    Big deal. It will flop, same as Kona Pepsi did years ago. The idea is nothing new.
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    It will flop because people will expect it to be more like their other flavor coke pops. (coke vanilla,cherry,lime and lemon). In my opinion Coke should make a new "wiz bang" coffee drink that has the smoothness of say Yoo Hoo but the coffee taste of a good shot of espresso.

    IMO....Coke with flavors and or coffee is a dead duck in a large pond. Saint is right, this new Coke beverage will flop.

    True words from Ramon.

    Personally, I look forward to this cola, just because I love coffee and cola so much by themselves.

    So what if it tastes bad? If more companies took leaps of faith like this, we'd have some great products on our hands.

    I'd definitely like to give this a try. I never got to have Pepsi Kona and I wish it had been released around here.

    The packaging will catch peoples' eyes, but they have to advertise it so people know what it is. I'm sure we are going to hear a lot of "ewws" from people when they find out it's cofee flavored cola.

    BTW, How does that Pepsi Kona tasted? It was good? It was bad?

    In Thailand they launched something similar: Pepsi Latte

    Here's a picture I found in flickr


    More info here (does anybody speak Thai here?)

    i'm not really a coffee drinker, but i'm kind of looking forward to this (just because i like to try "new" things).

    the packaging looks cool (the silvery metal cans), though coke may be introducing too many new products at once. i mean, there's STILL confusion as to what, exactly, coke zero is (though i think consumers are finally catching on).

    also, the fact that blak is actually C2 with coffee in it might also confuse people, since even fewer people know what C2 is than Zero even. LOL!

    either way, i'll try it.

    oh. i was also interested to know that pepsi is going to beat coke to the market (again). though, that name, "pepsi max cino" is AWFUL, in my opinion. BLAK sounds much better.
