Coke apparently is pretty smug about the fact that they are a bunch of lying fuckers.

Read this if you read the VCoke Spam we got earlier this year.

This is pretty low. I'm bothered by the fact that they did it, and I'm even more bothered by the fact that I think that Coke was behind the message appearing on our board in the first place.

Fuck Coke. Assholes.

Last year, I was on my own for the first time and needed to buy food, and at the time I was a huge Coke addict (Coca-Cola, of course...). But, water and juice were so much cheaper, I bought it instead. After a summer of juice, I finally had a taste of Coke... and it was AWFUL. So artificially sweet and disgusting. Other than one taste, I haven't had any cola (and thus no caffiene) for over a year.

I feel my health has improved as a result, but I always felt bad about giving it up because I had previously criticized friends who were "too good" for soda. Also, coming from Georgia, I had always seen Coke as a humble company sponsoring many worthy causes, and you don't see, say, Tropicana sponsoring the Special Olympics and Paralympics.

Needless to say, I've found out about many ways the Coke company has screwed over competitors and consumers, including the one the good Guru just posted. As a result I've not felt so bad about it.

I urge everyone else to try giving up cola for a short while, and see if it can improve your life instead of improving the companies' profit margins.

Geez, I would, but there's like eight cases of Shasta Cherry Cola next to the fridge, wanting...beckoning...and no matter how many I drink, the cases keep magically re-appearing.

It's as mysterious as the moving ring steps before an Undertaker match, yup...

Huh, I somehow seem to have missed whatever little scrap occurred here. Vanilla Coke tastes like FUCKING CRAP though. I just wanted to shout that from the rooftops.

I seem to be too much of an addict to quit soda entirely, but a couple of years ago, I switched from regular to diet, and lost 20 pounds like it was no thang.

Anyway, do you really think Coke was behind that post? It means one of two things: Either Coke is pathetic and literally has people scouring the internet to post anywhere, or, you guys are big enough to actually be noticed.

I encourage everyone to give up soda AND fast food for a while. I've always been a gym fanatic, and at six feet, 215 pounds, I had plenty of mass, but had trouble with definition. I gave up fast food in January to trim down a little for my wedding, and by May I lost at least 15 pounds of fat and gained more mass...and got ripped. My exercise routine staying constant, mind you.

Of course, my new bride is managing to stuff me full of every great food imaginable, making it a little tougher to keep the flab off! :)

Geez, I don't remember any Coke shenanigans. Did you zap them before I saw them?

My opinion of Vanilla Coke, which I've said many times before so you're not imagining it if you're feeling I'm repeating myself, is the COLDER it is the BETTER it is. Still, if you want creme soda, go buy some creme soda. Or A&W Sparkling Vanilla, I like that one a lot.

Being a northerner, I am well versed on the practice of drinking sodas warm, and I can vouch that warm Vanilla Coke is NOT very enjoyable.

It's good if it's warm and flat, though.

I was drinking Coke a lot and then last year for Lent, I gave it up altogether, which was tough. Now I barely drink pop, except for the occasional Dr.Pepper(man, that's a good drink).

I tried Vanilla Coke at a friend's place not too long ago, and to me it tasted just like an ice cream float, without the ice cream. Kinda nice, actually.

But the marketing campaign-yeah, that's just poor.

There's like 16 teaspoons of sugar in the average can of pop(or soda, depending on where you live). That's something to think about!

Because when it's FROZEN, you can line up ten bottles of it and go turkey-bowling without making a mess.
Coke is Coke. Some like it, some don't. But if you want REAL flavored Coke, you do what I do -- go to a restaurant that has Torani syrup and have them MIX a flavored Coke. A mixed Vanilla or Cherry Coke is lightyears ahead of any grocery-store version.

I killed the thread after about 4 views. Actually, come to think of it, probably no one saw the initial spam. It still pisses me off though.

Some poster decided on their first post to mention the VCLOUNGE.com web site and say "Hey whats the dealio with this?" like they were all intrigued.

I edited the post to say "I am a lame pathetic spam troll".

I had the opportunity to try some of this "Vanilla Coke." After just a few sips of the stuff I came to the conclusion that it needed more sugar.

*BLAAAARRRFF!*

Like I said, needs more sugar.

This is why I drink Pepsi.

Coke is just not for drinking anymore. Along with the following uses, I've also heard it will dissolve kidney stones, at least round off the edges making them easier to pass.

Another urban legend. Interesting how these are popping up over the course of a week, no?

This story has basically been fitted to Pepsi, Dr. Pepper and just about any other brand of popular soda. Usually the person tells the story to fit in with whatever brand he or she doesn't like (or repeats the story told to them by someone with a preference).
