By: |

Following a successful launch in Great Britain, new and improved Coca-Cola Zero Sugar is now available in Ireland, replacing Coca-Cola Zero. The drink looks and tastes even more like Coca-Cola Classic, but without sugar. This month we launched Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, a new and improved sugar free cola. The recipe brings Coca-Cola Zero Sugar closer to the taste of original Coca-Cola Classic, but without sugar, and is supported by a strong marketing

We’re listening to consumers and taking action to reduce sugar - a tax won’t help

By: |

The UK Government’s plan to impose a tax on soft drinks containing sugar made headlines after it was announced in the Budget in March. People are curious about what Coca-Cola Great Britain thinks of the proposal; I get asked about it a lot - at work and also at home with friends and family. While we agree with the Government that obesity rates are too high and need to be reduced, we do not believe additional taxes are the solution. There is no reliable

CSI Coca-Cola: Investigating The Investigators

By: |

One of the perks of writing for The Coca-Cola Company, besides the free drinks, is getting to access parts of the company you never knew existed. When Leopoldo Becerra, quality manager for Coca-Cola Europe, casually referred to the Brussels-based Quality Assurance team as "the Coca-Cola CSI team," the nickname certainly caught my attention.  I took the opportunity of a meeting in Brussels the following

Is it true that if you leave a tooth/piece of meat/2p coin in a glass of Coca‑Cola overnight it will totally dissolve?

This is a popular urban legend, and totally untrue. Coca‑Cola will not dissolve teeth or meat overnight. There is a small amount of edible acid present in many foods, including fruit juices and soft drinks such as Coca‑Cola, but these foods are not acidic enough to harm your body tissues - in fact, your own natural stomach acid is more acidic. Any food or drink that contains sugars and starches, including calorific sparkling drinks, can

Can Coca‑Cola be used as a household cleaner?

This rumour has taken on many forms, claiming that Coca‑Cola, due to its acidic nature, can be used to clean toilets and corrosion from car batteries, loosen a rusted bolt and remove rust spots from car bumpers, remove grease from clothing, clean road haze from windshields, cook a steak, dissolve teeth and bake a moist ham.
