    I've tried four different places in four different areas of NYC......no vanilla coke here either. I understand this "select areas" deal, but they announced it here.[​IMG]

    I found it at a Publix grocery store. They had a barrel of 20 oz bottles on ice up front at the cashiers. But none on the shelves yet.

    Found them in the cold drink section at Eckerd Drugs in Delaware a few hours ago.

    More of a cream soda taste, than the vanilla cokes I remember from an old fountain shop that is long gone.

    Look for it at places like 7 -11, etc. for the 20 oz bottle (the only way its available at this time). It's being rolled out market by market mostly to convenience stores and vending machines I understand.

    Vanilla Coke? What is it? Do they mix vanilla flavoring right in with the powder? Seems to me like the liquid flavoring would make the powder kinda clumpy.

    Yeah, if you're gonna go with the Vanilla Coke, you're pretty much resigned to speedballing it.

    Like every drink fad that has come along in the past 10 years, I've been drinking vanilla coke like water. It's pretty good actually. Anyone remember O.K.? Now that was hoard shit.

    I've also seen it at the local Kroger; like Wayne's Publix location, they were in unrefrigerated stacks at the front of the store. 20 oz bottles only, 2/$1.00.

    I am underwhelmed.

    I was one of the taste testers for Vanilla Coke and it just tasted like Coke. I couldn't really taste the vanilla.

    Our school put Vanilla Coke in our vending machines now, and my friend tried it today and he couldn't taste the vanilla at all either.

    That's strange. The vanilla taste was very prominent in the bottle I tried. My first reaction was that it had a stronger vanilla taste than Cherry Coke has a cherry taste.

    You have to shake it up first.

    What ever happened to crystal pepsi?

    Anyways I remember citrus Jolt being good though it had dangerous levels of caffeine, hehe

    I havn't heard of vanilla coke, perhaps I could make my own by adding vanilla extract to club soda and corn syrup. hehe
