Mitch, Are you a fellow Cocoa-cola nut?

Btw I have not seen it in London.

Eeeek, I should take that back (although I still think there isn't a Coca-Cola Blonde).

It appears there are some wierd Coca-Colas out there.

They have Coca-Cola Blak, with coffee in it. They sell that in the US though... (One Al bottle here costs £1.56 and one can is £1.10!)
And theres Coca-Cola Sango which is Coke with a Blood Orange Flavour (1 Can: 90p, 12 Cans: £9.99, 24 Cans: £18.99), which is normally only available in Belgium and Luxembourg, but its imported to the UK. It would be expensive to ship though :P.
I think they also do/did Coca-Cola Rasperry, but that was a limited edition Coke from New Zealand, and is out of stock from the importers in the UK.
And then theres the Lime, Lemon, Cherry and Vanilla ones that everyone knows about...

That picture looks like beer inside a Cocoa-Cola glass.

There is a new coke out, of some sort, in a dark can, no idea what its like, haven't been desperate enough to try it yet, and being sensitive to stimulants, might be a while...


I certainly haven't seen any piss-colored coke around the NW of England.

So behold darkness as our new light
In our darkness we can see
So with others blindness

It seems to me that Southern Italy is to Northern England as Northern Italy is to Southern England.

The nearest to I have seen to this Golden Coke is an ad on the giant Vodafone LCD panel at Picadilly Circus. I have not seen the Golden Coke in stalls.
