  • The return of Vanilla Coke

    According to a recent article in the AJC, Vanilla Coke will be coming back this year, along with Vanilla Coke Zero (no word if it's going to be Diet Coke or Coke Zero based, though I suspect the latter).

    "The company also has plans for a Vanilla Coke Zero that will be rolled out with the reintroduction later this year of Vanilla Coke, which was put on "hiatus" in 2005 after sales plummeted."

            Thanks for the link, jblaviback!

            No doubt that from Ivester, Daft and Isdell... Isdell is the one who is making a good job as The Coca-Cola Company's CEO

              I hope that this ends up true...I will believe it when I see it.
              I am looking for Mello Yello in glass bottles and Diet Mello Yello in can or bottle...if you find them let me know where you got them, thank you in advance.

                This is GREAT news! Especially since I am on my last 12 pack of Vanilla Coke. I stocked up right before they stopped carrying it.

                Vanilla Coke is still in some soda fountains in the US so I dont think the brand was ever "fully" discontinued.

                Anyways I can't wait till Vanilla Coke is back on store shelves.

                  is it going to be a "reformulated" flavor?

                  i hope so!!!

                  to a lot of us, the old version just tasted too artificial and not like REAL vanilla.

                    I don't think they're going to mess with it, and I wouldn't want them to either. I like the taste of Vanilla Coke. If I want a "real" vanilla flavor, I can easily get regular Coke with a vanilla flavor shot.

                    But w00t!! to Vanilla Coke coming back, and I can't wait to try Vanilla Coke Zero.

                      I tried one of the sample 20 ounce from our sales center and it tasted like the old Vanilla Coke to me

                        i wonder why they discontinued it... only to re-introduce it as the same thing. seems like it would cost them money.

                          Probably because they realized it has a considerable following even if it's not a huge seller, and also because Black Cherry Vanilla was a flop from day one.

                              The diet version will be replaced with a Coke Zero-based version, from what I am hearing.
