Sorry but that is FALSE.
People on TikTok are doing “healthy coke” and it’s as gross as it sounds.
Now, we all know that TikTok is the place for viral challenges and beauty tips, but it’s also the platform for finding the tastiest recipes. Remember when feta pasta had the internet in a chokehold? Or how about not being able to escape a video of someone eating rice, salmon and nori thanks to Emily Mariko’s viral recipe?
Well, now the hottest drink in town is apparently healthy coke. As you know, regular coke is full of sugar. According to the Coca-Cola website, there are 39 grams of sugar in a 12 oz can of Coca-Cola. However, the sugar content of Healthy Coke is much less.
And what’s in a healthy coke, I hear you cry? Well, the cursed concoction is made with balsamic vinegar and any type of sparkling water. Just take a glass, add a few drops of balsamic vinegar, fill the glass with sparkling water and voila, you have a healthy coke.

Apparently it tastes exactly the same as the real thing. The cursed drink appears to have been sparked by Amanda Jones’ TikTok video. Amanda pinched the recipe from her pilates instructor.
“It’s a healthy alternative to coke and I’m not kidding, it tastes like a coke. And you’re going to think I’m crazy,” Amanda said.
Amanda then pours a generous drizzle of balsamic vinegar into an ice-filled glass, before filling the rest of the cup with La Croix guava sparkling water. “It tastes like a coke and it’s healthy and it’s good for your health,” she said, swallowing it.
People are now making healthy coke to see if it really tastes like the real thing.
If you’re worried about your sugar intake and want to try a “healthy” version of Coke, you can do the unthinkable and… just buy Diet Coke or Coke Zero. The same taste of coke and absolutely no vinegar.
