Click pic to view comments - International sighting: Coca Cola Raspberry International sighting: Coca Cola Raspberry
Posted: 21:30 Tue 05-Jul-2005. Price: $1.25 ("not too sure as purchased from eBay"). Location: New Zealand. Sub-flavours: Diet Coca Cola Raspberry. Nutritional unusualness: 10.7g carb per 100ml, 10.6 g sugar per 100ml.
"alan witthoft" reports: I'm not too sure if this counts as a real sighting as I bought this from eBay, but it was off a kiwi and it did come from New Zealand! (I've got the post-marked packet to prove it). The first thing you notice when you open the bottle is the extremely overpowering smell of raspberry, the smell is so strong that it almost overwhelms your taste buds, it was very odd at first, but after a few glugs the idea of Raspberry Coke kind of settles on you - didn't taste all that natural, but it wasnt a horrid chemical experience either, I think if I could get my hands on it more easily I'd buy it again. I'd say 6 or 7 out of 10, not bad at all but I don't think it will rise above the "limited release" status that is on the 600ml bottle label.

...First-time spotter "alan's" eBay world tour continues with the (non-diet) Coca Cola with Lime he sourced from Australia for a similarly vague price, musing: Now most of us have probably tried Diet Coke with Lime available here in the UK, this 390ml bottle of lime coke is from Australia, and is a limited edition release, much like our Lemon Coke here. Taste-wise it's pretty much as you'd expect - like the diet lime version but without that horrid diet fake chemical flavour, not bad but I don't know if it was that good either, I'd probably buy it again, or I might just wait till they bring out the next exciting flavour of Coke! It's all getting a bit Kit Kat-ish really. Cherry Coke still rules though.

Comment: whilst i am all for this crazy 'diet coke with x' business, i am concerned by this article that says raspberry replaces lime in nz:

http://www2.coca-cola.com/ourcompany/wn20050506_raspberry.html

can't they get rid of lemon or vanilla instead? lime is ace.

of course, if they would just start selling diet cherry coke in the uk they could do whatever the heck they wanted to the other flavours and i'd still give them my firstborn.

Comment: I wanted to try this bad so I ordered it on ebay. I have to admit it wasn't anything I'd buy again if I lived in New Zealand

Comment: The 2.25 litre costs around $2.40 NZD, the 1.5 litre is around $1.60, and the 600 ml is around $1.30 in NZ supermarkets. According tohttp://www.westpac.co.nz (a bank): 2.40 New Zealand Dollar (at!) 0.3855 = .93 Pound Sterling. I'd say you're getting ripped off at cybercandy for 16 cans (at!) £31.99.

Comment: Why? They've got to ship them over for one thing, then add their profit margin. Buy it from Ebay for twice the amount per can then, with no guarentee that it'll arrive safely.

Comment: I just stumbled across this site, I have a "bring diet cherry coke to the UK" petition, that exact wording too. It would be awesome if you could sign it at http://www.ipetitions.com/campaigns/dietcherrycoke/

Comment: Spotted in Cybercandy.com's Covent Garden store (£2.30!), this is apparently on limited release in New Zealand only, hence the rather hefty price tag on the few imports they have in stock!

Comment: Yes! Diet cherry coke is coming to the UK at last! Not sure about the vanilla component with it though?

Comment: An Australian variant [via Cybercandy]. Well, it's not very raspberryish. Lovely though, a naturalistic flavour and quite distinct from cherry coke. But it seems very, very fizzy. I found myself emitting an unusually unladylike sound.

Comment: I saw this, now released in Fiji. Raspberry coke previously only available in New Zealand. 84078 2
