Breizh Cola is the equivalent of the brand Coca-Cola except that this one is sold in Brittany, France. The product was launched in 2002 by the Lancelot Brewery. The product tastes like a coke. Indeed, the ingredients are the following: lemon, caffeine, kola nuts. However, this cola is really different from the one you all know. The quantity of ingredients varies a bit from the normal Coke. However, the main reason is that it comes from Brittany (Breizh) ‘Le cola du phare Ouest’ meaning ‘the coke from the West Lighthouse’.
As a matter of fact, the Breizh Cola range was the first regional coke created in France. In Brittany, the product easily and quickly won over customers and is now the 2nd most consumed coke in the region with about 15% of market share. The firm has recently developed the product in Paris which was a real success. You can easily find the drink in a festival such as the ‘Vieilles Charrues’ or in sport events such as football games.
In the recent years, studies have found that drinking coke could lead to a cancer or health disease. According to the Telegraph, “One drink a day increases the risk of breast cancer by 15 per cent”, which means that you need to be careful with the amount of coke you drink. Sugar is the main problem. In a 2L Coca-Cola bottle, there is about 212g of sugar which means that you have eaten approximately 43 pieces of sugar.
As written above, the company Breizh Cola launched a product that is very similar to a coke. Still, the amounts of each ingredient in a drink is different from the ones in a coke. Breizh Cola has less sugar in a bottle compared to the cancerous Coca-Cola. Also, the company innovated a new revolutionary product: Stévia. It could be compared as a regular diet Coke but there is about 70% less sugar in it!
Breizh Cola is a young company from a beautiful place and is trying to compete with Coca-Cola. It is developing all around France and will expand abroad to show the benefits of a real and good coke. You can have more than a drink of Breizh Cola per day without fearing any health problems afterwards. If you want to try it, it’s time to visit France and more specifically, Brittany! Now, would you rather have a cancerous Coca-Cola or come visit Brittany and enjoy drinking a Breizh Cola?
