What If You Can Have Health For Free Now?

Girl Kuripot has turned over a new leaf this 2011! It all started with the Cocoa-Free counter I put up here to completely cut-off my chocolate intake. My reward: no more food allergies! I don't actually crave for chocolate anymore. Actually, it was around November 2010 when I attended the Landmark Forum so I'm thrilled about a new me until now. My mind is clear from everything that limits me and borrowing a statement from a friend, "I won my own now."

Girl-Kuripot Giveaway - Want Some Free Minute Maid Pulpy Drink Plus Coke Product Recipes from Girl-Kuripot?

I've been drinking Minute Maid long before it was available here in the Philippines. At that time, the nearest store to get my Minute Maid was a local Beijing supermarket. At my first gulp from that small bottle, I thought - "So, this is how Minute Maid tastes and feels like (pulpy was very foreign to me). I'd get a big one for the week when I go back to the supermarket."

I first heard of Minute Maid (way back in the 90s) when I found a cookbook entitled Classic Cooking with Coca-Cola in our house (I think my dad bought it. Won't you? Well, it sounded cool and the title stood out.). I picked it up from the shelf and thought it was cool to learn how to cook with Coke and Sprite (my favorite) aside from the usual shrimp marinated in Sprite (it tastes sweeter when cooked) that we always do. One of the things in the book that was not possible in our part of the world at that time was those recipes with Minute Maid in them (I'm sure orange juice would do but it won't turn out exactly like it was supposed to like in the book). I could barely cook at that time (I was below 15) so I just said I'll try some of the recipes when I'm old enough and when I have access to Minute Maid. Minute Maid came just a few years ago in the Philippines and that was a long wait (10 years? I had thought in Beijing that if only had money and bring Minute Maid to the Philippines, it would be an instant hit and I would get rich for that at the age of 20).

Girl-Kuripot is Cooking Up a Storm so Watch Out for More!

Well, I just found that book again. It was the largest collection of Coca-Cola recipes ever written (in 1994) and majority of the ingredients are simple and available in the market. It was written by Elizabeth Candler Graham (the great-great granddaughter of the the founder of Coca-Cola, Asa Griggs Candler) and Ralph Roberts. Want to find out the Candler secret recipes, the Coca-Cola Story and how this pop culture icon evolved into our tables (eventually into Western food)? It's all discussed in Classic Cooking with Coca-Cola. It is THE Real Thing (although it was written outside of the Coca-Cola Company)! There's actually a tip at the back of the book that recommends giving your car a Coke for clean windows (context: when "you are driving through pouring rain and have trouble seeing through the build up of road film on your windshield")!

On drinking and using Coke as a food ingredient: Read the text in this picture closely.

I'm not sure if you can find Classic Cooking with Coca-Cola here in the Philippines or if they still print new ones but you can get it at this link for a cheaper price. You can buy the 1998 version at this link. I actually wanted to include some recipes in the book during one of my Friday Munch posts, what do you think (comment below for your feedback)? Coke products are a staple in Filipino houses, right? Most of the recipes here call for Coke, Sprite and Minute Maid. I'm sure I'll find something in the book and learn how to cook better in the process (like The Julie/Julia Project). I figured having an expert by my side (a member of the Coca-Cola first family) might make you try my Friday Munch Posts and might make it more regular (you'll find it in Girl-Kuripot archives now). Friday Munch Posts are all about mixing ingredients that I happen to have in my house (so I won't have to spend more and get dressed to buy stuff outside for that lazy day).

Anyway, I also wanted to tell you more about Minute Maid in this post. I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Some would say, "Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible?" So I thought maybe... I could do a better job of convincing you by giving you a month's supply of Minute Maid Pulpy!
