A soda for all seasons

Share us!

An ancient philosopher once said, “He whose syrup is combined with unusual effervescence shall live for all eternity.”

That same man* was stoned to death for his progressive views on the mixing of potables with effervescence, sure. But he wasn’t wrong. Because soda, as we all know, is delicious.

Now I know what you’re thinking: “Only Americans call it ‘soda.’ Call it ‘pop’ like a good Canadian boy.”

I will do no such thing, good sir or ladysir.

Why am I all jacked up on the subject right now? Because the fine folks at Coke Zero sent the Unknown Studio a 12-pack of their tasty beverage, and along with it a framed image of trading cards that you can collect in each case a limited run of which we were given as a gift — hockey-related trading cards, no less. Pretty nice, right?

And while we’re certainly fond of Coke Zero here at the Unknown Studio — particularly due to its harmonious relationship to rum — we now have so much Coke we don’t know what to do with…

That’s where you come in: the Coke Zero Anything Challenge

In order to effectively use the Coke Zero we were so graciously provided with, we need you — our readers — to help us. Tell us how to use the Zero and we’ll do it — as long as it isn’t illegal, overly messy (some mess is acceptable) or destructive.

Maybe you want us to use the Coke Zero in a chili recipe. Or perhaps you want us to fill our mouths with Mentos and a Coke Zero chaser. Whatever you want us to, we’ll do it. And we’ll videotape it as well, for evidence’s sake.

So put your thinking caps on, light some candles, burn some incense and get inspired. Tell us what we need to do (down there in the comments) with 12 cans of Coke Zero. And we’ll do it.


*This man actually never existed.

    My first thought involves cooking. Season a chunk of meat as one would, put it on a rack in a roasting pan that’s got a good lid, and pour the fizzy stuff in the bottom of the pan . With the application of some heat and patience it will be yummy!

    Also, I love “ladysir”, I’m totally stealing that.

      I feel like that you’re describing could be called “Coke stew.” And it sounds delicious!
