How about Moxie, or Ginger Beer? We need those more than Mango 7-Up.

I didn’t realize this was the NYer’s humor article until about 4 paragraphs in. Cola marketing is where branding most pointedly becomes self-satire.

Funny thing; i was at club med in december where it was serve yourself at teh drinks fountain. I actually liked 50% diet 50% full fat coke … so mid coke has at least one customer

So I’m not the only one who calls it “full fat coke” even though there’s no fat in it. hmmm.
