The coke man I spoke with in the grocery store the other day told me that they have not seen nor tasted it yet. They were just told that it was coming sometime in the future.

I'm going to give Coke Blak a try. It is cheaper than *STARBUCKS*,hopefully.

is it going nationwide or just in a test area?

Several products like this have failed in the past...Mazagran, Pepsi Kona, others I can't remember. Just not sure how cola and coffee fit together...I drink both colas and coffee, but mixing them sounds nasty to me.

My SCM has samples of this stuff in his office.

Without a doubt one of the most vile beverages I've had in a while. I didn't taste the Coke. It just tasted like carbonated coffee to me.

I tried Blak yesterday...its one of those beverages that makes you go HMM. Coke did a good job of mixing cola and coffee flavors...its an interesting drink. But its just a little too different for the mainstream IMO. Its not particularly tasty or enjoyable...just interesting and different. I think the sales that come from this will be based on curiosity and interest...but based on my trial yesterday, I wouldn't expect many repeat sales.

So your saying that it does not have some sort
of "smoothness" or a hint of "creaminess" to it? I agree, it will not appeal to the masses and will die off in 2007.

I still will try it a few times.

Not really...you taste both the cola and coffee but it didn't seem like a smooth, creamy beverage...that probably would have made it better.
