Day 44

Guru Taxi and the Nectar Confused, exhausted, fat, grumpy, spent, expanded, wiser, drained, sugared, lonely, homesick, vitamin deficient, hungry and in need of a damn good snuggle.

Day 50

Day 51

Cokay Such is the success of the Coca Cola ubiquitous marketing strategy that the word ‘coke’ is the 2nd most recognizable word across all languages on this planet.

Day 52-53

Home savoury home The prize for the most questionable soft drink ever made has to be ‘Kidsbeer’. This is the beverage equivalent of candy cigarettes for children.

Day 56

The Sugar Free Athlete Coca Cola have around 650 products in their cannon of work. I wonder what percentage of these contain fructose? I might do the math.

Day 58

Shugar Shores ‘Sugar’ and ‘sure’ are the only two words in the English language that are spelt with ‘su’ but pronounced ‘shu’. ‘Shugar Shores’ would be a terrifically bad name for a television drama series set in a North Queensland coastal town about a family of sugar cane farmers.
