The history is proof of how classic coca-cola has been all of our’s favourite drinks. However, the Coca-Cola Company has been trying to get a new flavor from developing new beverage versions. Here we present some of the strangest and most successful flavors that have been available around the world over the years.
Coca-Cola with Lemon
In 2001, Coca-Cola Lemon was introduced in the US to compete with Pepsi, but it discontinued the twist in 2005. When Diet Coke Lemon hit the market, replaced it with other exotic flavours, including a twist of mango, ginger, and lime and a recent relaunch in North America.
One of the oldest flavours of cola, Coca-Cola Cherry, was launched in 1985 in the United States and was available at its peak in 36 countries, including the United Kingdom, Ireland, China and Switzerland. It had a strong following until 2018, when British fans were upset by rumours that it would discontinue. Coca-Cola introduced Cherry-flavored energy drinks in 2020.
In April 1985, the Coca-Cola Company announced a new formula for its classic drink, New Coke. The drink was so unpopular that the company announced the return of the original recipe a few months later. New Coke resurfaced in 2019 to collaborate with Netflix’s Stranger Things, which describes as “sweet and bubbly.”.
Coca-Cola vanilla is still a popular flavor and was launched in the USA in 2002 and in the UK in 2003. However, it was discontinued shortly after its launch and disappeared from the shelves in late 2005, making way for Black Cherry and Vanilla Coke. Much to the delight of the timid audience, it returned for its anniversary in 2013.
Introduced in 2005, Coke Zero was one of the most successful flavors of Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola Light Sango
The blood orange-flavoured drink, initially available as Coke-Cola Light Sango in France, was the first product developed in the company headquarters in Atlanta. She got her catchy name from the French word for blood, sang.
His foray into coffee drinks, Coca-Cola Blak, was launched in 2006 in France, the USA, and Canada. Blak was intended for a savvy and cultured audience but never took off with them or anyone else.
The fruity taste was introduced to New Zealand in 2006 and revived ten years later. A few years ago, the energy-saving drink pulled the plug. It crossed the ocean in unexpected development towards a sugar-free version that hits UK shelves in 2019, much to the delight of the die-hard Coca-Cola
. Coca-Cola Citra, with its red-green packaging, was first sold in Japan in 2006. It is similar ( not to be confused with Citra), a grapefruit-flavoured drink that arrived in yellow and was sold as Coca-Cola in the United States in the 1990s.
Diet Coke Citrus Zest
Diet Coke with Citrus Zest was introduced in 2007 and was a combination of lemon and lime flavors sold in the UK. One day in 2018, the drink disappeared without warning, much to the dismay of loyal fans.
Diet Coke Plus
The healthy energy drink Diet Coke was introduced in October 2007 in the UK in two versions: one is containing B3, B12, and vitamin C additives, and the other containing green tea and vitamin C. The drink landed in the US and Belgium later that year and attracted the attention of the FDA, which claimed that there were too few nutrients to justify the term ‘coke’ in its name.
The opaque orange bottles have been on shelves worldwide for years and are available in Japan, Turkey, and Brazil, among others. They are often compared to mezzo, a blend of cola and orange sold in Europe. Japan also has a health-conscious version of Coca-Cola, Coca-Cola Catechin.
Coca-Cola Plus Catechin
Targeted at a younger generation, it was established in 2009 and, as its name suggests, contained catechin, an antioxidant found in green tea. Although withdrew it from the UK in June 2017, it is still available in over 30 countries worldwide.
