Sprite: The Sober Truth A major foodie, Avi is so wrecked from a late night partying with coworkers that the farm-to-table Italian fare in front of us holds no allure. I summon our waiter for a Sprite on the rocks. After downing the beverage, Avi is noticeably perkier. "I had really intense heartburn, and not necessarily queasiness, but I didn't have room in my stomach," he explains. "After drinking a sweet, bubbly thing, I don't feel like I have heartburn anymore."
"I was worried that I couldn't even drink it because I felt so unwell, and now I feel like I can eat again," he says brightly, tackling his ravioli in cream sauce with renewed gusto.
However, a mere 10 minutes later, Avi's heartburn--and pout--return. So much for Sprite (and, for that matter, pasta).
