Coke to launch coffee-infused Coke Blak

Talk about being extremely wired!


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.

I wonder what that will taste like? A combo of coke and coffee infusion.....I like coke and I like coffee...but the two mixed? Hmmmm, and there are already so many energy and caffeine-induced energy drinks on the market. Do we really need another one? No less one that WILL discolor your teeth?

I like coffee, but not too much of it. And I like the flavored creamers in it.

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 actually liked clear pepsi and pepsi blue... and almost every variation on colas, though I tend to prefer the original. This, however, looks promising.

I love Pepsi. I love Pepsi caffeine free especially and could drink it by the gallon I swear! Pepsi lime is also quite good. Especially coupled with a bit of Captain Morgan

Okay, I take one thing back. Any soda+lime=

Though diet coke lime was okay the first few times. Lemon is for more suitable.
