Coca Cola Blak
Coke’s new bev, finally coming in Jan, is big-big news: Coca-Cola Blak, a soda combining cola + coffee. Coffee soda rocks cuz it's 1. fizzy 2. coffee-themed 3. not yet quite mainstream. in the 90s, Starbucks did Mazagran, an awesome coff soda tragically ahead of its time; Pepsi’s Kona also failed. But Ernest Borgnine’s daughter Nancy makes an intense coff soda (ltd avail), & Green Mountain Coffee just intro’d Double-Bean Elixirs, a line of coff sodas in 5 syrupy flavors. Most of those are pure coffee; but coffee-plus cola? Blak represents Coke’s latest attempt to gnaw off a piece of the Red Bull & Frappuccino mkt. Like those bevs, the 8-oz Blak is smaller than the usual 12-oz soda & said to have a "coffee-like" froth when poured.
