Have a Coke and a Smile!

From the Marketplace story from June 5, 2007:
SAM EATON: Sugar is an incredibly water-intensive crop. For one liter of Coke, it takes 250 liters of water to produce that sugar that goes into that Coke.

KAI RYSSDAL: Wait, say that one more time: 250 liters of water — that's plus or minus 50, 60 gallons — to make a liter of Coca-Cola.

Dayum. Think about that next time you crack open an ice cold Coke!
