I say it simply because it annoys pedantic types.

You're right, annoys me too!
It should be "Full sugar" coke rather than fat

I'd argue that concerning yourself with it is pretty dumb.

I think it's because coke can make you fat.

All that sugar in it...

It is because there is lots of sugar in 'full fat coke' whereas there is non in diet coke (which uses sweetners instead).
The sugar adds up to a lot of calories, and it is actually the calories that can cause you to become fat (as your body stores fat when there is an excess in calories, that it doesn't need).

The term full fat probably partially comes from the fact that the non sugar coke is 'diet' coke, which suggests that the normal coke has more fat in it (as people associate being fat with fat content).
