There are two fundamental facts in life that everyone should know: a party simply isn’t a party without punch and punch simply isn’t punch without Sprite.
Since time immemorial (well at least since 1961) people have been taking their punch and parties to the next level by introducing the unique lemon-lime taste of Sprite into the mix. Whether you’re working with pineapple rings or raspberry sherbet, Sprite is always ready to keep things refreshing
Every New Year’s Eve is the same in many ways, we bid adieu to the outgoing year while eagerly anticipating the new one because this year, THIS YEAR, will be the year that we finally turn things around. You’re going to read a book every month, run a marathon and put away the phone to get in some real face time. By the following December you look around and see your book club’s February pick (half finished), the barely-used runners you abandoned after
The pace of everyday life brings enough stress into the picture. Whether it's dealing with a tough work assignment or managing the kids' extracurricular calendars, it'd be nice to have a few extra hours for getting it all done.
And, as the holiday season approaches, that pace skyrockets.
Jobs intensify as employees feel the pressure to close out the year with budgets, reporting and reviews. There are last-minute get-togethers and holiday parties
Do you ever have those happy moments in life when you walk into a situation expecting things to go one way and they end up becoming something else entirely? Well I had that experience recently when I went out to ride on Coca-Cola’s Holiday Truck while it was out delivering a load of toys to donate to the CP24 CHUM Christmas Wish program. I set out that day with the dual task of taking lots of pictures at the donation event as well as interviewing
Across Canada Coca-Cola is embracing the spirit of giving this holiday season. Here are just a few examples of how we are giving back to the communities we serve:
In Toronto we’ve had the Coca-Cola Holiday Truck out making toy donations to local programs like CP24 Chum Christmas Wish and CTV Toronto’s Toy Mountain benefiting The Salvation Army.
In Brampton the Holiday Truck also participated in the Brampton Board of Trade’s 31st annual Santa Claus
The holiday season is a time for traditions. From decorating your Christmas tree, explaining the difference between a hanukkiah and a menorah, watching a beloved holiday special on tv to simply putting your snow tires on, everyone has something this time of year. For most people, food is perhaps the unifying tradition that ties us all together. Everyone has that one treat that they simply can’t get enough of when the snow starts falling and the music
The Santa Claus we all know and love — that big, jolly man in the red suit with a white beard — didn’t always look that way. In fact, many people are surprised to learn that prior to 1931, Santa was depicted as everything from a tall, thin man to an eerie-looking elf. He has worn a bishop's robe and a Norse huntsman's animal skin. In fact, when American Civil War-era cartoonist Thomas Nast drew Santa Claus for Harper's Weekly in 1862, Santa
It’s dark now. A sliver of moon hangs high in the night sky and lends the thinning trees an eerie pale glow. A stiff breeze rushes through the crisp fall air, just the sound of it sends a shiver through your body while every hair on your arm leaps to attention. Suddenly there is a gentle knock at the door. As you cautiously approach the sound, you carefully examine the peep hole and see nothing. Slowly you open the door only to be met with a terrifying
Thanksgiving, which started historically as the celebration of a successful harvest and the bounty that it provided, has over the decades evolved into a celebration of family and togetherness. For some it is a time of year when you feast on turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie then flop onto the couch in front of the TV. For others it is a time of year that brings loved ones together to share in the communal experience of preparing
This dish riffs on a classic flavour profile that many people think of when they hear "sweet potatoes." Coca-Cola and brown sugar caramelize in the oven, while butter, vanilla and traditional spices combine to taste like nostalgia.
