I was just about to post this, but Ramon beat me to it.

I want to point out, however, that these new products will not be a chocolate cola, like this beautiful, high-resolution image (http://www.bevnet.com/bevboard/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=003767) would suggest.

I have to give kudos to the image. It's quite a masterpiece.

So, it will be a flavored milk product like what Starbucks has on the market? I have very high hopes that this new drink will be as good as it should be. Just judging from the picture the art work looks very classy. Now if they can sell it for less than $5 a 4pk, that would be super nice. smile.gif

Well, the bottles are smaller, which makes me think it will be quite expensive. It's definitely going to be a premium product.

Looks like they are after a piece of the Frapachino pie.

Godiva is one heck of a premium brand name. YUM

Campbell's Soup owns the Godiva brand. They already use the name for chocolates, coffee, and liquer. Coke is licensing the name for use on RTD coffee drinks.

Anyone notice the bottle is the same one they used for Planet Java?

These drinks are the real answer to Frap, not Blak.

Coke did the smart thing this time -- go with an already established brand name, rather than buying up another unknown company like Planet Java.
