Yes, Coke-foodaholic—that’s me, that’s you, that’s every Filipino who satisfy their longing for a truly pleasurable mealtime by matching any food at any moment, anywhere possible with an ice-cold can, bottle or glassful of Coca-Cola.
And we all know why only a Coke will do. It’s the beverage that has been part of our lives through the years, offering us a unique kind of refreshment that’s accessible and worth our pennies; lastingly uplifting our spirits by quenching our thirst and making food taste even yummier all the time and best of all, turning ordinary chowtimes to instant, memorable bonding moments.
No doubt, we are all one in believing that Coca-Cola is that irreplaceable sparkle that fills our stomach, warms our hearts and makes food moments all the more enjoyable and overflowing with happiness. These are the times that never fail to paint a hearty smile on our faces and make our mouths water!
Celebrated columnist and a true blue Coke-foodaholic Leah Puyat, shares a page off her “everyday happiness kainan diary” to remind us the refreshing reasons why we love spicing up every wholesome bite with nothing less than a Coke:
"For me, for mealtimes to become more special and filled with happiness, we just have to forget guilt and savor the taste, smell and feel of food on our tongues. And of course, we must have a drink that goes well with any food and can make it more flavorful and truly gratifying. I know only a Coke can give us the filling and energizing refreshment we need. It really is happiness in a bottle."
