A member of the Las Cruces community has discovered a new side-effect of Mug Diet Root Beer.
The pioneering female, who wishes to remain anonymous, was drinking a can of the liquid in the afternoon on a Sunday afternoon. Suddenly, without warning, her diaphragm was thrown off rhythm and a fit of hiccups ensued. She told the Las Cruces Beat that they were the worst hiccups she had ever experienced.
But abnormal breathing patterns weren't the only, or worst, of the effects. A disturbing pain in the woman's eye developed. It worsened with each breath, which caused her to report the ill-effects of the drink.
Since this discovery, no repeat cases have been reported. Members of the community are asked to continue drinking the refreshing caffeine-free drink without worry.
