And the world reacts with a resounding yawn...
Coke to phase out Vanilla Coke in US
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Coca-Cola Co., the world's largest soft drink maker, said on Friday it would phase out its Vanilla Coke, Vanilla Diet Coke and Diet Coke With Lemon beverages in the United States by end of this year.
Yet they still don't seem to grasp the fact that these drinks simply suck:
Coca-Cola added that it plans to introduce Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke and Black Cherry Vanilla Coke in the United States in January 2006.
"...it is important for Coke to move quickly to deliver on what the consumer wants."
Apparently, I missed the uproar of the general public demanding Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke.
Of course, the one bastardization of Coke that I did like, seems to have disappeared without much fanfare.
