If you grew up in the U.S. you probably have no problem recognizing this:
Ahh, the Coke polar bear--symbol of warm fuzzy feelings and campaigns that tell us all to "open happiness". If only you could buy happiness in a 12oz plastic bottle...life would be so much easier.

If you're struggling to kick the soda habit once and for all, Sparkpeople is a good place to start. Set up a custom goal so that you can track your progress. You'll be amazed at how fast the weight comes off when you stop wasting calories on liquid candy.
