Can anybody tell me if this is still being made?

Always a highlight of my trips to the med over the past couple of years the places i have been have not had it.

Its by far the nicest cola product i have ever tasted.

I am guessing nobody knows if Black Cola is still produced then...

From my travels around the Chicago area, I have never seen nor heard of Schweppes Black Cola.
I know that we have Schweepes Ginger Ale,Tonic Water and Seltzer water. From the Thanksgiving holiday to after New Years we have Schweppes CranBerry and another flavor that escapes my mind.

I never knew Schweppes had Black Cola, I tried their Grape and heard of Rasberry but no Black Cola.

Oh man its the best cola ever.

It was sold throughout Europe (well in Spansih owned countries)until about 2002 then all of a sudden i could not find stocks of it. I thought it was the places i was going but it seams like its been put to bed.

The cola had a very deep and rich flavour it tasted very like Soda Stream: American Cola.

By far the best cola ever bar non

I agree, it is the best cola I tasted ever as well. Iam looking for it for years as I first tasted it in the south of Spain around 1992. Never found it in another country after that. If somebody knows if it is still available somewhere, I would love to know!

Schweppes products here in the states are very limited. While over in the UK and Europe, there is a true variety.
In australia, they have hands down, the best soda made, Schweppes traditional lemonade.
Oh...man! That stuff is so lemony, fizzy and tasty!!!!

I remember a Schweppes ginger beer back in the 70’s that was kick ass. But I’m the only one who remembers it. Like some kind of twilight zone thing.

That’s very nice of you Zabe but you don’t have to lie just to make me feel sane.
