Review: Coca-Cola’s sugarless, coffee-infused soda is actually quite nice

Coca-Cola have been on a bit of a resurgence as of late. They did away with the overly acidic Coke Zero and gave us Coca-Cola No Sugar, a terrible name but a vast improvement as the brand move to offer a sugarless alternative that actually tastes great. Yep, it still has some bad stuff in it but for those watching their weight it was a step forward without sacrificing on taste. Now Coca-Cola Australia have went and launched what is perhaps their riskiest product yet, without going to fruity route. Now we’re the testing ground for Coca-Cola Plus Coffee No Sugar, another terrible name but a drink that isn’t without its merits.... Read More | Share it now!

Australia has a new curated delivery service bringing rare wines from France to your door

Wine enthusiasts have long known that specialised distributors are the way to go, a gateway to experiencing some of the best drops that local bar or restaurant may not have on the menu, while also taking away the painful hours of research (and the ever-stressful opportunity cost) that comes with trying to find the best online. Curated wine delivery services have been popping up more and more over the years, some touting well-selected portfolios or accessible and cheap wines while others use connections to some of the world’s most unique and innovative wine houses to assemble a selection of premium drops, often at prices much more reasonable than you’d find at that up-scale restaurant you rarely get to dine at.
