I hope Vanilla Coke comes back.I do not
really care for Black Cherry Vanilla coke.
Vanilla Coke was doing good,do not fix it if it
is not broken.
If Dr.Pepper never came out with Cherry Vanilla
Doc,I do not think Coca Cola would have replaced
Vanilla Coke with BCV coke.They did that to compete with CV Dr.pepper.

Why would a company come out with a black cherry vanilla COLA to compete with a cherry vanilla SPICY CHERRY?

That makes no sense.

Vanilla Coke sales were in the toilet. Cherry has historically been a strong flavor, so I imagine the thought process was to invigorate the brand by introducing a second, strong selling flavor to the formula.

The other company's rolling out a Cherry Vanilla version of their core brand, let's do it too and capitalize on the Cherry Vanilla craze.

Capitalizing and competing are two different things, though.

You actually freely admit going into a CEC?

well since I have two kids and my girl has 3 and they just opened it here in this area, it not a bad thing to admit we went there.The kids had a blast and I found a little taste of something I thought was gone! Not a bad deal.

OMG! :eek: they're so lucky!

thanks for the update, fusion!

BTW... it's weird that they're using the same slogan as the american Pepsi Jazz

i think a caramel coke would taste better than vanilla.

Has anyone ever seen this by Coke? Maybe this could be a replacement for our Vanilla Coke fix. Trouble is finding the right amount of flavoring.

Wow, sorry that is so huge. I'm not sure how to shrink it I guess.

Many of the newer fountains being installed have flavor buttons on them.

Fusion,
Off hand do you have an idea of which
chain C-Store are switching to
the newer flavor fountains?
Have you heard if they are going
to show up in the Chicago area? Thanks

That fountain is from a Pilot truck stop. I have also seen flavor buttons on fountains in a few Subway locations.

They had that Flavorrage thing at a fountain at a C-store locally, but it is now gone. :(

I've seen those flavor buttons at some recently opened 7-Elevens. Of course, in one of the stores, the buttons aren't labeled, so you have to guess which flavor you're getting.

All things considered (finding the fountain,seeing the test label on here) It's seems that vanilla coke is more of a when not so much a if.To add food for thought the Chuck E Cheese I found the fountain at just a brand new location if this was a option from go how far off could a full reroll out be?

Vanilla Coke is available on all the Chuck E. Cheese locations I was told recently.
