I’ve gone ahead and tried the Coke “Blak”.
I found the sigle bottle marked at $1.49 at my local D&W with a $0.40 coupon attached, so I caved.
It is not two great tastes that go great together. I love Coca-Cola. I enjoy one from time to time. I like the Cherry-Coke, and if you put syrup into coke you can make some great flavor combinations. Vanilla, Strawberry, Stranilla! Some people like a chocolate coke (tried it, didn’t like it)
I do think the Coke company has messed up the flavors after Cherry. The Lemon-pledge Coke was abysmal. The Vanilla Coke was good for the first two-liter, then it started tasting like caopectate. I tried the black-cherry-vanilla sample in the grocery store. It’s just plain wrong. The Lime is actually better in the diet than in the regular, but it still doesn’t hold a candle to actually squeezing limes into Coke.
Putting coffee flavoring into Coke was not a good idea. +1 on the packaging though.
A side note –
Carbonated water, high fructose corn syrup, caramel color, natural flavors, coffee extract, phosphoric acid, potassium sorbate and potassium benzoate (to protect taste), caffeine, aspartame, acesulfame potassium
High fructose corn syrup AND aspartame?
What’s the point of that?
maybe it’s just me…
