Black Cherry Vanilla Coke

No fun links again today but here it is: Coke announced last wk that it'll intro Black Cherry Vanilla Coke in January. Which, whatever, but check out the line of b.s. here: "Cherry-flavored beverages are experiencing significant growth," acc/to the Cokesperson statement, who goes on to call the combo of cola + black cherry + vanilla "innovative". Innovative. Is it possible – and this seems hard to believe, Coke being such a big corp w/ an undoubtedly well-staffed mktg dept* – they’ve never heard of Dr Pepper cherry vanilla? For that matter, howdya suppose sibling drink black cherry citrus fresca feels? Meanwhile, in the unlikely event that U R wondering how this'll affect other "innovative" products in the coke line: cherry coke stays but vanilla coke is history.


*give them credit for this: they've got jpegs of the new prod ready for download

While in medical school, Frist obtained cats from animal shelters, under pretense of adoption as pets, for school research experiments in which he killed the animals. In a 1989 autobiography, Frist described his deception in obtaining these shelter cats as "heinous and dishonest". He attributed his behavior to the pressures of school.

Sounds yummy to me.

Oh and DPCV, tastes neither like cherry, vanilla, nor Dr. Pepper, so in that way it is much like the Holy Roman Empire.

So it's goodbye to vanilla Coke? What a tragedy, what a disaster, what a - oh forget it, I don't give a shit.

Blech. The drink sounds like carbonated cough syrup to me.

I would think cherry-chocolate would be just as viable a cola flavor as cherry vanilla. Why hasn't anyone ever done a chocolate-flavored cola?

I TRIED TO ADOPT A BUNCH OF CATS FOR A BBQ, BUT COULDN'T COME UP WITH THE ADOPTION FEES. IT'S JUST AS WELL, THOSE MICROCHIPS CAN GET STUCK IN YOUR TEETH.

Hey Dogface... do you like fowl? Feel free to come over and use the BBQ. They're disease free too. Clean up the poop -- yours and theirs -- once you are done!

I suppose by now you've seen how that whore Oprah is denying the true love between me and Emilio ... I mean Katie. Oprah is just mad that I wouldn't give it to her because she is SO FAT! She's a BLIMP! She couldn't jump and down on a couch, because it'd BREAK to smithereens! She should just give it up and stay home, just like my sweet child katie is. She should stay home and push out a baby and cook! I bet she can't cook! I bet she just sits around and eats LARD! HA!

Peanut Gallery:

Canfield's beverages in Chicago has made a Chocolate Fudge and Diet Chocolate Fudge soda for years. Not my cup of tea, so to speak, but it has many devotees.

It's available at some of the online beverage distributors for about a dollar a can.

Kirk, I was thinking of a chocolate-flavored cola versus a chocolate soda.

Coke should only be white.

Ever have a Coke while/after eating chocolate cake? I think there is a very good reason not to mix the cola flavor and chocolate!

For an extra rush, grind up some peppermint and mix it with your coke.

Or wash down that shot of Pepto with a Coke. No THAT's good masochism.

Baby Luv bit me this weekend but I know it was by accident. Luckily it didn't stop me from shopping!! :)

And what was in that shopping cart? Another miniature dog to kill, one to abandon? A mini-elephant? A merkin?

kirk and tg: nice link on the jones sodas. and did you notice: they are LIMITED-EDITION sodas. we'll probably be able to find them at 7-eleven.

Our cats are partial to the Smoked Salmon Pate!

 
At November 16, 2005 12:23 PM, Blogger Scott Roche said...

Bad news is:
The artificially flavored salmon soda will be offered as part of a $13 “regional holiday pack” that also includes other unusual sodas such as turkey & gravy, corn on the cob, broccoli casserole and pecan pie.

While those five bottles will be offered locally, Jones Soda is also selling its similarly-priced “holiday pack” of turkey and gravy, wild herb stuffing, brussels sprout, cranberry and pumpkin pie sodas across the country.

IOW, to get to try this you'd have to live out west. I'd love to try the Pecan Pie, oh well.

If I can find a bottle up here, I'll bring it to NYCE HQ for evaluation.
