I’ve gone 28 days without any Diet Coke and I think I’m handling it pretty well.
But just hypothetically, let’s say I was really craving some sort of carbonated beverage that had plenty of caffeine in it, comes in a can and is ludicrously bad for you. What do I turn to? This week I’ve decided to test the alternatives:
1. Red Bull
Red Bull is one of those drinks that mysteriously has no flavour assigned to it; it’s just ‘You’re-going-to-be-really-hyper’ flavoured. It gives a good kick but also tastes a bit like acidic sherbet and made the world look like this:
Crossing off the list.
This makes me feel sporty. And active. But I don’t do any sports so I feel like a tosser drinking it.
3. Lipton Iced Tea
Where do I begin? Even the logo annoys me; it looks like toothpaste. People that don’t understand the difference between Pepsi and Coke you clearly have something wrong with you and should consider being seen by a specialist.
5. Rubicon Guava
“Real” fruit! This is practically healthy. Packed with all kinds of sugary goodness as well. A good alternative but hard to find…
My old friend, you have saved me in many situations in the past. But this is a hole you can not fill.
“What a day! I am dying for a large glass of water.” said no student ever.
Judging by these, the future is bleak. But perhaps I’ve missed a golden gem that can satisfy my neurotic beverage needs? I am desperate for suggestions… and make them fast, my patience is waning!
