Default The white can tastes different???

Too many funny commentaries about how stupid humans are to list them all, but "...others felt that regular Coke tasted different in the white cans..." takes the cake (or is it coke?).

"Coke regularly tweaks its packaging to create buzz and has a long tradition of holiday marketing, and says it helped shape the image of Santa Claus in his red suit with its 1930s advertising. Other Christmases past have featured snowflakes and polar bears, which appear on this season's cans."

I'll be darn!

"Coke said it became aware of consumer complaints through Internet postings and some telephone calls to the company. Many Internet comments have been critical of the white cans. "PEOPLE! Don't be a victim,'' wrote one consumer on Twitter, warning that mixing up Coke and Diet Coke is "a SHOCK to the palate!'' "

Always amazes to read that people care so much, about something so little, that they would actually call or write the company.

And yet people have no time to take better care of themselves or seek a little factual knowledge on politics.

i have to admit i got duped by that can the other day. we had those in the fridge and i picked it up thinking it was Diet Coke. opened it up about half way to work, took a big drink, it was a little bit of a shock.

imagine driving to work at 4:45am taking a drink from what you think is a Diet Coke can and having Coke come out........
