Coke with Coffee launched in the United States on January 24—a long time after it’s been available internationally. This Coke is made with Brazilian coffee, and available in two flavors: caramel and vanilla.
If you are like me and you thought that Coke already had a certain dose of caffeine, this Coke with Coffee is a whole different ball game. Each 12-ounce bottle has 69 milligrams of caffeine (that’s almost half as much caffeine that you can find in a 12-ounce cup of coffee, but definitely more than what’s in a can of Coke). The new product comes at a time when the company is planning to cut its portfolio in half. But seeing as it’s been experimenting with this new blend for years (in 2006 they launched Coca-Cola BlāK—a coffee-flavored version of Coke). Coca-Cola BlāK totally flopped and the company discontinued its production.
I, myself, am a huge fan of Coca-Cola, and love having the occasional can with a meal every once in a while. However, it was always a choice for me between Coca-Cola or coffee after lunch. I’m pretty thrilled that they have combined the two now and I can enjoy both in the same beverage.
