New York (CNN Business) Coca-Cola has another new flavor. This time, it got some help. The latest product out of Coca-Cola Creations — Coke's innovation platform, which brought us starlight and pixel-flavored sodas — is a collaboration with Marshmello , a masked DJ and electronic music producer. If you think the artist worked with Coke to develop a marshmallow-flavored beverage, you're wrong. Instead, the new flavor has notes of strawberry and watermelon, Marshmello's favorites. "For our third Coca-Cola Creations drop, we sought to add an unexpected remix of flavors to a great Coca-Cola taste," said Oana Vlad, senior director of global strategy at the company, in a statement announcing the collaboration Wednesday. "We created a vibey blend of my favorite flavors in this all-new mix," Marshmello said in a statement. "I think it tastes amazing and I hope fans love it too."

Raise your hand if this thought — an actual quote from a real-life CEO — crosses your mind a few times a day: "I just want to go sit at the beach and do nothing." That's what Andrew Formica, the 51-year-old chief executive of Jupiter Fund Management, told Bloomberg this week after he suddenly announced he's leaving the $68 billion asset management fund after three years at the helm (and a long career in finance). Which just illustrates how deeply the mood around work has shifted during the pandemic. The rank-and-file are disgruntled. So are middle managers. And executives aren't feeling great, either (they're just paid much, much better).

I f anybody had said to me I would end up in the food business, I would have said, ‘What are you smoking?’ ” says Daniel Lubetzky , the 50-year-old founder of Kind Healthy Snacks . “I never thought in a thousand years I would be selling food.” Maybe that’s because Lubetzky isn’t really selling food. Rather he is peddling health and altruism, at least the cheap sort you can buy in a 1.4-ounce fruit-and-nut snack bar drizzled with chocolate. Clues to Lubetzky’s deeper ambitions abound in his office decor: On one wall hang framed photos of him with Pope Francis, President Barack Obama and Shimon Peres, the late president of Israel. Books about the Middle East line another. Motivational quotes from the likes of Gandhi, Mother Teresa and the Dalai Lama are painted in the hallways.

The first, glorious taste of sweet champagne from the Stanley Cup in 21 years only wet everybody’s whistle. Avalanche Country thirsts for a big gulp of glory. With a strong core built to last around defenseman Cale Makar and center Nathan MacKinnon, dare we dream of a hockey dynasty? The Avs could be the guiding light in the dawning of a new golden age of pro sports in Colorado, with quarterback Russell Wilson throwing touchdown passes for the Broncos when not sitting alongside his Denver peeps, leading cheers for Gabe Landeskog or Nikola Jokic. As the Cup was waltzed around the ice during giddy moments immediately after a 2-1 victory against Tampa Bay clinched the championship on a steamy Monday night in Florida, the newly crowned champs approached franchise owner Stan Kroenke, who has built a sprawling sports empire that spans the globe from Los Angeles to London. “The minute I came down here,” said Kroenke, surrounded by reporters in Amalie Arena, “the players were … [Read more...] about Kiszla: Can Avalanche build a dynasty despite harsh economic realities of NHL?
