  • C2 was botched from the beginning!

    bad advertising. stupid "premium" pricing. and then coke just gave up on it.

    i love it. but i'm surprised it's lasted this long.

    • MrP,
      I will add that core Coke drinkers desire either an all out sweet(HFCS/Sugar) and or an all out diet/no carbs soda pop. Coke C2 was not able to cultivate both desires. The C2 formula was 50% nasty and 50% not so nasty (LOL).... equals low overall cross demand...equals death of a brand serving two Masters. [img]smile.gif[/img]

      • you may be right about the "two masters" thing.

        also, once you figure in that coke zero tastes almost as good as C2, it's appeal lessens even more.

        still, i use it as a coke classic alternative with food. and drink coke zero most of the other time (at work, or as an afternoon pick-me-up).

        i only drink coke classic when at a restaurant, because i don't like diet coke, and C2 or zero are not usually available.

        • Zero tastes exactually like diet. They both suck. C2 is the best soda I have ever had. I am a die hard coke fanactic. When C2 came out, I thought, what a sweet idea and then the jacka**' are making it almost like the black market.

                I agree totally. Coke has several choices for diet soda, but only one half-calorie offering.

                  coca-cola messed up with C2 from the beginning.

                  first of all, the commercials were meaningless to most people. no one was sure what it was.

                  also, coke tried charging a "premium price"... for, basically, diet coke mixed with regular coke. and the public didn't buy it.

                  after that, they just kind of gave up on it.

                  i think with the right marketing, C2 could probably sell a lot better.

                  • If they had used cane sugar for the main sweetener instead of HFCS it might have sold at a premium. No HFCS procuct is ever going to make it at a premium price.

                    And yes, if they cut C2 I'd just buy Coke Zero and live with it. But I'd be happier if C2 would get a 2nd push and full support as a regular price product.

                    I currently drink about 10 C2s for every 1 Coke Zero I have.

                    If C2 had cane sugar in it I'd drink it non stop.
                    I have 12 packs in my fridge, closet, trunk, and occasionally in random locations.

                    • It's still available in fridgepacks around my parts (in the new box designs and everything).

                      And I actually think Zero tastes better than C2. YMMV.

                            i think C2 and Coke Zero, BOTH, deserve another launch.

                            i think, mostly, coke is just afraid that C2 will eat into Classic's sales, and Zero will cut into Diet Coke's.

                            but, my theory is, if people are buying something they like (with less calories), they'll drink MORE of it, and that could only be good news for coke's bottom line.

                            who's in-charge over there, anyway?!?

                            • I drink soooo much C2. We have it 2 for 2 right now and my husband and I drink 3 to 6 20 oz a day. We tried zero and cannot get past the after taste. Popologist......I never thought of it interfering with regular coke sales, and that's a good point, and too many are in charge over there.
