Strange flavor beverages


And finally:

I can’t tell any difference between this and regular Cherry Vanilla Coke. Seriously.

Anyone here who finds this flavor, please try it to confirm the flavor. I want to make sure I’m not going crazier than I already am…



@maousadao finally tasted that mtn dew cherry it was ok


I usually don’t drink energy drinks, but wanted to try the flavor.

It kinda tastes like coffee and Swiss Miss hot cocoa mixed together :thinking:


They brought back regular Vanilla Coke!


OMG! A blast from the past! Haven’t had one of these since around 2000! (So somewhat around 19 years!)


Story Time. Back in the mid 1980’s I was working as a Temp for Frito-Lay in their headquarters building on the NorthWest Expressway in Dallas, Texas. The Building belonged to a Bank and housed a Small Mall on the first floor complete with an extensive selection of restaurants.

Frito-Lay being a part of Pepsico none of the restaurants served anything other than Coke products, this during the height of the Cola Wars.

One of the restaurants was A Beta Test Site for Cherry Coke. So, at least in part, the taste of Cherry Coke was defined / refined using feedback from Pepsi employees and Me since I filled out their survey every time I ate in that restaurant.

So I have you to thank in partial for the spectacular cherry flavor of Cherry Coke.

You sir are a legend, I am humbled.


Me? A legend, not so much.

I do remember that the first time I got Cherry Coke from the dispenser it was, shall we say, less than spectacular. Once my stint as a Frito-Lay temp was over, I went to work for one of their suppliers, the taste had been refined to the one we are familiar with. Then it was just a matter of time waiting for it to appear on store shelves.

I’d be interested in that if they put it in the Mexican glass bottle Coca-Cola . Though the two flavors they did the peach and raspberry were not that good so probably end up like vanilla orange cough syrup tasting cola .


I’m curious about this flavor actually. Wondering if it will be similar to the orange flavor from the Freestyle machines :thinking:

@psychopuppet I can already see the cultutal disputes over Mexican Coke. It’s bad enough that you can only find it in certain locations, but they’d have to rename it if they started manufacturing it here in the states…

Also, guess I was in the minority who liked the Peach glass bottle Coke…
