cola (as an adult)

Don't get it very often, but here and there it is nice to have one of those small serving cans (90 cals) as a break. Even a full can today is only about 150 cal. That isn't a lot of calories (think about how much food you actually get in of those 100 calorie "smart packs" for many snacks).

A heck of a lot better (calwise) than, say, two cookies or a muffin or just about any snack in an honest portion.

I do remember really liking coca cola as a kid, and would easily drink a full can. I was no match for the industrial formulation scientists, and am reasonably certain that a lot of childhood obesity can be traced to the sugar in coke.

In any case, my point is that a small can of coke isn't a terribly unreasonable thing calorie-wise for most adults. Yes fiber, satiety and all that....I think that a lot of times a short burst of sweetness is a better hold-you-over snack than popular nutrition culture says it is (to me, at least).

Thank you for your honesty.

So it's like, enjoy your high cal./fat/bad-shit treats and snacks in moderation and/or as part of a healthy lifestyle and you'll be alright or something.

Holy shit, you're right.

Yeah, but that was a 6oz bottle with less sugar (cane sugar, at that) and a higher level of caffeine.

'personal size bottle' is half what a can is today. So this commercial's actually accurate, I would totally drink a coke a day if it were 75 calories and made with sugar and not HFCS.

cause that corn syrup is bad for you:

They make a Pepsi or some shit with real sugar these days. I drink Diet 99% of the time because regular leaves this sugary film or something on my teeth kind of deal. Only bad thing about diet is the bloating.

Pepsi Next is pretty awesome though, not sure what kind of sugar is in it. No bloating too.
