What to do with all of those empty Coke bottles taking up space in your recycling bin? Coca-Cola 2nd Life has the answer, with a line of bottle caps that put those empties to good use.

The innovative caps turn the iconic Coke bottle into anything from a water squirt gun and bubble blowers for the kids, to spray bottles and condiment dispensers for adults.

The initiative is being rolled out with 40,000 units in Vietnam and will continue throughout Asia. What? We don’t need Coke water guns out west?

Watch These People Try Coca-Cola For The First Time

trying-coke

Believe it or not, there are people who’ve actually been living under rocks, that have never tried a Coca-Cola.

Brought to us by BuzzFeed Video, the excuses from these people — who are indeed full-grown Americans — range anywhere from having a mom who was very strict about sugar, to being a Pepsi purist. Not all of them having grown up in a strange cult, as we assumed also.

The reactions to their first Coke experience then range from being absolutely horrified, to the same child-like enthusiasm you’d expect from someone who was denied sugar their entire life… Or, just having escaped a cult. Enjoy.

In fact, if you leave the two together, and allow them to react with each other for a few hours, it is one of the most horrifying things you’ll see today.

Sorry if we ruined your afternoon soda float…

A Special Glass To Help Coca-Cola Taste Better Exists

coke-glass

Until now, we’ve been left to drink our beloved Coca-Cola out of regular non-fancy glasses, or straight from the two-liter. Well, no more.

Coca-Cola and glassmaker Riedel teamed up to design a drinking vessel that they hope will make your Coke taste better.

Just like the wine glasses that Riedel are best known for, the new soda glass hopes to enhance your whole Coke-drinking experience. No longer will we miss out on those subtle notes of high fructose corn syrup, and that mid-palate hint of caramel color. Sorry.. Big Gulp Riedels are not available.

Coca-Cola’s Social Media Guard Will Help Cure Your Smartphone Addiction

social-media-guard

As hard as it is to believe, there might just be a way to cure people of their smartphone and social media addiction. And, it may be as simple as borrowing the same technology that’s used to get your dog to stop chewing on their stitches.

Coca-Cola has come up with the brilliantly spoofy Social Media Guard. Once the smartphone addict is fitted with their cone of shame, they’d seemingly be unable to continue looking down at their phone, and actually enjoy the world around them.

Of course, Coke wants us to believe that this new lust for life will involve consumption of their product — along with the occasional appreciation of a sunset, your cat, and family time.

But, before you start looking up from your phone, please like or follow Foodiggity on your social media platform of choice. Enjoy.
