Coca Cola embraces Cultural differences

I may disagree with other cultures about issues but I have always been very open minded when it comes to enjoying another culture’s food. Food is one thing that brings us all together. It is something we all can enjoy and appreciate about each other.

Coca Cola is very receptive to the cultures of the many countries in which its products are sold. So receptive in fact that they have created special flavours for other countries. Our son was registering on a Coca Cola website when he came across their special flavours. Prepare for a taste sensation.

GREEN TEA COKE PLUS

Coca Cola Green Tea Pakistan

Apparently, the vitamins added to the regular Diet Coke Plus weren’t enough for the Japanese. Green Tea Coke Plus was launched in 2009 and had added green tea and basil flavors to it. This version of coke had zero calories and was targeted to women in their 20s and 30s who wanted a soda that not only tasted good but was good for health and beauty too.

COCA-COLA LIME

Diet Coke Lime

The original Coca-Cola was infused the lime flavor back in 2005 in USA but was discontinued a year later. While the lime version is available in USA at the Freestyle machines only, it is widely available in countries including Netherlands and Singapore. The taste is said to be weirdly bitter but it is still a popular choice.

 

Coca-Cola-Lemon-pakistan

This was quite a hit flavor with the audience and why not, seems like the perfect match! We, Pakistanis, make our own version of this flavor by adding lemon juice in our plain old coke but won’t it be amazing to try the product itself? The flavor is available in Austria, China, New Zealand, France, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland and a few other countries.

diet-coke-with-bacon

Diet coke with bacon flavor… Cause what says diet more than Bacon… The thing with this type of weird coke flavor is pretty uncertain. It was never released to the public, but it is said that Coca Cola might have tested the salty/sweet dream drink in certain markets and released posters and ads with this. One thing’s for sure, if this thing ever hit the marked, out diets would be doomed.

Blak Coke

Blak Coke 1

No, we did not misspell the work “black”, and yes, Coca Cola is normally black, but Back Coke is an odd combination between the yummy taste of a coke, and coffee. I can already feel my taste buds tingling, but alas, it is only available in Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Slovakia and Spain.

My buddy Matt Waite sent this over to me and I got excited. Even though I very rarely drink soda, this supposed Romanian Coke Garlic seemed like a flavor I could get behind. Turns out it’s fake, but now I’m debating whether I should attempt infusing a bottle of Coke with some garlic on my own just to see what it would taste like…

    Don’t forget vanilla coke and cherry coke.

      Cherry Coke is very popular in Canada, as are most faux cherry things, but for some reason you can’t buy it in Canada. You’d think Coke would have spotted the market by now.

      I remember the Cherry Coke vending machine at Auckland Uni was always the last one to be emptied. Everyone always drank anything from all the other machines, before they’d drink Cherry Coke.

        Isn’t Cherry Coke, Coca Cola’s version of Dr Pepper?

        • Crowgirl

          If it is they couldn’t have got that more wrong. Dr Pepper tastes like the almond icing layer on Christmas fruit cake to my mind. Cherry Coke tastes like vile fake cherry flavouring – North Americans love that stuff (I think it’s foul).

    I def would try the coke/coffee combo….imagine the work i could get done powered by that

  • Nige.

    if youre not evolving your stuffed.

    Let’s be absolutely clear here. This has nothing at all to do with embracing cultural differences and everything to do with the fact that a company like come will put whatever it thinks will sell into a bottle.

    If African Lima wee had a market in chile it would be on a bottle called Monkey Zing with a corresponding television campaign consisting of a group of ‘everyday’ unrealistically beautiful people sharing each other’s bottles of the aforementioned liquid.
