Coffee and Coke???


Recommended Posts

Yep, thats right! Coca-Cola Blak, a sort of recent flavor from coke, actually is a fusion of Coffee and Coke! I bought some it not knowing what it was, but to try it anyway. I opened it and took a couple gulps. I wasn't sure if I liked it or not... then I really tasted the coffee, and to my surprise, I REALLY like the stuff! It is crazy what they come up with!

ahmen to that!! I've tried coke zero, Diet coke, diet coke with splenda, Iraqi Coke, Canadian Coke, Mexican Coke, Korean Coke, and several different countries (Coke tastes different in different countries), and I have to say that a glass bottle of American Coke is the best drink in the world. The burn, the taste, and everything about it is excellent! all the diets have a horrendous taste or after taste, and the Coke Zeros all have that aspertain (Sp) in them that gives me migrains. Nope, it's Coca-Cola Classic for me!!

Aspartame. I think. ^_^

 

I only drink colas when they've got liquor in them. Ginger ale occasionally, but otherwise, I prefer water, OJ, or watered down cranberry juice to any kind of soda. I mean, soda is a nice treat, but this is what it does to your body... :shock:

 

Have you ever wondered why Coke comes with a smile? It’s because it gets you high. They took the cocaine out almost a hundred years ago. You know why? It was redundant.

 

In The First 10 minutes: 10 teaspoons of sugar hit your system. (100% of your recommended daily intake.) You don’t immediately vomit from the overwhelming sweetness because phosphoric acid cuts the flavor allowing you to keep it down.

 

20 minutes: Your blood sugar spikes, causing an insulin burst. Your liver responds to this by turning any sugar it can get its hands on into fat (There’s plenty of that at this particular moment).

 

40 minutes: Caffeine absorption is complete. Your pupils dilate, your blood pressure rises, as a response your livers dumps more sugar into your bloodstream. The adenosine receptors in your brain are now blocked preventing drowsiness.

 

45 minutes: Your body ups your dopamine production stimulating the pleasure centers of your brain. This is physically the same way heroin works, by the way.

 

>60 minutes: The phosphoric acid binds calcium, magnesium and zinc in your lower intestine, providing a further boost in metabolism. This is compounded by high doses of sugar and artificial sweeteners also increasing the urinary excretion of calcium.

 

>60 Minutes: The caffeine’s diuretic properties come into play. (It makes you have to pee.) It is now assured that you’ll evacuate the bonded calcium, magnesium and zinc that was headed to your bones as well as sodium, electrolyte and water.

 

>60 minutes: As the rave inside of you dies down you’ll start to have a sugar crash. You may become irritable and/or sluggish. You’ve also now, literally, pissed away all the water that was in the Coke. But not before infusing it with valuable nutrients your body could have used for things like even having the ability to hydrate your system or build strong bones and teeth.

 

This will all be followed by a caffeine crash in the next few hours. (As little as two if you’re a smoker.) But, hey, have another Coke, it’ll make you feel better.

 

*FYI: The Coke itself is not the enemy, here. It’s the dynamic combo of massive sugar doses combined with caffeine and phosphoric acid. Things which are found in almost all soda.

 

I also had a practicing MD and member of The American College of Surgeons consult on this article about some blood chemistry issues. He mainly just looked over the article after I had written it and, after correcting a few time line issues, said that it was on the up and up.

There was a little truck giving out free bottles of Coca-Cola Black on my campus in the wintertime. It irritated the professors because students kept drinking in class. It took me the whole bottle to get used to the mixture.

Everything is bad for you. Juice has enough sugar in it to rot your teeth, water will eventually be proven to give you something bad. I enjoy my life, I exersise as much as possible, I try to eat sensibly, and I quit smoking two years ago. Coke is my last and greatest vice. There are many more things out there that are a lot worse. Coke may be the death of me, but I'm pretty sure the carcinogen I work with on a daily basis will get me first.
