Every year on July 11th, I scramble to get to 7-Eleven to pick up a free Slurpee. Then I go to another, and then another. The Slurpees they give you are tiny so it takes a few to really satisfy. This year, 7-Eleven has something special going on a month before their yearly promotion. They’re introducing a Slurpee that can have two different flavors in the same cup!
Pepsico made waves last month as they unveiled their “Skinny Can” for Diet Pepsi. Now Pepsi has revealed a new container, but this one is getting press for the right reasons. Pepsi’s new plastic bottle is completely made out of plant material.
The container is the world’s first 100% plant-based PET bottle, and is actually made of switch grass, pine bark, corn husks and a variety of other natural materials. The bottle is also 100% recyclable and petroleum-free. While I haven’t held the bottle yet, Pepsi reports that the bottle feels and protects the bottle the same way as the old plastic version.
I’m taking a poll: On a daily basis, do you drink carbonated or uncarbonated beverages with your meals?
I grew up drinking pop (or soda) but have since made the switch to water only. On slight occasion, I’ll have a craving for a sip of coke but I have found that lately I can’t even tolerate a whole glass anymore. I made the switch to water using steps similar to the ones you’ll find in this guide.
Alright so what is up with soda pop containing vitamins and minerals? I just don’t’ understand how this is possible. I mean has the world actually come to this?
Of course I can’t go a day without some sort of caffeine intake, so I decided to try out Diet Coke Plus. The “plus” stands for added vitamins and minerals. I must say I don’t really like it. It might just be some sort of mental thing, but I think the taste of this soda is different from just the ordinary Diet Coke. It seems a bit sweeter and watered down.
Have any of you tried this new product? What do you think? How you feel about this whole new trend of trying to make soda healthy?Sarah at Slashfood is equally addicted to caffeine, but didn’t have as much of an aversion to this “plus” product.
