Coke releases fad product with half the calories and all the marketing bullshit
I’ve little sympathy for stupid people, and all those who kneel at the altar of “carbs are the devil” are stupid people. For those who missed out on nutrition class in high school, carbohydrates are a dietary requirement for sustaining life. But there’s no harm in reducing your caloric intake, especially for stupid Americans.
Since C2 contains both the artificial sweetener aspartame, AND the natural sweetener ‘high fructose corn syrup’ I’ll bet I can guess the secret formula:
C2 = Coke + Diet Coke
Much like the “Clear” fad that brought us more silliness in the form of such products as “Crystal Pepsi“, C2 will be gone just as quickly, once the Atkins crowd come out of their low-blood-sugar comas. Ah well, at least it all has caffeine in it, so it’s not all bad.
Safety Tip: Please note the difference between C2 and C4. One of them is bad for you.
[Jan 2010 Update] C2 was eventually replaced by Coke Zero, a zero calorie equivalent which tastes more like original Coca-Cola than Diet Coke.
