Coca Cola Coffee Plus, la bebida que te llenará de energía – y de curiosidad –

La realidad es que la Coca Cola ha sido por muchos años, fuente de energía – y obesidad – en todo el planeta, quién no disfruta un buen sorbo de esta enigmática bebida y más si el calor es terrible. En Japón no se escapan de esta turbia afición y de acuerdo al sitio japonés Get News, el Coca Cola Coffee Plus es una bebida llena de cafeína que será una exclusiva de las máquinas expendedoras Niponas.

Cada lata estará turbocargada con al menos 34 miligramos de cafeína – con solo 42 calorías – y aunque no es la primera vez que la marca experimenta con estimulantes con sus bebidas – la Coca-Cola BlāK se vendió bien en Europa y USA hace tiempo – es toda una curiosidad.

De acuerdo a los chicos del Blog Shin-Shouhin, el sabor no es de una Coca Cola normal o de una bebida de café, más bien es as algo dulce con un toque final de café “Realmente no sabe bien, pero es mucho mejor de lo que uno podría esperar” admitieron.

Si tienen la oportunidad de ir a tierras niponas, y el desvelo les pasa factura, les sugiero una lata de este brebaje y pronto estarán despiertos y listos para más.

Tales of the Old Japan: Images from a place forgotten in time

The last days of feudal Japan: Incredible time-capsule photographs show gentle pace of life before the great leap into the modern age

  • The series was compiled by German-born American scholar Arnold Genthe, who spent six months in the country
  • Even though the rare collection is in black and white, Genthe manages to convey the vibrancy of Japanese life
  • Horse drawn carts and markets are featured laden with produce, along with carefree locals swimming in the sea

These rare images reveal what life looked like in Japan in 1908 before the onset of industrialisation and two world wars.

And it looked utterly idyllic. Modern Japan often bowls along at a hectic pace but back then it was more carefree and wistful. Horse drawn carts trundled along streets, locals jumped fully clothed into the sea and children twirled parasols.

The pictures are from a collection compiled by German-born American scholar Arnold Genthe, who roamed the streets, camera in hand, during a six-month stay.

After his death, the Library of Congress in the US acquired around 20,000 unseen photographs from his studio, which was most famous for images of San Francisco’s Chinatown.

These photos are from the Meiji period, which started in 1868 and lasted until 1912 and saw Japan propel itself from a feudal society into a far more modern country.

Now more than a century old, the images are a valuable record of a more serene period in Japan’s history.
