Coca Cola sued over VitaminWater

Coca Cola is being sued over their deceptive claims that their VitaminWater line is healthy.

Defense? Rescue? Energy? Endurance?

How about water, cane sugar and fructose? These are the first three ingredients listed, and if you didn't know, ingredients are listed in descending order of predominance by weight. That means that VitaminWater is mainly composed of water, cane sugar and fructose (another form of sugar).

Newsflash, VitaminWater is not good for you.

Really, all you have to do is look at the nutritional info and price to know that it's a big waste of money.

Sugar-wise, one bottle = 2 bottles of Coke
Price-wise, one bottle = $2.50

The lesson is: if you want to drink water, don't spend $2.50 to drink something that is worse than drinking tap water.
If you do drink tap water, let it run cold for a minute or two first to flush the system, especially if you live in an old Toronto home.

Santé! Cheers! Prost!
