Coke Plus Coffee

# 88 I don’t expect many or even anyone on here has tried this yet. It was recently launched (around two weeks ago, I think) exclusively for Australia. It is Coca-cola Plus Coffee. So it is a combination of the original Coca-cola with a taste of real coffee from Brazil. Many were thrown off by the idea of double caffeine dose. But it says that while it has a bit more of caffeine than the classic Coca-cola, it is still less than the same amount of regular latte. I don’t usually drink soda much at all. But my husband was curious of the taste so he bought a bottle of 600ml pictured. I only took a sip and he drank the rest. It says no sugar but it has a sweet caramel-like taste. It has a similar taste of Coke Vanilla, except that this one obviously has the taste of coffee.

I cannot stand the taste of Coke and I will not ruin my coffee for a test.

Yes, you would probably better off staying away from this product...

@sishy7 I have always thought that Coke has the taste of a bad medicine.

@LadyDuck And I'm not sure how they chose Australia to try out this new flavor... They probably thought we're a nation of coffee-lovers who would be easily sold of this new idea...

Usually that combination would @sol_cee but when cramming for exams I am betting a bunch of students are reaching for this. Don't you think so ?

I can't "picture" the taste of that . . . I wonder if it could be achieved by making my own batch . I'm not big on soda, but I do enjoy black coffee . . . I would try it if it ever comes here! I think of Red Bull, or that Jolt . . . but I think those have super amounts of caffeine in it.

I like iced coffee but this did not hit me even as iced coffee... I think the carbonated coffee taste is just too strange for me.

@sishy7 Bubbly coffee - yah, that would be strange! So it's more coffee tasting than Coke? Is it becoming very popular out there?

@much2say I'm not sure how popular it is... They're pretty new, maybe not many have tried them yet... But the few that I know have tried it were not too thrilled about this new taste of Coke.

@enlightenedpsych2 I'm never really completely off soda; I do have soft drinks once in a blue moon but in a very small amount like a small glass. I can't even finish a whole 375ml (around 12 fl oz) soda can in one go without feeling bloated... I usually have the light-colored carbonated beverage though like Sprite or 7up instead of Coke or Pepsi...

Were you a fan of this type of coke Sishy? Coke has sort of a distinct flavor. It is definitely a different idea. We'll see if it is a good one?

Can't say that I'm a fan of Coke, but I don't mind the taste of classic Coke. This new flavor, however, is too strange for me to like it...

@sishy7 If I want soda with a little vanilla flavor I buy A&W Cream soda which tastes very good. I've gotten away from drinking coke, but I don't mind it.

Hmmm...I think I'll pass. I like Coke. Well, I like Coca-Cola, never did like Coke, too expensive for one thing. And I like coughee. But Coke and coughee just doesn't sound like a combination I would like. Kind of like bacon-flavored ice cream. Just nope. (Edit) - While we're on the subject, I saw an idiot snort a line of instant coughee once...

@sishy7 Pretty has been drinking diet soda since she started losing weight. I have no idea how she can stand that stuff! I did try the soda when they switched it back to pure sugar. I didn't like it! (That surprised me! I thought it would taste so much better than what we had been getting... SMH! I won't make that mistake again!) You do realize that just because something is sugarless that doesn't mean whatever they use to sweeten it is healthier for you than plain sugar, right? Apparently, all of the artificial sweeteners we use today have something negative about them in regards to our health. Granted, none of the artificial sweeteners are as harmful as pure sugar, but still...

@sishy7 Drink companies are all trying to come up with new gimmicks to compete in different markets. Seems as if they are trying to reinvent the wheel.

As far as I know it's a limited edition flavor only in Australia and they tried out the same flavor with sugar in Japan.
