     Put De Lime In De Coke ya nut and You Drink It All Up
    Entertainment: Food
    Coca Cola has found a catchy jingle for their Cola with Lime drinks. The commercial playing on the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship is the one with the researcher in a lab coat inventing Coke with lime. He holds a lime in his right hand, and taps a can of coke with his left hand. The music playing underneath sounds like maybe a calypso/Caribbean tune. The pidgin lyrics go something like this: "Ya put de lime in de Coke ya nut and ya drink eet ull up!" Then the scene changes to the CEO's office. The CEO is grey-haired and bespectacled with the classic 1950s/1960s black plastic earpieces and silver frames. He bellows in basso profundo to the research scientist "Now Let me get this straight?!?". The he turns to the Coca Cola board of directors and sings the same lyrics. The subtitles show "You Put the Lime in the Coke You Nut and you drink it all up."

    Of course, this is "Coconut" by Harry Nilsson from his Nilsson Schmilsson album. The original lyrics are "She put the lime in the coconut, and drank them both up ". Even Kermit the Frog covered this song. Very effective.

    Diet soft drinks are very popular. An AP newswire article on MSNBC talks about the popularity of diet soda and the sales growth. According to the delivery drivers where I work, the upper Midwestern states contain the highest ratio of "diet pop" consumers per capita.

    In the sixties and seventies, the most popular no calorie sodas were Fresca and Tab. Both contained saccharin, which was believed at the time to cause cancer in laboratory rats. They both had a strange bitter taste from the sweetener. Despite this, they were very popular. In 1982, Coca Cola introduced Diet Coke and never looked back. The aspartame sweetener was much better tasting than saccharin and was a major hit. The latest studies seem to contradict the saccharin/cancer theory. (Stuff a lab rat with too enough of anything and he will probably develop cancer.) But the real fact was that saccharin did not taste as good as sugar.

    I switched to Diet Coke from regular Coke in the wake of the New Coke fiasco of 1985 and never looked back. It eventually became my only caffeinated beverage, replacing coffee following the Coca Cola "Coke in the Morning" marketing campaign in 1987. I have grown to prefer the taste of the Diet Coke to Coke Classic. The corn syrup sweetness is now too much for me now. In our household, we purchase several different brands of diet soda. I am the only caffeine drinker, so my drink of choice is one of the Diet Coke variations. Currently I prefer the taste of Diet Vanilla Coke, but the abovementioned commercial ACTUALLY INCREASED MY INTEREST in Diet Coke with Lime. This seems hard to believe to me, but it is the only explanation I have. When Coca Cola released the Diet Cherry Coke, I tried it for a few months. It never had enough cherry tartness for me compared to an actual cherry cola bar drink. The Diet Coke with lemon is a huge taste failure in my opinion. It reminded me of lemon household cleaners. I choked down the twelve-pack just to keep from feeling guilty about wasting it. Their billboards were a joke too. A very attractive pixie-haired woman was shown with freakishly puckered lips next to the Diet Coke with lemon logos. It was a huge turnoff. I imagined her getting hold of some alum powder like a cartoon character. The Vanilla Diet Coke has been a huge hit for me. I prefer it to the taste of Diet Coke. But now I alternate between the Lime and Vanilla. I have not yet tried the high fructose corn syrup "regular" versions yet.

    Because of my distaste for sugared pop which I previously loved, I sometimes wonder if the high fructose corn syrup that replaced sugar in the 80's is more allergenic. I have been tested for allergies and reacted to nothing, including directly injected concentrated cat hair. And certainly I like sugar in baked goods.

    The rest of my household drinks diet caffeine free soda pop. The most popular are the Diet Rite cherry and white grape, Fresca, Diet Caffeine Free Dr. Pepper, Diet A&W Root Beer, Diet Caffeine Free Pepsi, Diet Caffeine Free Coke, Diet Caffeine Free Mountain Dew, Seven Up Plus, Sugar Free Sunkist Orange drink, Sugar Free Tropicana Lemonade, Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale, and Diet Cherry 7up.

    The Diet Caffiene Free Dr. Pepper and Mountain Dew are usually out of stock on busy shopping days. The caffeinated shelf inventory outnumbers the caffeine free 10 to 1. The shelf stock for diet vs. sugared carbonated drinks appears to be evenly split in the major grocery chains.

    I tried it, and it is not too bad. It almost tastes sugary, but with a little of the TAB bitterness. It may have a niche. It came in some cool little 12oz bottles. I still prefer the Lime and Vanilla Diet Coke. It looks like others do too according to this article.

    ATLANTA, February 7, 2005 – Coca-Cola North America today announced that it will introduce Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda® in the United States in the second quarter of 2005.

    Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda will be the seventh addition to the Diet Coke family, which includes the flagship Diet Coke, America’s #1 diet soft drink, plus Caffeine Free Diet Coke, Diet Coke with Lime, Diet Coke with Lemon, Diet Cherry Coke, and Diet Vanilla Coke.

    “Many consumers told us they liked the taste of Splenda and wanted a Splenda-sweetened option under the Diet Coke brand, so we’re obliging them,” said Dan Dillon, Jr., vice president, Diet Portfolio, Coca-Cola North America. “The millions of current Diet Coke devotees across America shouldn’t be concerned – the Diet Coke they love will stay just as it is.”

    The launch of Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda follows the successful roll out one year ago of Diet Coke with Lime, which has become the #1 flavored diet cola in America. The launch continues a year of innovation for The Coca-Cola Company which will include a range of offerings across all beverage categories.

    Diet Coke Sweetened with Splenda will feature a blend of Splenda and acesulfame potassium (ace-k) for optimal taste. It will be available in a range of package sizes and will be supported by a variety of marketing programs. Further details on launch plans will be made available closer to the introduction.

    I cannot finish the 12 pack. ALMOST tastes like regular Dr. Pepper. Although it has some chocolate covered cherry taste to it too, but the chocolate covered cherries have been in a box on top of the piano for about a year....

    See the Group29 Article about Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke being phased out

    http://www.group29.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=85

    I have tried the Black Cherry Vanilla. It is better than the Cherry coke, but not as good as the Vanilla Coke. However, it has a stronger flavor than the Vanilla Coke. I still have some Vanilla Diet coke hoarded, but it is going fast. I would bet that, in blind taste tests, people preferred the taste of black cherry vanilla over plain vanilla. However, that is how the whole New Coke fiasco started.



    Coconut Song (Score: 1)

    Coconut is a calypso song written, and first recorded, by Harry Nilsson.

    The third single from his 1971 album, Nilsson Schmilsson it features three distinct characters (the narrator, the sister, and the doctor) all sung in different voices by Nilsson. The song is perhaps best remembered for its chorus lyric, "Put de lime in de coconut, and drink 'em both up." It has appeared in many films (including Practical Magic, in which it is proclaimed "a good song to get drunk to"), commercials (most famously for Coca-Cola with Lime), and even an episode of The Simpsons.

    Cover versions of the song have been recorded by The Baha Men, The Muppets and, according to a Nilsson website, the Alice Cooper Band [1]. After being featured in the 1992 motion picture, Reservoir Dogs, Australian singer Dannii Minogue (sister of Kylie) recorded the song as a bonus track on her third album Girl. It was subsequently released on December 7, 1998 only in Australia as final, fourth single from that album. It charted at #62.

    To an interview on the Holy Grail. Graham looked grey – as if he had spent the last five years un-dead. Which really was nearer the truth than it seemed. Graham, having lately fallen in with Ringo Starr, has also drifted into the Keith Moon/Harry Nilsson orbit. Now Moon, the drummer of The Who, is a genuine loony and drives Rolls-Royces into swimming pools, but Nilsson, who is a rock musician, as I heard from a slurred and shattered Chapman, is a man bent on self-destruction. He drinks neat gin, a bottle in one evening, pops every pill possible, but most of the time prefers cocaine. Graham was really shocked.
