I took a trip to Walmart the other day and stumbled the Share a Coke Tour.
The Cola crew gave out free beverages to promote the concept of paying it forward.
I naturally took one for myself and one for each of my family members.
The cans had super cool names on the side. One for a "Buddy." One for a "Legend."
One for a "Friend." One for a "BFF." There was a beverage for everyone. Although
I'm not a soda drinker, I took the can labeled "Buddy." It was my Dad's name, and I thought
I'd bring home a beverage for him. God, I miss that man.
Cheers to you, Dad. ❤
Anyway, I walked inside to get the things that I originally went to Walmart for,
but stumbled upon more Coca Cola goodies. I found a bottle with my name on it, so
I bought a beverage for me. It's not often that you find a personalized product.
I also found one with my brother's name on it. You can bet your booty I bought that bottle too. Since I couldn't find my sister-in-law's name (that would make up everyone in my household), I checked out the Coca Cola site and sent a virtual drink. Everyone was a happy camper.
Nonetheless, with all of the Cola in my house, I thought I'd spare some and whip up a refreshing summer treat. My family was having some friends over this week, so I thought this would be one more way to #shareitforward. I used a bottle of Coke Zero to make some Coke Float Pops. Everyone likes ice cream, after all.
Coke Float Pops
By: Brittany @ Freckled Nettles
Prep Time: 5 Minutes
Freeze Time: 2 Hours
Fill your frozen pop mold halfway with Coke. Freeze until the Coke is mostly solid. In a small bowl or cup, combine milk, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt. Pour the milk mixture a quarter of the way into the mold and freeze again until everything is frozen solid. Enjoy!
Thanks, Coca Cola, for giving me the opportunity to #shareitforward and spread some good karma!
Have you seen the new Cola bottles? Did you find your name or a family/friend's name?
