It Works on a Theoretical Basis

20191217_205353In hopes of finding a replacement for my cherry coke, I took a chance, and not an economical one at that, on this raspberry flavoured coke that came in a glass bottle. It also came with peach flavoured coke–but you won’t see me touching that with a ten-foot pole.

I certainly liked the glass bottle and non twist-off cap that it came with. It was rather nostalgic and maybe a reminder that we could stop selling coke in plastic bottles.  Maybe five years from now we will go back to this method and people will not remember plastic bottles.  Maybe on season 25 of American Pickers, the hosts will be purchasing those plastic bottles for 50 dollars a pop.  (I wasn’t conscious of the pun there until I finished typing and was reading it over.)

It didn’t taste great but it was still a nice change. I am rather curious why they mentioned British Columbia raspberries.  I didn’t know that was a thing.  Is that a thing?

I can’t call it Today’s Perfect Moment, but I am certainly happy I got to try something new.  I think it is important to shrug off ruts and venture outside of our comfort zone.  This isn’t more than a centimetre or two outside of that zone, but I’ve come to suspect for some, even that is too far.  It works on a theoretical level at least.

    ***GASP!!!!!****** OMG I need the raspberry Coke! How cool is that bottle!!!! I’ve also wanted the peach Coke but haven’t seen that, either.

    I looked when I was at Walmart on Sunday and we have PLENTY of Cherry Coke here…regular and Diet.

    The Walmart app said the Cinnamon Coke was in stock on Aisle 7 but I looked and looked and looked and didn’t find any.

    I have 1/2 bottle of it left in my fridge and then I will be in a major panic until I find more of it.

  3. In many parts of B.C. glass is being stockpiled as there are not any buyers. (Glass was used to mix in an aggregate for road building) Not sure if that includes pop bottles – they are exchanged for money and go elsewhere.
