Obama Inaugural Soda

If you did not get a chance to brave the cold winds of change in the Front Row of Washington D.C., you can still toast the new President with a drink made in his own name.!

Obama Soda is still available in 2 great flavors!
Buy both, crack 'em open with your best bud, and drink down the taste of change.

Can we really enjoy a soda with President Obama's face on the bottle?!

So, who IS this great soda manufacturer?
Pepsi? Coca Cola?
No and Nope.
Obama Soda is brought to you EXCLUSIVELY by Jones Soda...the coolest soda ever.

Drink 'em and weep! :)

Will rising Coke and Pepsi prices force alternative sodas?

Soda prices are rising along with everything else in this economy. When you look at your budget, and try to figure out how you will make ends meet this month, will you have to start cutting out some of your 'vices'?

I have friends who crack open a Pepsi as soon as they get out of bed. By the time they are in the office, they are on their third soda.

With soda prices rising, how important is that soda to you?
If it IS important, does it have to be a Pepsi? Do you insist on Coca Cola in your home? Do you look at store brand soda and sneer?

When I was single, I bought store brand often. The rule was 'all flavors OK except their Cola.'
And no root beer. I just didn't like root beer. But it was a low cost way to keep soda in the house, and it worked for me.

Now, there are other low cost ways to keep soda in the house...and these days you even get control over what the soda tastes like. (As I alluded to above, store brand cola just tasted lousy to me.)

See here:

Make fresh seltzer as fizzy as you like it for just 17 cents a liter with a Soda-Club seltzer maker! No more schlepping, storing and recycling cases of bottles from the store. Soda-Club carbonators make 110 liters before exchanging door-to-door.

You control the taste, you control how much you have, and your costs are controlled with this major cost reduction.

Some people simply will not give up soda. Now you don't have to.

How Much Do You Hate Coca Cola?

KillerCoke.org may not drive very large rallies...but they sure know they don't like Coca Cola.

Last year I was trying to find results for a rally that Killer Coke was to hold in New York City. There was no news at all, and I was left to assume that their plans went flat. No fizz.

Mind you, Killer Coke is NOT a Pro Wrestler. Nor is Killer Coke a new kind of crack cocaine. Killer Coke is a website dedicated to trying to hold Coca Cola responsible for the henious crimes they commit...especially in Columbia South America.

Their home page boasts some articles you can read, like:
Dietblog, "Diet Coke Plus Faces FDA Warning,"

Associated Press, "FDA warns Coca-Cola over nutritional claims," By Mattew Perrone, December 24, 2008

China.org.cn, "Lawyers, academics praise students' Coca Cola probe," By Gregor Kneussel and John Sexton, December 31, 2008

As a fundraiser, they even sell the 'Unthinkable, Undrinakle' T-shirt!

Don't misunderstand, it's not like they hate Coca Cola because they prefer Pepsi Cola. It's because they think Coke has serious Human Rights issues that aren't being dealt with.

Coca Cola....just bad for your teeth, or altogether bad for human relations?
