It's The Real Thing !

Oh sure I like a Coke now and then...

but 2 to 2.6 gallons of Coke everyday isn't a good thing.

New Zealand woman's Coca-Cola habit cited in death

Quote:
Harris' partner, Chris Hodgkinson, testified that Harris drank between 8 and 10 liters (2.1 and 2.6 gallons) of regular Coke every day.
"The first thing she would do in the morning was to have a drink of Coke beside her bed and the last thing she would do at night was have a drink of Coke," Hodgkinson said in a deposition. "She was addicted to Coke."

Yikes that's alot of sugar and calories combined with the 30 cigarettes a day mentioned in the article. She leaves behind 8 children, what a sad situation and she was only 30 years old.

Two gallons of regular Coke is ~ 2800 calories! So she got more than enough calories per day just from the Coke. I guess she wasn't eating hardly anything else?

Did her 'partner' try to do anything?

If I drank that much Coke, I'd burp myself to death.
