These Cannabis-Infused Sodas Will Take You Higher With Each Sip

Marijuana has been a hot button topic as of late, as it is becoming legal in more and more states. And as dispensaries pop up across the country, you can not only smoke, eat, and vape your weed, now you can even drink it.

Keef Brands recently launched a line of zero-calorie cannabis infused beverages that range in potency from 10mg to 100mg, include sparkling water and a variety of sodas. Keef Sparkling Lemon and Blood Orange are designed to be the go-to social option for people looking for a low-calorie, sugar free alternative to alcoholic beverages and sugary cannabis-infused edibles.

The Boulder, Colorado brand develops, produces, and distributes multiple cannabis-infused products that include beverages, edibles, and CO2-extracted oil for vape cartridges. Keef has been at the forefront of innovation around social cannabis product development and education since 2010.

In 2015, Keef’s Bubba Kush Root Beer — seen above — won Best Edible at the High Times Cannabis Cup, beating out over 150 entries from across the United States.

Keef Brands products are currently available at over 800 dispensaries across Colorado, California, Arizona, and Puerto Rico.

Watch What Happens To A Tooth When Left Inside A Coke Bottle For A Week

We’ve all heard the old adage, soda rots your teeth. Have you ever wondered if there was actual truth to that? YouTuber DaveHax gets to the bottom of this with a simple experiment.

Using his six-year-old nephew’s recently lost tooth, he dropped it into a bottle of Classic Coca Cola for a few days just to see what would happen. After the third day, he noticed there was some discoloring and decided to leave the tooth inside for full week.

After carefully straining the bottle, Dave notices that the tooth has gone from pearly white to dark brown/black with noticeable corrosion and a layer of gunk outside. The roots of the tooth, which was initially thinner, had now become flexible and came apart with even the slightest of pressure.

Overall, the tooth was completely stained and devoid of any white. Dave decided to refill the bottle and leave it for another 24 days, completing a month-long cycle inside the soda. He says he’ll post another update after the month comes to a close.

Definitely going to take a break from sodas for a while after viewing this. Remember kids, always brush your teeth.

After a bit more digging, I realized there’s a beautiful archive of culinary and artistic geniuses recreating their favorite bottled drinks in Jell-O or gummy form.

Here are some highlights of pure gummy bear wizardry with accompanying instructional recipes:

These Cola-Flavored Chips Are So Exclusive You Have To Win Them In A Claw Machine

Calbee-Cola-Chips

Japanese snack maker Calbee is probably best known for those delicious shrimp chips you can usually find at most Asian markets. Now, Rocket News 24 reports that Calbee has added a line of cola-flavored chips for the holidays.

While the brand usually offers saltier options, they’re finally taking a dive into the sweeter side with these new soda chips. There is a catch, however.

Unfortunately, getting your hands on them isn’t quite as simple as heading to a grocery store. Since Calbee has partnered with Namco in this endeavor, the snacks will only be availble as prizes for the crane games at Namco-owned amusement centers.

Snack aficionados will have to earn their cola-flavored chips. Don’t know about you, but the chances of us winning a crane game on the first try as as close to zero as you can get. Still, we wouldn’t mind giving it a couple of shots for a handful of these cola chips. Judging from the video above, they sound pretty tasty.

The amusement centers are set to open in Japan beginning Dec. 18.

Pepsi Goes Retro With Limited ‘Back To The Future’ Bottles, Here’s What It’ll Cost You

Pepsi-Perfect-Cover

When Back to the Future Part II came out, folks got their first look at Pepsi Perfect. The futuristic cola boasted an elevated rendition of the classic Pepsi. Now, more than 25 years later, we’re finally getting the soda.

With Back to the Future Day coming up on Oct. 21, Pepsi will release the limited-edition bottles to the public.

Don’t expect to see Pepsi Perfect on shelves for too long, however. USA Today reports only 6,500 bottles of the soda will be produced. Each will run you about $20 a bottle.

For avid collectors, that’s not too bad if they can get their hands on one. For casual soda drinkers, however, stick to regular-priced bottles as the the soda is said to taste the same.

The first lucky few to get their hands on the bottle will be at New York Comic Con. Fans will be able to get the first 1,500 bottles of the soda if they dress up like Marty McFly at the comic book convention.

Everyone else will just have to wait until Back to the Future Day.

CRYSTAL PEPSI Might Be Making A Return After Disappearing For 20 Years

Crystal-Pepsi-Return

Back in the early ’90s, Pepsi introduced the world to a new type of caffiene-free soda they called Crystal Pepsi. The “clear soda” was met with pretty positive reviews, though sadly, it quickly disappeared from the spotlight. There’s hope yet, reports GrubStreet.

When competitive eater LA Beast asked Pepsi if they ever planned on bringing back Crystal Pepsi, the beverage company responded with a “get ready.”

According to Pepsi, fans will be happy with what’s in store for the brand. Devoted fans of Crystal Pepsi have since launched a campaign on Twitter with the hashtag #BringBackCrystalPepsi. They have also created a petition on change.org with over 34,000 signatures.

Turns out, while Crystal Pepsi has been gone for more than two decades, it has not been forgotten. No word yet on when Pepsi plans to bring back the Crystal drink, but it definitely looks like it’s in the works.

Pepsi Releases Healthier Pepsi True Cola, Looks Hip

Pepsi-True

A few weeks back, it was reported that PepsiCo, Coca Cola and the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group would all be working to cut back the sugar in their drinks by at least 20 percent sometime in the next 10 years. Looks like Pepsi is off to an early start with a new cola they’re calling Pepsi True.

Pepsi True actually boasts 30 percent less sugar than regular Pepsi and is said to contain no high fructose corn syrup or artificial sweeteners. Instead, it’s sweetened with real sugar and stevia leaf extract.

The brand sure knows how to market to millennials, we’ll give them that. The food and beverage company recently launched a more natural “craft” soda under the name Caleb’s Kola and it looks like they’re following a similar formula once again.

Pepsi True’s design kinda makes it look like weed soda though.
