Via Slashfood and a bunch of other blogs, Coca Cola will be releasing a fizzy milk-based drink in such flavors as Citrus Burst, Peach Mango, Very Berry and Tropical Colada. Oddly enough I was discussing the idea of fizzy milk with some friends while riding back from a lovely wedding in the Catskills on Sunday. It’s like I’m soda psychic. But mostly we were talking about whether or not it was gross. Immediate reaction: yes. Fizzy. Milk. Gross. But then I thought….what about like…a cream soda? Back in college I had my first cream soda down in Lone Pine Tavern (woo Dartmouth). I ordered it out of curiosity and was shockingly pleased. Then the feeling of pleased turned more into a feeling of oh wow this is delicious. Then a day later I found myself craving the oddly fizzy creaminess. So I’m gonna go ahead and say that these things might be darn good. The only drawback I can see is that they can apparently be drunk at room temperature. Now that’s just gross.

Witness also the appeal of a Coke float (vanilla ice cream, chocolate syrup, and, of course, Coke).

Furthering America’s love affair with too many calories in liquid form (as if eating a steak weren’t bad enough).

we got these at work the other day… and (stupidly) before we really read the label we gave them a gentle shake, thinking, ‘sweet, morning milkshake’… and opened. fizzy pina colada-watery-milk everywhere. they’re pretty gross.
