Hot Time In The Old Town Tonight

Looks like the folks at Coca Cola are rolling out a new offering for the good folks in Japan. A self heating can of Canada Dry Ginger Ale. That's certainly strange, but I must say that I'd certainly be game to give it a try. The self heating can is the coolest feature, to my mind and a tech I'd like to see adopted in many other areas. Dr Pepper, (if I drank it anymore since they dissolved Dublin Dr Pepper) would be a great choice for a self heating can. Here's hoping that this Ginger Ale makes its way to a local Japanese store in my area!

A Look At Soda Mecca

While I have perused their online presence, I have never had the absolute pleasure of visiting Galco's. One of these days I hope I get to make the trip and see it with my own eyes and come out with a gross of new sodas. Until then, I'll make do with this wonderful short movie.

Dublin Dr. Pepper Being Sued By DP/Snapple Group

In a true travesty of justice the Dr. Pepper/Snapple group are suing fan favourite Dublin Dr. Pepper for myriad reasons. They don't like the fact that Dublin Dr. Pepper (the Original DP) shows up in distinctive bottles and is sold through the internet and beyond the corporate region they've deigned to proffer for the Dublin DP bottler. Here's hoping that this is resolved quickly, and in favour of the good folks in Dublin! Not only is their product superior to the mass produced swill that DP/Snapple usually turns out but it's an original and deserves respect.

And here is the response to the lawsuit from the folks at Dublin.

Sierra Mist Getting A Makeover

Here's some good news on the Soda front. Sierra Mist is getting a complete makeover and they're going to ditch HFCS entirely. Sugar will now be their go to sweetener in the Lemon-Lime Soda. Sweet! I happen to like a Sierra Mist every now and again and can't imagine that this will be anything but a significant improvement. Way to go PepsiCo!
PepsiCo is eliminating Sierra Mist in favor of Sierra Mist Natural, which is sweetened with sugar instead of high-fructose corn syrup. The move, which has been in the works for about 18 months, is two-fold. Research showed that brand loyalty in the lemon-lime category is lower than it is in the cola category. And the natural food and beverage category is exploding.

Can't wait to see this hit the shelves. Now, if they'd just put it in glass bottles....
