View Full Version : Diet Coke with Lime-- here to stay?

I know quite a few people who like Diet Coke with Lime, including myself, and I was just wondering if Coke is going to keep producing it? I haven't heard much about sales. Thanks!

I have not heard of any plans to cut Diet Lime at this time. CCBCC sales it these packages for now:20oz, 2ltr, 4pk PET 12oz(for a limited time) and 12pk can. It would not surprise me if this flavor went to just 12pk cans sometime in the future.

it is doing moderate, not great and not bad. most likely will be only in cans eventually i agree.

Will eventually I think have some availablity problems and only be available in certain regions. Bottlers like Consolidated will stick around w/it longer I think than some like Central, who want to pull the plug a little sooner.
It will be scaled back in the future, as I think Vanilla Coke soon will be.

Vanilla Coke is withering on the vine. I think we've axed 24 pk cans and 24oz 6pk bottles so far. I wish they'd get rid of the 16.9oz 6pk. It just takes up space on the shelf. I've pulled the 2L off my permanent endcaps, because it just doesn't sell. Cherry sells a hell of a lot better.
Lime is doing really well. Much better than Lemon ever did.

Lime is doing well here, we have 20 ounce, 2 liter, and fridge packss, and I don't see anything getting cut soon. On the other hand, in the last year we've cut Vanilla Coke in 24 packs can, 1 liter, and 1/2 liter, and I'd guess 2 liter will go soon too, leaving only 20 ounce and fridgepacks.

Vanilla Coke (Coca-Cola vainilla) is my favorite, unfortunately the soda is being cut due to low sales here in Mexico, In Aguascalientes they sold it in 600ml bottles recently, but all the bottles became due on August 10th, and they had to retire all the rest of the bottles. The same is happening with Fresca Toronja Rosa (Pink Grapefruit) and the same happened with Manzana Lift Verde (Green Apple).
