Coca-Cola C2

Now Coke’s going low-carb. The marketing pitch is rather stirring: “Introducing Coca-Cola C2… for people who don’t compromise. It’s not about what you can’t have. It’s about getting what you want.”

I feel inspired! I want not to drink low-carb Coke!

[Thanks Benson, who forwarded this to me.]

  1. I took part in some testing for this product last year. Just be grateful they didn’t go with the original name, although the original print marketing was far less carb-centric.

    (I’d say more, but the $5 I was paid to spew about how much I hated the name/advertising came with a “tell anyone and we’ll make you drink it” threat…)

C2 (I think they should go for some Dynamite slogan, but what do I know) just has a higher spike to it. *LOADS* better than Diet Coke (which, going really weird, makes me think Alkaline.)

    If we get C2 at work, I’d drink it over regular coke for a few weeks to see how well it settles.

  3. I bought an 8 pack to bring to work. Last week I had the worst case of diharreha that I’ve had since I was 10, and the only thing I can attribute it to is drinking 3 of those C2’s. If that’s not enough, I convinced myself that it wasn’t the drink it was something I ate last week. Came in today (monday) i’ve had 2 already (i’m a soda-holic) and my stomach is feeling all rumbly again. The coke? It has to be….
