I love a slice of real lemon or lime in my Coke, but those preflavored ones have the nastiest chemical aftertaste.

Coffee cola...eh. I'll stick with my two double espressos every morning.

Oh god I remember that to.....and I think I even tried it too!

But I don't think I would be very interested in this Coca-Cola Blak...or whatever it's called....I only like Mocha flavored drinks.

(And I don't like the taste of coffee)

Dr Pepper.....Mmmmmmm, but I prefer Diet Dr Pepper, it's not so sweet

I remember the Pepsi Blue.....that was a bomb. The clear Pepsi just didn't taste the same....and I would try a new drink just to try it, never know.....might like it!

I remember the Pepsi Blue. I practically overdosed on that stuff. It got to be too much after awhile though. I did try the Coke Zero and that was hideous. I think the lime one is disgusting too.

for all time weird sodas, what about o.k. cola? apparently it was a right wing conspiracy to make young people apathetic, and thus help republcians get back into power!

O.K. Cola Mannifesto - wikipedia

I'd like to force the world to sing

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO - news), the world's No. 1 soft drink company, on Wednesday said it will launch a coffee-infused soft drink called Coca-Cola Blak in various markets around the world in 2006.

The news of the launch came hours before Coke Chief Executive Neville Isdell was scheduled to address financial analysts and investors in New York.

The new drink, a combination of Coca-Cola Classic and coffee extracts, will be first launched in France in January before being rolled out in the United States and other markets during 2006.

A Coke spokesperson said Coca-Cola Blak will be a mid-calorie drink, similar to Coca-Cola C2, which was launched in April 2004 and contains half the sugar, calories and carbohydrates of regular colas. The formula for the new beverage is expected to vary based on local tastes.

Analysts have said one of the keys to the company's future is capturing more consumers who have moved away from sugary soft drinks to diet versions, or to healthier low- or no-calorie beverages.
They're phasing out VANILLA COKE for this bullshit?

Ha! I totally forgot I posted about this. I saw it the other day and I was puzzled as to why they had this out.

I haven't tried it yet and I don't think I ever will.

I definitely tried it, and it was rather but strangely addicting. I had it when it was kinda warm though (like room temperature) so I think it may be better if it was chilled.

I couldn't stop drinking it, because I bought it, but finally I found my sicko friend who's obsessed with the stuff and he took it for me

I like it. It just tastes like Coke with a hint of coffee.

A guy I work with had some the other day. He seemed to enjoy it...he didn't throw up or anything.

I though Pepsi Clear was pretty decent. They had a huge marketing campaign behind it too
