I'm In Love...


...with Diet Coke Plus. It's been a brief relationship (I've only had two) but it has been magical. It's strange because I absolutely abhor Diet Coke. But there is something about the plus in Diet Coke Plus that does it for me.

Wikipedia states that "the flavor is slightly different from regular Diet Coke, the antioxidant Diet Coke Plus is flavored with green tea." This perplexes me even more because if there is something I hate more than Diet Coke, it's green tea. But mixed together, they make something very magical.

In other Coke news, I'm very excited about a special treat that I am going to have this weekend. Chad and I are taking a short road trip to Louisville on Saturday to go car shopping - and I've decided that on the drive I'm going to have a bottle of Coke with dry roasted, salted peanuts poured in it. Chad thinks that it is pretty sad that I'm so excited about this and have talked about it every day of the week thus far - but it is so good. I remember when my sister and I were little my dad would take us fishing at Lake Arlington and we would have peanuts and Coke. I haven't had it in years, but I saw something about it online a few days ago and have practically been salivating since.

No need to explain cravings here --I start drooling a little bit pretty much any time I talk or think about dessert, pasta, or calzones.

I want to hear a full report about the car hunt.

Peanuts in your soda?? That is a new one for me! I might have to try that (after re-reading your post 50 times to make sure I didn't misunderstand, haha). Seriously, weird. :)

I haven't tried Diet Coke plus yet, nor have I tried Coke Zero. Could there be more varieties of coke on the market? I like the Classic stuff.

Mom says - Jen surely cannot be from the deep South! Or she would have heard of peanuts in Coke. Ah! Sweet memories! Love you bunches! MOM

Better than drinking peanuts in your coke is that you talked about it every day since you thought of it... we are kindred spirits in that way. And I'm happy it drives Chad crazy.
