Two drinks that make a difference in my life – coffee and Coca-Cola. The first is my morning comfort. The second is my all-around elixir for going through the day. The history of modern food wouldn’t be complete without a bottle or glass of Coke gracing our tables. You see, Coke is to food in the same way that honey is associated to bees and cows are to pasture.
Truth is, I wouldn’t listen to you if you ever tell me that drinking Coke worsens our ‘bilbil’ (beer belly). Most likely, I will just tell you to stop eating rice! I had a difficult pregnancy the last time but I was up in glee when my doctor told me that yes it was safe to drink Coke, with “in moderation” being the key words.
Wouldn’t you agree with me that we simply crave for this carbonated drink when we’re eating something? It doesn’t matter if the food is greasy, spicy, savory or bland, we simply gotta have Coke! It is one of the greatest secrets ever – what is Coke’s ingredients that make it addicting and intoxicating? We will never know it seems. I read somewhere that the secret formulation is kept somewhere in a bank vault in the US, while the rest of the world craves and guzzles it by the minute.
Coke is synonymous to fun and good company. Of course I’ve heard about people consuming a 1.5 liter bottle by their lonesome, but that’s another story. During a recent office celebration for our boss’ birthday, we feasted on a whole lechon made even tastier when paired with a glass of Coke.
And during my recent trip to neighboring Taiwan, we simply had to have Coke to go with all the delicious food we ate there.
Other chow we feast on where drinking Coke is simply a must! It makes our tummy go for the yummy 😀
Hamburger! (make it with fries)
