Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Vanilla Lip Smackers Confirmed sighting: Coca-Cola Vanilla Lip Smackers
Posted: 11:29 Sun 06-Feb-2011. Price: 1.50. Location: Primark, Watford. Sub-flavours: Sprite, Cherry Coke, Normal Coke, Fanta Orange, Fanta Pineapple, Fanta Strawberry, Fanta Grape.
"conor martin" reports: This lip balm tastes like Coke Vanilla so much you want to eat it. I was in Primark today and saw a box full of Lip Smackers including Fanta variants that we do not get in this country - they may be imported from the States, I do not know. But they are handy to have and quite tasty - worth a buy for the taste and the novelty.

...First-time spotter "conor" continued by confirming previous glimpses of 500ml Coke Zero cans (1 in WH Smiths, Watford Harlequin Shopping Centre) - ie, "A new promotional can from the great taste range. It has 50% more coke than a 330 ml can so basically the same as a normal bottle. I didn't see if there were any more cans like this (Coke, Diet Coke) but it would be good if they did, keep me posted if you see them! PS soz about the [photo] quality, had to take it from bedroom floor."

In other semi-medicinal moisturising: I've yet to see any high-street chemists prescribing natural lemon-lime and honey flavour ManFlu Soothing Hot Or Shot Drink (perhaps it's all being stockpiled by the NHS) though, back with lip-balms, a lot of Spars seem to sell Shrek Forever Apple ChapStick - a somewhat unexpected endorsement compared to say Katy Perry, whose preferred flavour is of course Terry Pratchett.

Comment: The Cherry Coke one tastes the exact same, delicious! Wish I bought once of each now.

Comment: 500ml is too much for a can. At least with bottles you can reseal them, but cans have to be drunk in one go. Who wants half a litre of fizzy pop in one hit?
