They were planning on releasing Throwback Cola, but I guess that’s not going to happen now.

Is it me or is cocaine making some sort of pop culture comeback? Because I remember growing up in the 1970s&1980s … and the drug reference for all radio/movie/tv/film/newspaper stuff was always cocaine. Cocaine trafficking. Always coked up Hollywood stars and producers. DiscoClubs with railmarks cut into the table because coke. It made people wear pastel suits and keep alligators trapped in boats.

Then some rich kids in the suburbs, a weird English toilet scene, and fucking Jimmy McNutty made it about heroin for the past 15 years.

Now we back to coke. It is weird that pop culture acts as a marketing and advertising force for anything found unconscionable by the DEA.

That said … stay off coke, kids. sugar is bad for you.

The English Toilet scene was so much more authentic back then. These days it’s all watered-down hangers-on.

Well I found myself wondering why a Coke plant would be receiving a ton or so of orange juice concentrate. Is it an ingredient? Is it to prevent scurvy? Some kind of fetish?

At the risk of “dissecting the frog,” the Coca-Cola company makes Minute Maid orange juice.

Minute Maid is a Coca-Cola brand, so they probably use the concentrate to make orange juice, which they would package in cartons and bottles.

Damn it, beaten.

I was really hoping from the headline that it was going to be some deserted part of an old plant that still had some of the original ingredients mouldering in piles.

Sadly, heroin use is still going strong. Since it’s much cheaper than those prescriptions, heroin has become a natural next step after people get hooked but can no longer afford them.
