Virgin Black Premium Cola is a drinkable beverage, but it lacks the characteristics that we'd expect to see in a "premium" cola. Specifically, the formulation uses high fructose corn syrup, which results in a somewhat syrupy consistency and a taste that's not much better than Coke or Pepsi. Perhaps the only tangible difference in flavor is that it's slightly less sweet. The packaging has potential to catch the consumer's eye, but our panel had mixed feelings on the look of the silver plastic bottle. Overall, this product is merely mediocre.
