Taylor Swift Lives My Dream Of Drowning In Kittens In This Diet Coke Commercial

Taylor Swift
Paradise, Basically

Taylor Swift is apparently Diet Coke’s new spokesgirl, and in this new commercial, she spends her afternoon surrounded by an ocean of kittens. Her own cat Olivia Benson even makes a cameo at the end, and if I’m being honest I’m totally twitching from wanting to pet all those little furballs. Meanwhile, Taylor’s other cat Meredith receives zero TV airtime and is totally getting the shaft. Sigh. It’s tough to be Mer. [Celebuzz]

Diet Soda Linked To Depression

Yet another reason diet soda may not be as good a choice as you assumed: A new study links it to an increased risk of depression, LiveScience reports. More than 263,900 US adults answered questions about their beverage consumption between 1995 and 1996, and about 10 years later, they were asked if they had been diagnosed with depression since the year 2000. Those who regularly consumed four or more cans per day of any type of soda were 30 percent more likely to have been diagnosed with depression, but those who chose diet soda saw a 31% increased risk compared to just 22% for regular-soda-drinkers.

How Long Does Soda Really Stay Fizzy?

This guy clearly had way too much time on his hands at work. But I’m glad he did because I’ve always wanted to know how long Diet Coke stays fizzy for. If I drank Diet Coke. I don’t because I’m an aquaholic. But all the other Frisky ladies are DC enthusiasts. Now I know they have about 34 minutes to finish the beverage once they they start. Ooh. I hear a tab popping right now. It’s probably Amelia or Kate. I’m setting a timer. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld, Coke Addict

Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a limited edition package to be sold at Colette, and not a thing about it surprises us. Naturally, he’d only elect to associate himself with Diet Coke, considering his no-fatties-allowed rules. And of course, he’d make the design an homage to himself. Can’t say the man doesn’t stick to his guns. Do you love Uncle K so much that you would pay $5 for something you could just as easily buy for 99 cents? Die-hard fans can purchase the $80 boxed set (no joke) which comes with one bottle of Lagerfeld’s Coca Cola Light, an impressive display box, and a bottle opener. Ca-ching! If you’re interested, Colette is also counting your calories in another new way this month, with a lunch box program in Paris. On the menu: Vitamin and carrot sticks. Om nom nom.

Would A Soda Tax Affect Your Diet Coke Habit?

I can fully admit it—I drink three, sometimes even four, Diet Cokes a day. We have a fridge full of them here at the Frisky office and my DC consumption is nothing compared to Amelia’s—she perpetually has a small tribe of cans on her desk. So we were both a little concerned when we heard that many public health officials, including one group who just published an article in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine, are calling for a soda tax. Apparently, the idea is picking up steam—53 percent of Americans think a soda tax is a good idea and Barack Obama recently said that he thinks we should be exploring one. “It’s really a double-win,” said Dr. David Ludwig, one of the authors of the New England Journal report. “We can raise much-needed dollars while likely reducing obesity prevalence, which is a major driver of health care costs. In terms of ways of raising that revenue, a tax on sugar sweetened beverages is really a no-brainer.” [ABC News] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: “Ugly Betty” Inspires Ugly Diet Coke Bottle

Now “Ugly Betty” fans can sip soda from a pink leopard-print Diet Coke bottle designed by Patricia Field. They even come with stickers that you can put anywhere! For now, these bottles are only available in the U.K., but Patricia Field’s boutique and “Ugly Betty” are both based in New York City, so we know it’s only a matter of time before these tacky things come here.
