Default Mmm, Vanilla Coke?

Coke launching vanilla Coke on May 15

ATLANTA - Soft drink giant Coca-Cola Co. (NYSE:KO), facing a stiff challenge from archrival PepsiCo Inc. (NYSE: PEP) in the crucial North American market, on Monday unveiled a new vanilla-flavored version of its flagship Coke brand.

Atlanta-based Coca-Cola, the world's No. 1 soft drink company, said it would begin distributing the drink in the United States on May 15. A separate roll-out is planned for Canada several weeks later.

Coca-Cola said it expected the new drink, which had been on the drawing boards for several months, would appeal to a wide swath of consumers, though company executives conceded it might cut into sales of other soft drink brands in the short term.
Who thinks they may like this? Sounds interesting, but I haven't had anything of the sort.

I think this is a desperation move by Coke after losing their NFL deal.

Coke sucks

I'll try it. Don't think I'll like it, though.

Speaking of soft drinks (or soda or pop, depending on your location), has anyone tried Surge or Josta? I don't know if they are made anymore, but I used to love that stuff back in the day.

Hmm.... Surge I think but I'm not sure so obviously it didn't stick with me. My fav kind of POP ( ) Pepsi.. but sometimes I go through spells where I'm completely addicted to only 7-UP and Mountain Dew.

Josta was like a cherry-ish Coke product. Tons of caffeine. Surge was like Sprite, but more edgy. Lots of caffeine.
