Cambodian Coca-Cola meets Mr Science

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

it's one thing to make those choices for yourself. it's a completely different thing to constantly judge the fuck out of and badmouth anyone who chooses different than you. you're not at all libertarian... you're totalitarian. if someone doesn't hold the exact same value structure as you, you're incapable of respecting that. you have to try and force your value structure down their throat harder than a priest breaking in an alter boy.

Now now...you're treading on Stroppy's territory there...

I am merely observing and recommending...force is completely absent in my eloquently expressed opinions...fools are free to consume several cans of coke a day or...copious amounts of alcohol every week...but...fools they remain to be...

aint just me opinion...there is a chorus of evidence supporting them there claims...fools are fools - so be it...

It had to be a mistake or they're having trouble selling Diet. Aspertame is way more expensive than sugar. I'm wondering, what does Coca Cola taste like w/out rum in it anyway ?

But far less aspertame than sugar is used in making a can of drink since it is so much sweeter...not that I know the comparative cost of a making a can of regular Coke v Diet Coke.

I don't know if you're buying a 40 gallon drum of the shit, but in my coffee, it's easily 10 Xs the cost to get an Equal :) amount of sweetness.

The Coca-Cola manufacture here is no doubt buying it by the drum. A 355ml can of regular Coke contains approximately 39g of sugar. A 355ml can of diet Coke contains approximately 0.3g of aspartame.

39g of sugar in a can of coke. Seriously? I can picture that amount in a heap - scary.

I occasionally let my son have a Fanta, but some of his friends quaff it all the time. I guess he does when he's out of sight too, though he claims not. :(

How much is in a can of beer, as a matter of interest?

Probably more like 33g-36g in a local 330ml can of regular Coke.

Still a lot of sugar.
