Haribo Happy Cola Gummi Candy

Haribo is a popular candy brand that is primarily known for their gummi candies. They make bears, worms, sharks, and various other types of gummi, like Happy Cola. Happy Cola gummies are gummies that are shaped like little soda bottles that taste kind of like cola. There are two main ways to eat them: you either bite off the top and work your way down, or you pop the whole thing into your mouth. Gummies are an interactive candy. They bend, they move, and they are fun to play with. You use your imagination to eat them. There are a lot of better tasting candies out there, but nobody refuses a gummi, especially one that’s shaped like a Coke bottle.

Pepsi

Pepsi is an American cola that tries (and fails) to compete with Coca-Cola. It’s sweeter and less bitter than Coke, and you can tell the difference between the two if you ever do a blind taste test. It’s not a bad cola, it’s just not Coke. It tries to be hip and cool and more youth-orientated, but it’s been around since 1893 so they can’t keep pretending to be the new guy on the block. Anyway, there are two types of people in the world: Coke people and Pepsi people. Coca-Cola is the number one soda for a reason: it’s better. Pepsi just kind of exists as an alternative. It’s an inferior product for people who want to rebel against the status quo. Hipsters drink Pepsi and nobody wants to be a hipster. I’m not going to judge you if you prefer Pepsi over Coke, but I’ll know that I don’t want to be your friend.

Jarritos Mexican Cola

If you’ve ever gone to a real burrito place or taco shop, then you’re probably familiar with Jarritos, the popular soda brand from Mexico. They make a lot of fruit flavored sodas, but they also make cola, specifically Mexican Cola. They use real sugar, and it creates a more authentic cola taste. It’s sweeter than Coke and it’s less acidic. I want to say that it’s better than Coke, but brand loyalty won’t let me admit it. Let’s just say that if I had a choice between a can of Coke or a bottle of Jarritos, I would choose the Jarritos. But if it were a choice between Jarritos or a bottle of Mexican Coke made with real cane sugar, I would choose the Coke. Either way, Mexico wins. But the real winner is real sugar. High-fructose corn syrup is not an adequate substitute.

Rockstar Energy Cola

You know that you need caffeine but can’t decide between an energy drink or a soda. That’s when you should grab a Rockstar Energy Cola. It’s a cola with extra energy. Look for the black label. It’s not as good as Coke obviously, but it’s better than Jolt or other similar amped-up colas. There’s no weird aftertaste or any other weird drawbacks. In fact it’s better than water and you can live off of it without any adverse health effects. It even reverses the aging process and can bring dead houseplants back to life.

RC Cola

Royal Crown Cola has to be the most unnecessary cola. There’s Coke, Pepsi and weird store brand colas. But then some mediocre beverage companies want to crack into the cola market, like RC Cola or Jolt Cola. Jolt has a twice the caffeine gimmick that distinguishes it a little, but RC Cola tastes like a cheap store brand cola. It has a weird gritty taste compared to the delicious smoothness of Coca-Cola Classic. There is no reason to try this soda ever. Not even if you are reviewing it for your blog. Trust me.
