    Default Japan gets Coca-Cola Orange

    http://kotaku.com/hey-japan-have-som...ola-1655357756

    Coca-Cola has recently released an orange flavored Coca-Cola in Japan. I imagine it is similar to Germany's MezzoMix and the orange Coca-Cola you can get from a Freestyle machine.

    I found some on Ebay, I may pick up a few if I can get a deal on combined shipping. I love MezzoMix. Though it is a bit expensive - $1.99 for a sleek 12 ounce can at Wegmans. Wish Coke would do LTO flavors for Coca-Cola.

    Yep. I get it quite often.

    Probably won't be around next June, I think it is a LTO. I bit the bullet and ordered a few bottles off Ebay.

    How much did it cost you with shipping?

    I've had the Orange Coke from the freestyle machine before and I didn't care for it. It had a cinnamon taste. Im sure the actual Coke Orange in a bottle tastes better though.

    The freestyle version is pretty strong. The Japanese version is quite mellow. I will have to try a can of MezzoMix I picked up from Wegmans to make the complete comparison.

    What's odd is that I ordered four bottles, but the seller shipped them two bottles at a time to save on shipping costs (apparently one big box costs a lot more then two small ones). But only one showed up today.

    The Japanese version also seems holiday oriented - one cap had a polar bear head on it, the other had a wrapped present on it.
