Red Bull Cola
Boasting a strong and natural flavor, the new Red Bull Cola drink creates a new variation on the Red Bull line with a drink that contains notable “natural flavours from plant extracts” and “natural caffeine from coffee beans”. Also included in the mixture are coca leafs, kola nut, lemon/lime, cloves, cinnamon, caramom, pine, corn mint, galangal, vanilla, ginger, mace, cocoa, liquorice, orange and mustard seeds. Sounds a bit intense! Apparently the drink has been classified as a “narcotic” in certain parts of the world, including Germany, whose own food safety institute conducted research that revealed traces of cocaine. While the research institute claims that the levels of cocaine did not pose a health threat, Red Bull responded to the allegations stating, “De-cocainized (sic) extract of coca leaf is used worldwide in foods as a natural flavouring.” I guess, drink on?
