I Want My Coke Black


As I was sipping my cup of coffee this morning, I realized that it was a little more bitter than I'm used to. It was because I was using a larger mug, and therefore, my standard measurements of creamer and Sweet & Low didn't have the same effect on the larger amount of coffee.

This led me to wonder...I'm not quite sure how...why we don't get to sweeten soft drinks to our particular likeness. There are many people out there who say that Coke is too sweet for them, or that Pepsi is better because it's a little sweeter.

How about Coke served black, an unsweetened or lightly sweetened formula that you have to add sweetener too, just like coffee. Therefore, you can have your Coke just the way you like it.

And with ethanol demand driving corn prices up, the product would be cheaper to produce as it would require less/no corn syrup. Your brilliance shines through one again!
