The above shot is from a weekly grocery store flier.
The detrimental information about the risks (weight gain, obesity, altering our body’s metabolism, diabetes, etc.) of sugary drinks is readily available, and public health campaigns also highlight them.
Look at the above ad and do the math:
5 x 2 Liters of Coca-Cola = 10 liters
5 x 1 Liter of Smartwater (brought to you by the Coca-Cola Company) = 5 liters
For the same amount of money, you get twice the amount of Coke.
I am not endorsing drinking either Coca-Cola or Smartwater. I just find this ad to be a sad commentary on the state of our food industry today.
