Coke is it, but only for a while
If you're a big fan of Vanilla Coke or Vanilla Diet Coke, you'd best stock up now: They're yanking those flavors, to replace them with the more complicated Black Cherry Vanilla Coke and Diet Coke. (Dr Pepper already has a Cherry Vanilla flavor, which tastes an awful lot like regular Dr Pepper to me.)
I love vanilla, but somehow never took to Vanilla Diet Coke, which tasted really artificial to me. So I don't mind that they're trying this, as long as they never mess with that precious nectar of the gods which is Diet Coke with Lime. (I'm still beating the drum for a caffeine-free version, but semi-grudgingly drink the caffeinated, because it's just so damn good.)
Diet Coke with Lemon, or, as I call it, Diet Coke with Lemon PLEDGE, is reportedly also going away. Good riddance!
