From Mexico With Love: “Coca Cola Fiesta Variety” – Cane Sugar in Stoplight Colors – Red-Amber-Green – Coke-Fanta-Sprite – 88 Cents Per at Costco

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

First it was all like this, with the Coke v. Pepsi sugar war solely being waged on the cola front.

But now there’s this, your Coca Cola Fiesta Variety Pack, featuring cane sugar Sprite and cane sugar Orange Fanta:

The expected rejoinder from Pepsi? Sugar cane 7-Up and sugar cane Orange Crush, of course.

We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop

Camel Cigarettes to Sell Special Haight-Ashbury Pack in December – Thanks R.J. Reynolds!

Friday, November 12th, 2010

I don’t know, I don’t smoke but I already covet me a pack of special edition The Haight Camel Lights. Dig the groovy design, man.

And check the copy on the back:

“The Summer of Love, protests to be civil and a rainbow of counterculture.  Whether you started here or put flowers in your hair, grabbed a drum and hitched a ride on a painted minibus, Camel lights up this little piece of San Francisco that pulses with the spirit to evolve, revolve or revolt and follows the force to break free.”

But act fast when you see ‘em – they’ll only be available for ten short weeks.

(Wonder if they’ll do the Lower Haight next? What might that look like?)

R.J. Reynolds Uses San Francisco Name and Images to Market Camel Cigarettes to Kids

WASHINGTON, Nov. 12, 2010 / — The following is a statement of Matthew L. Myers President, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids:

Joe Camel may have been put out to pasture, but his spirit lives on in R.J. Reynolds’ latest marketing campaign that once again tries to make Camel cigarettes cool, fun and rebellious – and appealing to kids.  The new campaign cynically uses the names and images of trendy U.S. destinations, including Seattle, Austin, San Francisco, Las Vegas, New Orleans, and Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood, in an attempt to make Camel cigarettes cool again.  RJR has unveiled cigarette pack designs bearing the name of each city on its Camel web site and has told the media that it will sell limited edition cigarette packs with the city names in December and January (images from the campaign can be viewed at

It is deeply disturbing that RJR is using the good name and hard-earned reputation of these great American cities to market deadly and addictive cigarettes, especially in a way that blatantly appeals to children. Certainly the citizens and leaders of these cities do not want to be associated with a product that kills more than 400,000 Americans every year.  RJR showed truly shameless disregard for the death and suffering its products cause by calling this campaign a “celebration” of the locations involved.

The hectoring continues, after the jump
