Coca Cola no sugar is Coca Cola Zero elsewhere 

seems an odd thing to have a run on would have expected bottled water or long life milk

What's with the water ?

Who here lives in a town where the tap water is unsafe to drink ?

The water in Dunedin doesn't taste nice but i still spend 19 years of my life drinking it unfiltered and im fine ! 

And in an earthquake or whatever they tell you to boil it and then its safe and drinkable

Successfully persuading people to pay $4.00 a bottle for something they can have out of the tap for 0.004 of a cent is one of the more remarkable marketing achievements of our time, that's for sure

The stupidity and gullibility of the everyday consumer 

I feel bad that Gary insists  on drinking bottled water but he is suspicious of the lumps of lime that come out of the jug if we don't strain it, i grew up with hard water - he's never come across it before 

So until we can save up for 3k l+ for a water softner for arguments sake its saving alot of arguments letting him drink his bottled water - but his ice and his hot drinks and his lemon water i make him come out of the tap !

And we shouldn't be neglecting the environmental aspect.

Almost.

We used to have Coke Zero - they took it away almost two years ago, and replaced it with "No Sugar"

Different recipe - not as strong, much to my chagrin...

if the name Kaikoura sounds familiar it is the home of the legendary cows and Slv members that were stranded during the earthquake
