Coca Cola in May announced with great fanfare the return of coke vanilla and coke zero vanilla...when I returned from holiday to my home in Long Island, I did find some available for about two or three weeks. Since then, I have not seen it available at all in any size package.

Just got back from a week on the left coast and did not see Coke zero vanilla available except in one convenience store where I found a 20 oz. bottle....

Question...is coke zero vanilla still being made...I haven't seen any annoucement of its demise.

Coke zero cherry is available only sporadically...haven't found any in many grocery stores for a while although I found on 2 liter bottle at the Wal Mart in Valley Stream.

What the hell is ging on with these flavors?

i find cherry coke zero at one local supermarket, so i'm happy about that. i'm not sure how it's doing other places.

i have know idea about vanilla coke zero. i see it from time to time at c-town.

Vanilla is 12 pack and 20oz only now, Vanilla Zero in 12 packs only. I don't think the brand ever took off again.

Cherry Zero, otoh, does very well for us in Maryland. We dropped Diet Cherry Coke not long after Cherry Zero came out, and we still have Cherry Zero in 12 packs, 2 liters, and 20oz.

Coke Zero is the one getting the big push - we carry it in 2L, 12 pack, 20oz, 16.9oz 6pk, 12oz 8pk, and 24 pack cans.

I was actually lucky enough to stumble upon one lone sucrose Vanilla Coke 12 pack when I was in ABARTA Coke territory the other day.

i don't really like the vanilla versions. they still have the same, artificial flavor as before. if they flopped once, then why re-introduce the same flavor? they should've reworked it. it's no wonder it can't be found anywhere.

even so, since you like it, i hope you find it.

How can anybody say the product was not doing well...it was onlyavailable for about two weeks...there were lots of people who liked vanilla coke, diet coke vanilla and coke zero vanilla but were not given a chance. At my supermarket, almost as soon as they put it out, it sold out.

Matha, i just saw three 12-packs of vanilla coke at the C-town on 89th and 1st Ave in Manhattan. They're $4.99 though ($6.01 with tax). that's the only place i ever see it. this particular store has it pretty regularly. they often have vanilla coke zero as well.

Both products are still in stores here in Colorado. But, as Fusion said, in 12 packs or 20oz bottles.

I have always love the flavor of Vanilla Coke, but of course that opinion is subjective. Coke Zero Vanilla taste much better that Diet Vanilla Coke.

Fine but what happened to the 2 liter bottles I was able to buy in July?
