    Couldn't people have simply mixed vanilla syrup and Coke to create Vanilla Coke? (or sugarfree syrup and Diet Coke to create Diet Vanilla Coke?) What they were hoping to accomplish is beyond me.

    Vanilla Coke's numbers were in the dumps. Made sense to get rid of a dying brand.

      Glad someone else agrees with me. Maybe the numbers were low but they were not as low as Black Cherry Vanilla Coke or Coca-Cola Lime (as much as I like Coke with Lime), those 2 brands never really were popular to begin with when they were introduced. Maybe the graphics have something to do with it, who knows.

      I read the numbers before so I know Vanilla Coke sold more than Caffeine Free Coke in its last year, and they keep making Caffeine Free Coke. I think it was shelf space and to promote the bring more attention to the Black Cherry Vanilla Coke brand.

        I thought it was really stupid to get rid of the Vanilla/Diet Vanilla brand. It was great... I would drink mostly diet vanilla and every once in a while treat myself to a regular vanilla coke. BCV just isn't the same.

        As for coke with lime, popologist hit the nail on the head. Most people don't want to find flavor variations on normal soda, but when it comes to diet, they want more and more because diet just isn't as good.

        I would be fairly upset if they killed DC with lime... I drink a 20 oz every day with my lunch, and I enjoy it a lot. If they kill that, all I have left for diet colas that I want to drink will be Coke Zero and occasionally Vault Zero.
        Bring Fanta Limon to the US!

          i think vanilla coke is good in theory, but... the stuff tasted awful. if they could get it to taste more like "natural" vanilla, then i'd say bring it back, reformulated.

          otherwise, why bother.

            popologist,
            I so agree with you. IMO coke vanilla soda pop has a rather bitter taste. I tried to drink it a few times. A nice sweeter robust vanilla, sort of like the old time soda fountain ones made with sweet vanilla syrup. Now that would be good. [img]smile.gif[/img]

              I'm completely disagree... IMO natural or artificial, Vanilla Coke had a great taste... Dang, how I miss it...

                The vanilla "flavoring" was completely fake-tasting and overpowered the soda in the US version. The German version was 100% better, imho.

                  If you took coke, and added in the vanilla syrup you can get at the supermarket, would you get Vanilla Coke, or at least somthing like it?

                    Vanilla syrup, meaning the stuff near the coffee (Torani and/or Davinci).. not vanilla extract.

                    You'd get something much better than the old Vanilla Coke, in my opinion.

                      Oddly, I don't like the taste of vanilla syrup in my Coke however I liked the taste of Vanilla Coke.

                            seasonal flavors is a good idea.

                            the people who like vanilla or lime or black cherry can stock up during the season.

                            there simply isn't room on the grocery shelf for all those flavors, and they just end up competing with one another... and then they all suffer.
