View Full Version : My dream
01-07-2002, 10:10 PM
After being plugged into this heartless business for more calendar flips than I can remember, I think I'm getting close to fulfilling a lifelong dream.
I have long wanted to put a pure cinnamon cola out on the market-- a product I would lovingly call "Cinnful." After many years, I may finally have my chance.
An angel investor, fat from late 90's dot com profits, has given me some first round funding to explore the possibility of putting Cinnful out on the market. Lots of people out there love the taste of cinnamon, so a cinnamon flavored cola is a natural.
If Cinnful were to take off, I want to do nutmeg and anise colas.

Sign me up for samples! Hey Concord, do you have enough dotcom dough to get a hold of Crush?

Just out of curiosity, is this the same angel whose lips are not as sweet as vanilla frappachino?
Dr Pepper / Seven Up sold a drink called 7Up cold for a little while. Not bad but tasted more like a Nehi Golden Ale...great with bourban.
Interesting flavor idea and as we know flavors are growing

Jack, 7-up Gold? You must be an old guy like me to remember that one!

7up had 2 cola's.
Like Cola which came out about 20 years ago,it lasted a few years.
7up Gold came out in 1987 and lasted till 1988
maybe they will try a 3rd attempt

Remembering 7-Up Gold makes one old? I remember it :( :( .
Like can still be found in the Scranton, Pa area.

I've got a bunch of 16oz returnable Like deposit bottles (empty) in my garage!
Hey, I have even the really old Like bottle caps from the early '60's when it was the name of the drink that was destined to be called Diet 7up. It is of the era of Tab, Diet Rite, etc when the big companies were afraid to add their name to the word "diet". The bottle cap says "Diets Like Like".

I did not know they still sold Like Cola.
I also did not know it's been around that long, maybe it was not sold in my area at the time.

Did you ever launch this cola? Cinnamon is one of my favorite tastes!

I thought I was the only person left in the whole world who remembered 7 Up Gold! In fact I was starting to doubt wether or not it really ever existed it was so long ago. I think I liked it at the time, not enough to buy it a lot though.

Oh, by the way, A cinnamon Soda sounds good to. I would but it.
06-28-2002, 06:49 PM
Actually, I think I would "Buy" it, not "But" it.

Cinnful, that is a great idea. Release it around the holidays. Maybe add a touch a vanilla for good measure.

I love cinnamon. Someone needs to get on this!

Red Devil made a Power Cola, which was a cinnimin cola. It tasted like ASS. They had the cola flavor down, and the cin. flavor down, it just did not mesh well.

Ass flavored cola, huh? I'd give that a try.
