The glass bottle lends a hint of classiness to the proceedings that's almost negated by the plastic twist top and outer wrapper.

Overall I think it would improve immensely if they didn't use aspertame to keep the calories down to around a cup of coffee. It starts off with a familiar taste, almost like carbonated sweetened Frappucino, then it settles into normal Frappucino-land and finally settles into normal (cheap) coffee bitterness with that lasting hint of formaldehyde that Diet Coke always seems to leave me with.

All in all, not worth the $1.69 they were charging for it at Schnucks.

Tried it this morning. I kind of liked the taste, but I'm not sure what market they're going for. There's not enough "energy" for it to be an energy drink. There's too much sugar for it to be a diet drink. Maybe it's just for people that wish their Coke tasted more like coffee. (Or vice versa.)

I could see buying it occasionally for the introductory price of $1.99 (for a 4-pack) that Vons is selling it for, but not the regular price of $5.99.

Agreed. I like it. However, I'm not paying that much for an 8oz bottle.

What idiot spilled his coffee in his Coke?

Then again, some other idiot dropped his chocolate bar in his peanut butter years ago, and look what happened there.

What could they possibly come up with next. Where's my Tomacco!

They still don't carry it here, and being as I don't live in a major urban area, it seems like they aren't going to. Anyone know if it can be ordered over the internet or any such thing like that?

Actually it just came out today, so you might want to check around in a couple of days to see if it's out yet, then look for it on the internet.

I assume they're rolling it out across the country in installments. We had it at Safeway here ... I want to say 2 weeks ago. (And was astonished that there wasn't a thread here!)

I find it to be like drinking a coke with a coffee candy in your mouth. The flavours seem to stay very separate for me. Maybe after years of drinking Coke with all kinds of foods, my brain has just learned to subtract the Coke flavour from the overall taste of the other food. Blak is actually OK -- I like it better than any of the other spin-offs they've tried, at least as a stand-alone beverage. It does not seem to go with other food though. I had one along with a sammich for lunch the other day -- not good at all.

Let's not forget the genius who thought clam and tomato juice would be a tasty concoction.

So, I managed to find it, and I have to agree that the flavors do seem to stay apart from each other, as if it can't decide which it wants to taste like, and keeps switching from one to the other.

Not the worst stuff I've had, but not sure it's worth $2 a bottle. This is one of those things I'd have to have a few times to train myself to get used to, like I did back with Vanilla Coke.

Ok, this makes no sense.

If you don't like it the first time you try it, why 'train' yourself to like it? Why not just not drink it?

(I know, I'M certainly not the person to ask this, but it stills seems like a good question?)

Because it's not a horrible atrocity of a flavor, just something unusual, while not altogether unpleasant, I'm just not used to yet.

It's not really something I don't like, but it's not something I fell instantly in love with either.

Shades of Grey, and all that.

Permission to think I'm the dumbest guy on the planet : Granted.

Looks like folks in the southeast have to keep an eye on this monster: Did anybody on here live through Hugo or Andrew and remember what that was like? This storm is as big as Andrew was at the same point in time.
