My name is Rob and I am a Coke addict. Coca Cola. I love that stuff. Oh, I can go without it but I don't want to. It's my favourite drink. It's one of my favourite things in life. There's just nothing like that smooth, cola taste and the burn of the bubbles along the back of my throat as that soda goes down the hatch.
The folks at Coke have me wrapped around their finger. They've kept me attracted to my drink forever. Remember in 1985 when they introduced the "new Coke"? It was a new, slightly different recipe. I didn't like it. I missed my Coke - the original. So, as you may recall, within 3 months, they brought it back. Coca Cola Classic they called it. We couldn't get enough. Sales went through the roof.
I remember this today as I read about the new Diet Coke. They've introduced new, flavoured Diet Coke. You can get new "Ginger Lime," "Twisted Mango," "Feisty Cherry," and "Zesty Blood Orange." Oh, and the new cans are colourful and attractive.
I'll predict Coca Cola collectors will scoop it up quickly because it won't be on the shelves for long. Think about it. Have you ever heard of anyone wishing they could have a blood orange flavoured diet cola? No.
