The term is Hyper-Palatability... Coke has it, but coffee does not.
Meaning you can get tired of drinking coffee, especially if you add FAT to it (real cream).

So, by having so many flavors, it allows you to switch between different flavors of coffee,
which creates a version of hyper-palatability. THUS allowing you to drink more coffee.

I discovered this phenomena as I lost over 100lbs. One of the "tricks" was to limit your daily intake to 2 foods, high fat (bacon and avocado) for 2-3 days straight. SURPRISE, your ability to be full kicks back in, and you are no longer hungry all the time. (to be clear, for the first 30 days, your ADDICTION to carbs is begging you to carb up... But since you have limited your choice to specific foods AND you are really not hungry, you body tells you: "No Thankyou!").

So, it will continue to happen. Because it is a profitable thing to do, that keeps people eating.

Now, I have all but stopped eating out (I prefer making my own food where I know/trust the ingredients). I no longer buy coffee (in the states, I always preferred Dunkin Donuts Coffee).
And I am healthier now than anytime in the last 25 years!

Don't let them HACK your brain with these choices. I bet you INTERNALLY KNEW it was a problem!
