Coke in Korea

Saturday, April 3, 2010
When the Cruz family of 4 goes out to dinner at a Korean restaurant and we order Coke, they usually bring this out:

One bottle of Coke and 4 glasses

The restaurant folks assume our entire family will split the one bottle.  That's just the way they think here.  It's a far cry from the 32 ounce Big Gulp soda you get in the US from 7-11.  It's also one of the reasons why you don't see too many huge obese Koreans walking around here.  It's a pretty darn healthy country.

Now drinking liquor, that's another story...  



Its a very factual observation, cousin! My family and I have just recently restricted sodas, to parties. And its funny, even though we have leftover sodas in the pantry, they don't care to grab for it. Instead we drink 100% juices, diluted, teas, milk, or plain water with a splashed with lemon! With diabetes running in our families we don't want to take any risks, along with the fact that soda has so many toxic chemicals, if Americans really took a moment to read labels, they probably wouldn't throw soda on their grass, for fear it would damage it! Sodas are a silent killer....thanks for the post! Cousin Nancy fr VA

The Cruzers

Hey Nancy,
Yeah, there's so much sugar in soda, it's ridiculous. Unfortunately, we've got a liitle soda addict in CJ. We try to limit it but we need to be better like you guys. Hope you're doing well.
