Coke Blak makes soda your morning pick-me-up

Blak4pkAs a rule, I don’t get out of bed until most people are nearly seated at their desks, so I woke up way too late to take advantage of this early morning Times Square giveaway for Coke Blak, a coffee-infused soda. Luckily X-Entertainment was around to catch the whole thing (with pics). I’m not a big coffee drinker, but I’m for anything that promotes soda as a morning bevy. After all, it has all the same chemicals to get you going in the AM—caffeine, sugar, phosphoric acid. Quite frankly, I’m surprised Coca-Cola hasn’t seized on this marketing tactic before. Obesity epidemic be damned! If Americans can order up a mid-morning Frappucino, why not a bottle of Coke Blak?
