|Possibly the last can of Diet Lime Coke in existence in the United States. |
It currently resides in my refrigerator.
It appears that the Coca Cola Company has discontinued its Diet Lime Coke product without making any announcement of the same. Diet Lime Coke happens to be one of my favorite beverages so I am quite upset about this development (tongue in cheek here).
If I had known that the discontinuation of the product was going to happen then at least I could have stocked up on a couple of cases of Diet Lime Coke, but NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!
So the picture at the top of the page shows my last can of Diet Lime Coke. I am trying to decide whether I should save it until my birthday on December 18th, or drink it soon because Coke products have an expiration date on them and I've noticed that they tend to lose their flavor after said date.
One consolation is that I have figured out a way to replicate Diet Lime Coke by adding one capful of concentrated lime juice into a can of regular Diet Coke and then gently stirring the cocktail with a straw. I tried several different amounts of lime juice before hitting on the one capful formula.
So while it's not the best solution, it will have to do.
Fie on the Coca Cola Company.
Note that this blog post is a lame attempt to reach my goal of ten blog posts in the month of November. I now need ten more posts in December to reach my annual goal of 100 blog posts.
This weekend I am traveling to Chez Protz to play a SYW in India game, which should be different and fun, so I'm looking forward to that.
