We have the better moth off the soft drink world, the $30 billion Coca Cola, bringing us something a little special. It's a coffee cola. Coca Cola in Italy have put coffee in there. Cola. We'll come back to you a second. This, uh, contender, I suppose, is Fred's cola German based, and this is their caramel coffee cola. Now, this is interesting. A lot of people, for a long time have talked about mixing coffee and cola. I just never quite got it in my head. T sound good, so I'm resident. Skeptical. Nervous Those things Coca Cola is, I think, a thing of beauty. It is a technological marvel. In some ways, it is beautifully composed. Coca Cola has become its own flavor cola flavor. No one can really tell you what Coca Cola tastes off. No one can break into pieces because they blended the flavors so beautifully that all you taste is the kind of combination that kind of gestalt flavour so you don't taste orange or lime or lemon or nutmeg or cinnamon on a roly oil. Those flavors are there, but you just can't get them. It's a beautifully composed thing, and so I'm hesitant that coffee will be a positive addition and not just disruptive to that balance. Now, how you feel about the most company is more complicated. How you feel about the healthfulness of Coca Cola is a separate deal, but I think it's a very clever product for it. So I don't know that much about from memory. It's a little bit more Citrus skewed. Typically, competing products tend to be a little heavy on one flavor characteristic. You know, if you think about competing ketchups, toe Heinz Hines is your benchmark, and others will be sweeter or more vinegary on the same thing with Cola's typically there to lie me there to clover your cinnamon E or something like that from memory. It's a little lemon heavy, but I could be wrong. Still, I think an independent business so this you know, it's still it's a good sized company, from what I can tell, but it's, I think, still independently on someone in the comments will correct me if I'm wrong on that. But they both got coffee. Toler's and they both might be good, and they both might be disgusting. I just don't know. I just don't know. And so I've made them cold. I guess we should, uh I guess we should drink the Coca Cola. That's a great sound, isn't it? Oh, uh, So Okay, I need a bottle opener. You know, there are always people that can just open bottles of stuff with anything they have to hand. I am I am not one of those people. I need a bottle of trustee spoon. I feel I feel like the incumbent should go first. Cola plus coffee. Oh, God. Wish me luck. No, no. What is wrong with you? You have one of the most beautifully composed soft drinks in the world. The coffee taste is bad. It's got, like, a little dirty, very low quality terror. Massu about it. That's sort of where I'm at with this one. That is bad. That is not good. Will come back to you in a second. Okay? It's not great. I'm not sure it's even good, but it's all bad lavishing praise on the fritz collar today. So the coffee flavor and here is much more subtle to me. It's that slightly rough end of coffee, not the interesting, pretty sweet end of coffee. It's a cola coffee, lemonade with caffeine. There's a thing for them. Actually, that is quite a lot of caffeine in. This is like a good dose of caffeine. Um, which who cares? And it just tastes like a slightly odd cola where that kind of caramel quality to cola turns into a sort of dirty coffee flavor. This Oh, it's like you took a really great painting just door, but over it with dirt and mud. You know what I mean? Just obscured anything charming or pretty or a desirable or pleasurable about it. With mud with filth, this is This is just awful. It takes all the good points on all of that is smothered with dirty, dirty coffee. Water taste. It's very bad. It's very bad, really. I just blows my mind that you couldn't do better than that. Coca Cola. I think if you release that Italy, I mean it's almost offensive to Italians that you think that their coffee is that bad. Fritz Winds Well done, Fritz Cola for Oh, bad, bad. Not not bad. Not bad. Maybe not good, actually. Well, do I like anything? I do. I do like things. I do like things. All right, that's it for me. That's it. Thank you so much for watching. Let me know if these things you wanna taste or try it down in the comments below, let me know if you've had these. And if you likethe, um, I'd be interested to hear, as always. Thank you so much for watching and, uh, have a great day if I complain from sort of weird pan pipes.
