Coca-Cola Blak

Have you heard about Coke's newest venture? Coca-Cola Blak is a new product soon to be released in France, to be followed with a release here and elsewhere - "Coke mixed with coffee" is the basic idea. I think, with my primary migraine trigger being caffeine, this product could kill me. Oh, but I'm tempted. Now, sure it sounds kind of disgusting to me, but it has curiosity as its initial drawing power. If the taste is good, the whole world might just be hopped up on Blak.

And then I think, as my mind is wont to wander, carbonation + coffee beans = some serious trumpeting. 'Cause both of those things tend to give me gas.

"Living and breathing give you gas," says my wife, walking by.

God bless Laura.

Do you by chance remember Pepsi's ill-fated attempt at coffee cola? Pepsi Kona? I thought it was *phenomenal*. I hope this is half as good.

Scott said...

Alison, God bless her indeed.

Scott, I have no memory of Kona. Where was I anyway? I'm looking forward to the drink myself - just because now I'm so freakin' curious. And the bottle is cool.

Maybe this will be the only way I'll enjoy coffee. Though it's quite possible that I'll say they just ruined Coke. I'll give it a whirl though. And I is a cool bottle. Oh...and Scott...there's an update over in my neck of the woods, fyi. Perhaps I'll be the monthly blogger.

Hard to believe. I think I'll pass.

Pardon me Scott while I whisper in your wife's ear,"Just slip him some Beano in his decaffinated Coke."

I don't like coffee, so I don't know it I'd like this or not.
I'd like to try it though.
I'd be bouncing off the walls!

Scott: 0 Laura: 1

I think men are more gaseous than women. Either that, or we just expel ours more discretely.

As a fellow migraine sufferer, I'll have to give this one a miss when it finally wields it's way to England!

I concur that the design is extremely appealing though.

God Bless.
