    Exclamation Coke Blak discontinued...

    http://www.bevnet.com/news/2007/08-3..._coca-cola.asp

    it's no mystery why this failed. it was WAY over-priced and it tasted like crap. hard to believe they spent 2 years developing this. what a waste!

    It will not be missed. The odd mixture of flavors from the aspartame, Ace-K, and Coke alone were enough to kill the drink. But then you figure out the insane pricing that Coke saddled it with. It was doomed from the start.

    You would have thought they would have learned from the previous cola/coffee phase.

    Coke Blak *might* of worked if they used purely sugar. They did not, and went for some bizard blend. It tasted odd, and for most american palates, it just wasn't good.

    yeah. the taste was "odd". i think that if they had made it with sugar, and creamy... it might've worked. also, the premium pricing was just too high... especially when there were better-tasting options out there.
