The Coca Cola Blak Experiment

It’s out. Coca Cola Blak. (insert little trademark symbol thingy here)

The buzz: “…fuses Coke effervescence with coffee essence”

I’ve been awaiting this product for a while. I’m a Coke girl (as opposed to Pepsi) and the fact that I’m a total coffee junkie is pretty well known. This may finally be the product to stock up on for those times I just can’t get to Dunkin Donuts, or I want something…effervescent.

Or it may be totally wicked gross.

I’ll let you know…



First sip: Hmm…kind of unusual.

Second sip: I thought it was coffee coke not cheap chocolatey coke.

Third sip: Ptew. Cloying. That might be the word. Yuck.

And…the little cutesie bottles are too cutesie to be gripped by my cupholder, so bu-bye now.

    This (Diet) Coke guy agrees with you. Having tried it, I can say Blak is actually not that bad, other than seeming a bit pricier ($4.99!) than other energy drinks on the market. At 49 calories, it’s definitely not going to break any calorie banks, unless you’re prone to otherwise unhealthy consumption trends. You Big Fat Fatty!

    Blak gives a nice refreshing lift and doesn’t have have overly strong coffee tastes, for those who don’t like java.

    If Coke would put the stuff on sale, I’d snatch a lot more of it…maybe wholesellers will have it at a better price.

    I personally hope it makes it on the market…it’s a different, welcome twist to the otherwise overly rooty, fruity, tooty energy drink scene.
