Coca-Cola Vanilla Round Two

Oh yeah, Coca Cola Vanilla (neé Vanilla Coke) is back, after being discontinued back in 2005 due to poor sales. The sometimes icky aftertaste is still there though. I bought some light Vanilla Bean Haggen-Daaz to enjoy with mine.

The new design is a vast improvement as well, compared to the old EXTREEM design:

I checked out the graphic novel rendition of Babysitters Club Book 3: The Truth About Stacey today. Oh, how the time changes!

I WAS DRINKING A TAB WHILE READING THE BOOK THIS AFTERNOON.
I’m OLD.

Annual Spring Soda Stock up!

ALL the new sodas were up at Wal Mart today. Pepsi Summer mix (tropical flavored pepsi, Diet Coke Plus (vitamins), and the Jones Cane Sodas (has cane sugar instead of HCFS).

Past spring soda hauls:

…I didn’t really group them together in 2006.

(the Plus is apparently vitamins)

Diet Coke Plus

I finally got to try Diet Coke Plus today when I went to Food Lion to pick up a single roll of T.P. (why bother paying an arm and a leg for a pack at Food Lion when mom and I are going to Wal Mart tomorrow?). It was kinda flat, but it was a lot better than I thought it was going to be.

Remember two years ago when I started taking photos of every beverage I tried, and Diet Coke With Splenda was the first drink I reviewed?

I thought of that today as I was trying this beverage (since after all Diet Coke put a blue cap on this drink as well), but this time, Diet Coke Plus blew Diet Coke With Splenda out of the water.

I took this picture with the self timer on my Polaroid Spectra Onyx.

expect a lot of updates soon. I’ve been behind.

Fanta 8 oz Can 8 Pack (Wal Mart Exclusive?)

Didn’t know they were going to put Fanta in this packaging. I’ve only heard stories about the 8 oz fanta cans, but never seen them personally.

Diet Coke 8 Pack 8 oz Cans (Wal Mart exclusive?)

I think this is just a Wal Mart only thing. I like how this package has a piddily little handle on it.

Vault Red Blitz

I finally tried the Vault Red Blitz today, its sorta like red gummy bears or that Amp Overdrive. It’s tarter than Mountain Dew Code Red.

It is a pretty shade of red though, and I was surprised to see the My Coke Rewards bottlecap.

Coca Cola Cherry's New Look # 4,587

Cherry Coke got its second facelift in two years recently. I’ve heard a lot of people criticize that the design before that one looked too much like Coke Classic.

Coca Cola 8 Pack Fridgepack

I got this at a eatery/C store called Uncle Bills in Courtland. I didn’t realize though when I got home that I spent … $3.49 on it. Whoops, I got too excited that I found a packing format I’d never seen before — well, Coca Coca C2 did this packaging when it first came out almost three years ago. Wow, C2’s rollout seems like 20 years ago.

Respect

A little kool aid ish for my standards of "good for you flavored water". The taste reminds me of that old Pepsi Fruit Works cranberry apple. Wimpy is laughing at it because it knows it will never compete with Vitamin water.

A friend that works in the biz says that this is, "Coke Consolidated/BYB’s answer to Vitaminwater. "
