Food trends are part and parcel of social media. Back in 2020 we were all whipping up our morning coffee’s a la Dalgona, and earlier this year we were eating Emily Mariko’s rice, salmon and nori special for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Now, there’s a new trend in town, but it doesn’t seem quite as fun as whipping up some coffee. The next hot drink in town is the ‘healthy’ Coca-Cola.
Many of us are inclined to grab a glass of Coke on a warm day, little else is more refreshing. But, TikTok has decided that the fizzy drink just isn’t good for us, with too much sugar in it we should be washing back something much healthier… something like balsamic vinegar and sparkling water *sick face emoji*.

You heard that correct, people are actually mixing together a glass of sparkling water and a few drops of balsamic vinegar and drinking it. But, before we go knocking it straight away, some people are claiming that it tastes exactly like the real thing.
“It’s a healthy alternative to Coke and I am not joking you, it taste just like a coke. And you’re going to think I’m insane” said TikTok user Amanda Jones.
Showing herself mixing up the drink and knocking it back others have got wind and are trying it out for themselves. So far, there’s been mixed results, as you can see for yourself below.
