Love Coca-Cola? Adore coffee? Ever wondered what the two would be like combined together? No, us neither.
But clearly someone has because the fizzy pop giant has just introduced the snappily-titled Coca-Cola Plus Coffee No Sugar.
It’s a mash-up of the seminal soft drink with the added hint of Brazilian java. And at 14mg of caffeine per 100ml, it has more kick than normal Coke (which has 9mg) but way less wake-up ingredients that you ‘d get in, say, an average cappuccino (43mg).
Nevertheless, for caffeine addicts it’s certainly cause to get excited – although those who’ve tried it don’t quite know how they feel.
Some were feeling kind of ashamed that they liked it.
Coca-Cola plus coffee review …it's actually ok and i drank all of it. This makes me sad because i thought i had some standards. As a result i can't recommend this product because if you dont like it you wasted your money, and if you do you hate yourself for it. #bringbackpepsisamba #cocacola #cocacolapluscoffee
Others didn’t mind it.
Then there was total taste confusion.
Anyway, you’d need to be jonesing for a hit in order to get hold of the stuff because you can only get it in Japan with Australia getting it for a limited period soon.
Perhaps most significantly, however, is the fact that it’s sugar free, following the lead of other soft drink manufacturers in dropping the saccharine in light of concerns over public health and the growing obesity scare.
So, while a couple of can might have you jacked up to the nines and jabbering wild-eyed and ten to the dozen, at least your teeth will look immaculate.
