Ye flippin caffeinated gods!

Apparently Coca-Cola® has decided to create a new Coke beverage called Blak. The full press release is here but essentially it is Original Coke mixed with, get your caffeine receptors ready, coffee extract. It will have about half the calories of regular Coke and be directed squarely at the latte drinking Gen X. I don't know about you but my curiosity is piqued. They are set to roll it out in France (national motto: "Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité!" which I think translates to "We surrender!") next month and then globally soon thereafter. I would read how the French review it but I don't think I trust the taste of people who like snails and Jerry Lewis. I expect to see it on store shelves here in Texas in 6 months pending the French not saying it tastes like Pepé Le Pew's ass.

In other news, I have dropped back from a 42 inch waist on my pants to a 38 inch waist which is super cool. Yay GNC! The energy boost is worth it even without weight loss. It is like having a caffeine drip all day long.

I would just like to mention that my hubby has been drinking his Coke like this for EVER. He has this theory that whenever he does something, the world will catch up usually by the next year. We get married, our friends the next year. We got pregnant, our friends now want babies. He drinks Coke and coffee, CocaCola capitalizes on it. Such a trendsetter he is!

Perhaps next year the world will be drinking Coke and Cranberry juice. That's how I do it.
