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.
