Why Did Coca-Cola Make a Healthier Coke?

Eww to infinity.

Almost want to forgive Pepsi for that Kendall Jenner stunt. According to Coca-Cola, Coke Plus is their “healthiest soft drink” ever.

The no-calorie beverage contains five grams of indigestible dextrin – a source of dietary fiber – per 470-ml bottle. Coca-Cola Japan is marketing Coca-Cola Plus, which features great Coca-Cola taste plus functional benefits, to health- and taste-conscious consumers 40 and older as a beverage to enjoy with food.

Can someone tell the coke execs that we’re here for a good time and not a long time.

Drinking one Coca-Cola Plus per day with food will help suppress fat absorption and help moderate the levels of triglycerides in the blood after eating.

Actually, scratch that. Maybe they’re onto something here.

India’s Vishnu Manohar cooked for 53 straight hours this weekend, a new Guinness record.

When you think about it, there may be Nigerians who have held longer undocumented 'cooking marathons'. Imagine the caterers who are prepping for a 5000 person wedding at TBS, they'd definitely start cooking/prepping more than 48 hours before.
