Coke with coffee sugar free

Sat Oct 07, 2017 11:25 am

Hey guys,
Here in Australia, Coca-Cola have released 'Coke with coffee sugar free', with brown highlights on the usual red labelling.
Coke No Sugar is my favourite soft drink and coffee is my overall favourite drink so I was very impressed to discover this new release, but a bit apprehensive to taste it... I actually love it and can't believe how well the two 'drinks' combine.
What do other people think?
Has 'Coke with coffee no sugar' been released in other countries? If so, which ones.... I'm curious.
Cheers (literally, lol)

Not seen it in the UK.

Pepsi have released Pepsi with Ginger. Sounds awful but isn't bad. Probably won't the buy it again though.

The problem is that even if it was out in my country, there is no saying if the composition (and thus the taste) would be the same.

This is the first time I hear about "Coke No Sugar" for starters.

Here we have Coca-Cola Light, this have been out for decades, and is the equivalent to "Diet Coke".

Then some years ago came Coca-Cola zero. It is very popular here in France, but some people prefer the Light, which is still sold. Then recently there was a change to Coca-Cola zero sucres (zero sugar), well I'm looking at a can now and "zero" is also mentioned, so I'm not sure if there was really a change made. I have been drinking a can of zero here and there for several years and didn't notice a change. Light, I never liked that one.

Coca with sugar is still better though.

With more coffee (or is it just the taste ?) I would like to try it.

That's an old casino dealers trick for dealing with a late night, 1/2 cup coke, 1/2 cup coffee, mix the two, drink it quickly, hold on tight, it's going to be a fun ride, the crash a couple of hours later is nasty though.

Hey guys,
Coke with ginger was sold here in Australia for about six months last summer. It had a gold highlight on the label. We have also had Coke with lemon and Vanilla Coke.
As for Coke Zero, it has been replaced here with Coke No Sugar.
Coke Life, with a pure green label, was a huge flop last year. Coke tried to relaunch it as Coke with Stevia but I hardly ever see it and it tastes disgusting.
Sales of all forms of Coke are reportedly falling in Australia.
Cheers,
Bunumuring.

Coke Life is also available here, not only is the taste wrong but it still has tons of sugar, just a bit less than the red Coke, so it's clearly not worth it.

Never tried it & not officially available here in Malaysia, but I've seen it on sale, imported from Denmark if I recall correctly.

Maybe I'll pop by the shops tomorrow at lunch & give it a try.

Problem is that the Australian version might taste totally different than what ends up in Germany (if it ever does).

I tried coca cola no sugar w/ coffee the other day at work. I wasn't a fan. I couldn't taste the coke at all. To me it tasted like a cheap coffee that had been left out a couple of hours (Yes I am a coffee snob).

I like no sugar it's my go to variant even though the name is a bit clunky. When it first came out the lady at my local bakery kept on thinking I was trying to order coconut sugar. Ginger was OK but wouldn't buy it over the other variants. Lemon a few years ago was good. With coca cola life and stevia in addition to not being popular it also had an extremely limited shelf life most of the stock at work had to be thrown out.

Hey vhqpa,
I'm a coffee addict too but really not a coffee snob.... But I fully understand what you mean in your post. I agree that the coffee flavour overwhelms the Coke flavour but I still liked the combination of the two and I would never have thought of it myself.
On another topic...
Here is Australia, Pepsi can be bought in a 'Pepsi Max with Lime' flavour.... Correct me if I am wrong but I don't think that Coke ever came out with a 'lime' flavour locally....

A few weekends ago I went on a roadtrip from Sydney to Canberra with my flatmate. I bought one of these at a servo and regretted it. Tasted like a flat, watered down Coke with a bad coffee flavouring to it. Still annoyed that they killed off Coke Zero for the Coke No Sugar and am thankful that my nearby Woolie still stocks it.

I pray this never makes it to The States. Pumpkin spice everything or boba is bad enough. We really don't need coffee flavored Coke. I get strange looks when I order a shot in the dark. I can't even with this.

If you have 5 guys they have about a dozen different flavours of Coke in the freestyle dispensers, including coke with lime. Not sure if 5 guys has made it to Australia but if they have you're lucky its the best burger joint by a country mile!

No 5 guys here, but I am not sure if it can beat BL Burger in Sydney. They do a great burger, Even when I was living in the US, I was more of a Smashburger and a Meatheads (I think that is a Chicago area chain) fan.
