Sip On Some “Garlic Coke” – Wait – “What The Friday!?!?!?!?!”
Here is why the internet is such a great place to live: everyday, someone sends me a photo, or a video, of something wild and wacky – and this “What The Friday” is thanks to my friend Ben, who sent me the photo of “Garlic Coke.”
So of course, I had to investigate, so let’s head to Japan!
Welcome To Japan’s Garlic Capital!
Time to drop in on Aomori, the garlic capital of Japan!
The town has proudly created all sorts of delicious garlic products, like garlic ice cream and garlic beer!
So when this picture showed up, I had to know if it was true – and guess what? Kinda!
I discovered that a Coke mixed with some finely ground garlic was in fact produced in the town. Additional searching helped me find this picture of the garlic coke for sale…
As you can “kinda” see, the bottles don’t have the signature “Coke” logo, and in fact, the “Garlic Coke” shot is not actually real…
That said, the real “garlic coke” bottles I shared WERE REAL – so the product did exist, but most of the coverage was several years old, so if anyone is heading to Aomori soon, let me know if it’s still for sale!
And remember the last time I shared a unique flavor of Coke?
That’s right, remember the “Crab Cola?” It IS real, and you can read about it here:
Let me know your appetite for “Garlic Coke!”
