In Omikron, soda ingredients are Overtly harmful to your health, and not hidden away in the list of ingredients but loudly proclaimed. This is increasingly accurate satire, and is distinct from exposition of the plot.
Several food items and beverages can be purchased by the player, and are advertised on Transcan holographic TVs during the game. There are two drinks; Quanta Cola and Kloops Beer. An advertisement for Quanta Cola is seen at the beginning of the trailer for the game, claiming it contains radioactive Quanta extract and can lead to the "early destruction of your brain cells". Kloops Beer is, "the one beer to have when you're having more than one". Chocovat is advertised as a confectionery that contains tungsten hydrogen extract.
Transcan is also used as a device for propaganda for the Ix governance.
