Apparently someone at …Coke thinks all of us sophisticated urban folks want to mix our Starbucks with some cola. Off the top of my head, I can’t see why.
Coffee is hot- yes, it has caffeine, but so do most cola drinks. I drink coffee largely because of this property of “hotness”. I don’t seek out coffee flavour in my chocolate, my milkshakes, or my cola drink.
Maybe I’m alone in this attitude. Maybe Coca Cola Blak will sell like the proverbial hotcake. Or maybe people will say “Wow- anyone for some grape-flavoured potato chips to go with that coffee flavoured Coke?”. I’m prone to think the latter result is more likely.
