So, I rewarded myself today with a diet coke….but I could not find a regular diet coke anywhere, so i grabbed this interestingly disturbing new product. Diet Coke Plus… Apparently Coca Cola is attempting to get into the health concious market by adding vitamins to it's product.
I looked at the label…not too many vitamins added….
Niacin, B6 and B12, Magnesium and Zinc. thats all folks.
It tastes essentially like regular old Diet Coke, which is a good thing. I suppose it isn't important, as the value of those nutrients is not much, but I somehow find the idea of inserting vitamins into junk food ridiculous.
I drink Diet Coke as a treat, not as a regular thing, so I don't expect it to have vitamins/minerals…
I'll be curious to find out if it boosts sales….because frankly speaking….the stuff is bad for people….it is….and adding magnesium and vitamin B12 in minute amounts is not changing the fact that it's a product that really is junk food.
