Coca Cola Blak...Have You Tried It?

Has anyone tried this new Coke product? It is (as far as I can tell) a combo of Coke and coffee. I am curious what it tastes like, but I have only seen it in a 4 pack, with no price, and I am guessing I won't like it so I don't want to waste $ on something I am going to throw out. Has anyone tasted it yet? What did you think?

You're kidding right? Coke and coffee? EWWW! While I admit those are two of my favorite things, I can't see them together.

Yeah I am kind of sceptical as well, but curious none the less. I came so close to buying the 4 pack, but knew I would regret it if I did.

I think it would be more aptly named Coke BLECH! I dare you to try it and offer a review GB. Surely if you can find it in a 4 pack some convenience store will have a single you could try? A local Quickie mart?

I thought the same thing so I went to the two local quicky mart type places by my house. Neither had it. They did have the new Black Cherry Vanilla Coke which I had not tried yet so I got a bottle of that. It was as bad as I expected.

I will not give up looking for a single of the Blak and will certainly write a review here when I do.

As far as I know, it's not coffee and coca cola mixed together. It's coffee flavoured coca cola. Still though, I cant really imagine it tasting too good.

I'm in Canada and it hasnt been released here yet (I think it'll be here in 6 months or so) but I have read reviews of it and most people say it tastes sort of vanilly and coffee-esque, but mostly like cola.

GB- I have tried the black cherry vanilla diet coke and love it! Now THAT is a good combination.

I'm in agreement with you about the Black Cherry Vanilla coke. YUCK! Tastes like cough medicine to me. My daughter likes it though so we may end up buying it again at some point in the future.

I think I am a purist. To me Coke Classic is IT! I like the stuff with lime occasionally too but other than that forget it. No vanilla, no cherry, no other stuff.

Yeah I am a purist too Alix. Every 5 years or so I might have a cherry coke, but it really is that rare for me.

Yes grumblebee you are absolutely right. There is no real coffee in it. It is just a coffee flavor.
