Cereal Killer Cafe

Anyone who lives in London or is thinking of visiting, might want to stop by Cereal Killer, the UK's first cereal cafe. Everyday from 7am - 8pm, customers will be able to choose from a menu of 100 cereals from around the world. Small bowls cost £2.50 ($3.93), medium bowls will run you £3.00 ($4.72) and the largest size sets you back £3.50 ($5.50). The idea for this cafe came about when identical twins Alan and Gary Keery from Belfast wanted a bowl of cereal in the later afternoon, but none of the usual restaurants in the area catered to their craving.

Coca-Cola Bottle Polar Bear Prize

Buying a bottle of Coca-Cola from a vending machine isn't anything special, but the last thing you'd expect to see coming out is some money and a furry thing.

We're guessing that many machines around town have at least one of these prize bottles, but you may have to buy more than one for a shot. Continue reading for more pictures.

Coke Man

George Prior wanted to show the world just how harmful Coca-Cola is to the human body. So, he went on a special "Coke diet", which consisted of consuming 10 cans of Coke a day for a month. Each can contains approximately 35-grams of sugar, which equates to a total of 350-grams of sugar every day. As you can see, his formerly healthy and muscular 50-year-old physique changed drastically in the span of 31-days. Prior's weight not only shot up from 168-pounds to 192-pound, but his blood pressure also climbed from 129/77 to 145/96 - ideal is 120/80. Continue reading for two videos and more information.
