The end of the world got a little closer today with the discovery of “Green Tea Coke.”


We love green tea, and we love our soda pop — but we drink soda for the decadent taste and we drink our tea to counteract the bad behavior in the soda — so mixing green tea with Coke is like drinking nothing… or drinking Coke Blak and a spoonful of baking soda.

In Japan, you can soon have your cola flavoured with green tea or basil. Coca Cola (Japan) Co. spokesman Katsuya Sato said green tea-flavoured Coca-Cola will hit Japanese stores June 28.

Sato says it contains tea antioxidants called catechins, leaves a slight green tea aftertaste and is mainly targeted at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s.

What’s next?

Midol Diet Pepsi?

Prozac Dr. Pepper?

High Fiber Mountain Dew?

When will this mixing madness end?

    I, for one, will welcome our new High Fiber Vitamin C Mountain Dew.
    I still have the horrible taste of Blak in my mouth, to some extent.:)
    I thought it couldn’t get worse when they added vitamins to diet coke. Guess I was wrong:)

  2. Ha! I guess you’re the perfect person for high-fiber soda, Gordon! You must be right in the middle of somebody’s mainstream demographic! It does seem like adding healthy bits to soda pop would be a good idea, but I can’t remember one example where it didn’t come off as anything more than a gimmick.

    I am still thinking whether I should be jubilant or indifferent…
