Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Coca-Cola announces a new flavor due to hit stores February 10th. Taking one successful flavor and a flavor that didn’t perform so well, Cherry Vanilla Coke is their new flavor creation.
Cherry Coke was first introduced in 1985 and has remained. Vanilla Coke was introduced in 2002 and scrapped in 2005 due to poor sales, though it remains as a fountain drink flavor in restaurants such a Burger King on the Coca-Cola Freestyle fountain machines and is a hit.
The company did attempt a Black Cherry Vanilla Coke in 2006, but it didn’t last more than a year. They are hoping this new variation performs much better with consumers.
Cherry Vanilla Coke will be available in both “zero sugar” or regular Coke varieties.
