‘Share a Coke With Obesity’ Bottle Gets Real About Effects of Drinking Soda

Alex Bogusky is trying to take some of the zen out of Coke’s iconic “Hilltop” ad. Not only has their silence been bought, but they now have effectively become marketing arms of the Coca-Cola corporation. The worst offenders, which took the two top spots for amount of sugar in a drink, were Starbucks grape and apple mulled drinks, which contained 25 and 22 teaspoons of sugar each in its venti, or 20-ounce, size.

What’s your take on Coke’s ad — is the company doing a public service by encouraging its customers to be physically active? Faced with slick, multi-million pound marketing, perhaps slick marketing is the only way to fight back? Philadelphia and Berkeley have shown communities across the country that taxes on sugary drinks are a viable way to recoup industry profits for important community priorities and alert residents to health harms from excessive sugar.

He had nothing to eat just the coke zero. But if you don’t distinguish what type you’re talking about, your level of understanding is irrelevant. Soda kwa? Companies are certainly free to sell whatever they want.
