The new New Coke: Black Cherry Vanilla Coke

The Coca-Cola Company is doing away with Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke in the U.S. and the U.K. Diet Coke with Lemon will also be phased out in the U.S.

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola gave the usual B.S. about adjusting their product lines to quickly meet consumer demands.

In its place, at least in the U.S., will be Black Cherry Vanilla Coke and Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke. The U.K., lucky them, will finally get Diet Cherry Coke.

Excuse me? I wanted Vanilla Coke! If I wanted Cherry Coke, that’s what I would have ordered! I certainly don’t want them both! And if I did want them both, I’d mix them myself from the soda fountain.

I give it a year before Coca-Cola sees the error of its ways and brings back Vanilla Coke.
