Confirmed sighting: Vanilla Coke
Posted: 15:35 Thu 27-02-2003. Price: 50p. Location: New York/ a newsagent, London's Edgware Road. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
Originally spotted by Jenny Colgan while on holiday in the US: "It tastes as if you were drinking some normal coke on Hallowe'en, and some kid who'd eaten too many sweeties walked past and, without warning, threw up in your mouth." Undaunted, Barry McCauley said they'd been selling it in a newsagents near his work (Colindale, NW9) for quite a few weeks now. "Unforunately," he continued, "it was only after opening the can and taking a swig that I remembered the 'kid throwing up in your mouth' bit. Huurrrrrrkk!!" What's more: "The can seems to be French ('Cola saveur de vanille')", he muses. "Could this be a grey-import?" Sources confirm that "grey imports" of what appears to be the Canadian version have started arriving here in advance of the official UK launch at the end of March. And, to be honest, it doesn't taste that bad - kind of like drinking Coke flavoured with white chocolate Milky Bars - and overall a somewhat "smoother" alternative to the "delightful, battery-acid kick" which this Seattle-based reviewer seems to prefer.

Comment: I did not realize that Vanilla Coke was such a local phenomenon. Here in Santa Clara Valley, California we've had the stuff for several months now. It's invaded every facet of our lives, with our otherwise benign soda machines now offering Vanilla Coke in large quantities,aided with large stickers exclaiming: "TRY VANILLA COKE" and a big arrow pointed right to the button. As for the taste, well, it's vanilla in coke. It's almost a bit too much vanilla, but that's because these flavors don't really mix at all. You can taste the coke, and you can taste the vanilla. It's an odd sensation, and I use it to spice up an otherwise boring day, even though I know many people who won't touch the stuff. However, compared to other recent soda "innovations" (like that blue Pepsi crap, or Pibb XTRA [which has completely surplanted our supplies of Pibb normal]), Vanilla Coke stands head and feet above them.

Comment: Calamity Comics in Harrow have been selling the grey import cans for a while - well, until my mate James and I cleaned them out of the lovely stuff. Roll on the official launch!

Comment: Just found some in my local newsagents in Bath, and it's lovely. Tastes, not illogically, a lot like an ice-cream Coke float. Certainly, compared to the crime against humanity that was Lemon Diet Coke, it's a triumph of Science.

Comment: Speaking of which, has anyone tried the new Pizza Hut Pepsi Float (previously quite a hit in Poland: http://www.pizzahut.com.pl/menu_desery.asp - "szklanka Pepsi z kulka lodowa Hut o smaku wanilii"). Wow, just looking at the picture on the menu really hurts my fillings!

Comment: I don't have one of those fancy "trackback" blogging things on here yet, but here's my favourite link to the site so far: http://intonation.blogspot.com/2003_03_01_intonation_archive.html#91554753 . And I quote: "We are shocked to learn that Mr. Pibb walks upon England's mountains green, especially in light of the fact that it's seemingly unavailable [in] New York. (Not that we've put a lot of effort into looking for it, mind you.) We apologize to our British cousins for any gustatory discomfort induced by Dr. Pepper's pallid doppelganger."

Comment: Edinburgh, Scotland, UK now has Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke. It's excellent, just like a coke float but without the mess!! I thought Lemon DC was the best thing ever but now Vanilla DC is surely the nectar of the gods!!

Comment: According to Independent Retail News: http://www.irn-talkingshop.co.uk/irn/news.html , Spar are launching their own 500ml own-brand Vanilla Cola which retails at 49p. Let the taste-comparisons begin!

Also, to clarify some previous comments: Mr Pibb has, as far as I know, never been widely available in the UK, except from "specialist" suppliers like http://www.cybercandy.co.uk (currently offering both "Dr Pepper Red Fusion" and the caffeinated 7up remix "7up dnL").

Comment: You can get Vannila coke at the little stall at East Putney Tube station. You can really feel your teeth starting to decay after you drink this.

Comment: Further to my last post, my local newsagent in Hanwell, W7 has cans of the official Vanilla Coke, i.e. not the Canadian grey import. The can design is different from the Canadian/US version, and although I haven't done a proper taste test yet, isn't actually as nice as the grey import...

Comment: being a diet coke purist, i believe firmly that lemon and vanilla flavours [both now available in the mighty sheffield] should be kept for rare moods, bank holidays and family occasions. they are not up to replacing my usual four bottles a day of the standard diet coke. now diet cherry coke on the other hand is a wonder. come on coca-cola, we're practically the 51st state now: give us a really great flavour...
Posted: 08:28 Tue 01-04-2003 by "Peter"
Comment: I can only hope that Europe is subjected to a nicer version of Vanilla Coke than what is available in Canada. A friend and I each suffered through a can when it made its local debut; we both managed to finish, but I can only liken the experience to drinking carbonated cake icing, with just enough of the old familiar Coke battery-acid kick to make the whole affair vaguely illness-inducing.

A real shame; I had high hopes when I first heard of the idea.

Comment: The Spar shop in Glasnevin, Dublin, Ireland, just around the corner from the ComputerScope/PCLive! offices often stocks imported American soft drinks including Vanilla Coke. The imported stuff is much more expensive than the locally produced product. I tried VC last year and I wasn't impressed. The smell when you opened the can was pleasant enough to begin with but really turned out to be sickening.
Posted: 19:02 Tue 01-04-2003 by "Jack The Ripper"
Comment: Hopefully they will tone down the vanilla like they did with "Diet Coke with Lemon" I have have the american Vanilla Coke & Diet Coke Vanilla imported and they both have a subtle taste of Vanilla rather than tasting like cream soda!

Comment: Vanilla coke has now arrived at Sussex Uni (75p for a bottle). Essentially its a coke float without the bother of nasty melting ice cream in it. Personally I'm hooked. Still to spot it at Sainsbury though ...

Comment: In Huntsville, Alabama, US, its been everywhere for months now. I guess that might be becuase we are just 200 miles from the Coke HQ in Atlanta. To me it tastes like a mixture of cream soda and Coke. After the "new" wore off, I decided I did not really care for it. I have a friend who works for the local Coke bottler and he said that has been the general reaction of people he has talked to.

It generally is not available in vending machines or restaraunts now--just mostly in stores. I think this is because there is not enought demand for it.

Comment: Woolies (soon to disappear) in Cambridge UK have lots of it, and it must be racing off the shelves, as the checkout ladies were making disparaging comments to everyone who bought one. They may also have had a book running on how many they'd sell, as each one sold was waved at the other checkouts with cries of "Vanilla!". Not bad, I thought, like a 50:50 cream soda/Coke mix in taste. Would get sickly if you drank much more than 1/2 a litre though. Much prefer the idea of lemon flavour in Coke but yet to find a ready mixed variant of this without fake-sugar-aftertaste.
Posted: 15:54 Thu 03-04-2003 by "Barry McCauley "
Comment: When you smell the drink, you can't help but feel it smells nice. Only, you realise that it "smells nice" in the same kind of way that your sisters little pencil rubbers used to smell in the 80s. And that is fundamentally where the problem lies.
Posted: 17:44 Thu 03-04-2003 by "I've never drunk Coke. Ever."
Comment: Available now at Safeway in Leicester in a POS thing which says "Reward your curiosity" or something similar. Still not enough to make me want to try it.

Comment: Apparently Virgin were due to launch their own Vanilla Cola as long ago as last December: http://www.commentwire.com/commwire_story.asp?commentwire_ID=4015 - which seems to have gone the way of Virgin's other weird beverage diversifications...

Comment: In Singapore, they're in the process of launching Vanilla Coke. Over the weekend on Orchard Road (the main drag) they were giving out free samples. Less than 100 yards away the garbage cans were overflowing with Vanilla Coke cans. This either means that the masses find the stuff insatiable and woof it down in seconds or undrinkable. Depending on the day, I flip flop between the two.

Comment: It has arrived in ASDA, Brighton!.... and to be honest, it can go back from where it came......... Initially, I thought "Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm" A few slurps on.......I was thinking "Yeuch.....sicky!" I think it proves that "Coke" is mean't to be just "Coke" not cherry/ vanilla etc etc just the original.......

Comment: Hang on. Did I say Colindale (London NW7)? I did. Of course, I meant NW9. The newsagents is called "R.S. News" and is right next to "Cleary's Clock" on the Edgware Road, if anyone is desperate for a bottle.

Comment: okay, my trip to london proved to be useful, as I spotted Vanilla Coke on sale in Leicester train station... Still had half the bottle left when I got to london. I could only manage sipping at it every once in a while and chucked half of it away.

It's grim! But my america-loving friend tells me the USA version is much smoother.

Comment: Selling in most small newsagents in North London (in my experience) but seems anathema to the supermarkets... Vanilla Coke is great stuff, but Diet Vanilla is a travesty that should have been strangled at birth.

Comment: I think that Vanilla Coke is great! I remember when I was a little boy going into a soda fountain and asking for one. They mixed up coca cola syrup and vanilla syrup and added sparkling water. This one tastes as good as the one in my youth. I like the lemon one , too.

Comment: due to Coke having enough chemical induced stomach-lining-eating properties on its own, i decided to try normal Coke with vanilla extract in it (as Vanilla Coke has vanilla flavouring, totally artificial and nothing to do with vanilla at all). it tasted like vomit. it was the most awful taste in the world, it didn't taste like vanilla. i tried it adding a little more at a time, but it simply didn't work. so i'll stick to the Vanilla Coke. i like the way it masks the normal Coke 'taste', which i've always been worried about - Sprite tells you it is "lemon and lime favoured", Dr Pepper tells you it's "fruit flavoured", and Coca-Cola is a drink with "vegetable extracts". is it supposed to taste of vegetables?? and if so- why is the taste of vegetables and vanilla so much more pleasing?
Posted: 18:28 Tue 22-04-2003 by "Greg Short"
Comment: I was excited when I saw the first commercials for Vanilla Coke. I love vanilla, so I immediately went looking for the thing. It wasn't until a week or two later that I actually found it. At first, I wasn't especially impressed; it tasted like someone spiked the coke with cream soda. But I quickly grew to enjoy it. Now, it's my Coke of choice. (But then, I'm actually a Dr. Pepper fanatic, so maybe my opinion doesn't count.) I wanted my girlfriend to enjoy it, but had to wait for the Diet version, which came weeks later. Being a hardcore Diet Coke drinker, she thought it was a nice change but is sticking to her tried-and-true first love. Yes, she loved Diet Coke before she loved me.... :)

Comment: Try the diet version. I found it much better than the sugared one, which tasted mostly WAY too sticky sweet. Not the same drink that a local restaurant in Cincinnati has offered for ages (at least from the 1950's as far as I know), but I find the diet vanilla Coke pretty drinkable.

Comment: Found the Virgin Vanilla Cola in Camden Safeway for £1.15 for 2 litres. Not that different, to be honest, though you can still taste that it's not "real" Coke underneath. Also, after drinking 2 litres, the overwhelming sweetness left me wondering: how long before they devise the ultimate tie-in - *chocolate* flavoured Coke?

But it tasted pretty o.k. a little while back when my self and children were standed on the side of the road waiting out a rain storm with nothing else to drink after munching out on salty pretzels.

Spar have launched their own brand american cola in a vanilla flavour, I have only seen it in 500ml bottles. tastes less sugary than the Coke version. The diet coke vanilla is foul.

Comment: After enjoying Vanilla Coke, we were extremely excited by the news from our source at the 7-11 that "Diet Coke with Vanilla" was about to be released onto the market. Unfortunately Emma could not be involved in the taste test as she has gone back to Adelaide.

We all agreed that it smells good, like Vanilla Coke. Amanda felt that it "tasted much better than regular Diet Coke", with a "strong vanilla flavour", and Justin noted that "eventually the vanilla taste wore off, leaving the typical metallic Diet Coke aftertaste".

After much discussion we all decided that it was basically Diet Coke with vanilla in it. We could have saved so much time if we just read the label. Good thing we didn't pay for it, as we certainly wouldn't want to spend money on such rubbish (except for Amanda who didn't mind it - but then again, she drinks Pepsi).

Comment: It's whearoubts of where it has been has been long confirmed with the basis that the Vanilla Coke has gone. It was last reported about in the opening seasons of 2006. My dear sasha..x, the Vanilla Coke has been vanished off our dear planet for a confirmed 2 years. The sheer regret of having a heart to heart explanation of the wherabouts of this confectionary is ravenous and I fell up the creak breaking it to you...

In short- They're discontinued.

Comment: Vanilla Coke is amazing. Purely amazing. It's pretty much the only kind of pop I buy now. I definitely don't think of it as "throwing up in your mouth".

It's amazing. Never shall I run out of Vanilla Coke while it's around.

Comment: Bring back Diet Coke with vanilla! Better than rubbish citrus one which needs to go back to lemon.

Comment: I bought some vanilla coke by accident once and I couldn't think what it smelt like, then after a few months when I was oiling my car I suddenly realised... it smells just like WD40 and probably tastes like it too!

Comment: And theres another thing I've just thought of... theres a new label design on ordinary curvy coke bottles and the coke in them tastes different to the older bottles with the more classical label, the change isn't good in my opinion; I hope it reverts to the normal taste soon.
