Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Coca Cola with Orange Confirmed sighting: Coca Cola with Orange
Posted: 14:43 Tue 26-Jun-2007. Price: 0.89/ 500ml bottle. Location: Lothian, Borders and Angus Co-op, Inverurie. Nutritional unusualness: 108 kcal, 26.6g sugar, 0g fat/ saturates, trace salt per "250ml serving".
"Joshua Field" reports: Saw this today having moaned at other shops about their lack of it so had to buy it! Smells quite like a cheap brand orangeade and, in my opinion does not taste as good as I hoped it would. To me, it has very little taste and is like sparkling spring water - very gassy. However, it comes in bright orange bottle so easy to spot it on the shelves. Would not buy it again, will stick to Coca Cola original or Coke with Lemon.

...First-time spotter "Joshua" sums up the general disappointment here - I thought it had the cheap artificial-orange flavour of 1970s Fanta, a product which "Zeddy" discovered has since evolved into Fanta Maldives Shokota (Citric and Elderflower taste) (0.50 Euros, Local Spar, Menorca, also available in "Japan Sandia-watermelon", and "a red grapefruit one from somewhere else"). "Tastes of the world by Fanta. Something to do with Caravan Island? Not too bad tasting and a bit different from orange or lemon varieties," the Zedster concludes, before also locating longer-lasting Wimbledon sponsor Robinsons Smooth Juice (1/ l litre, Tesco, Lanark, in Apple and Blackcurrant, or Orange), with the words: "Spotted today in Tesco. Seems to be a premium version of the diluting variety they make. Sold at ambient then chill once opened."

Comment: I tried Orange Coke on Sunday, it was so disgusting that after at few tries at drinking it, I binned it and got a Sprite Zero. I don't remember what Orange Fanta tasted like in the 70s, but I do remember orange flavoured vitamin C tablets in the 80s and that's what Orange Coke reminded me of most.

Comment: hey, seventies fanta that sounds worth a try. I was so disappointed when they started trying to make fanta actually taste orangey ;-)
Posted: 12:37 Wed 27-Jun-2007 by "Andy B" # permalink comment
Comment: Costs 75p where I work. The label bills it as a "Carbonated Orange Flavour Soft Drink", and the tast matches. Where as the lime/lemon variant can taste the coke with a hint of flavour, this tastes more like Fanta, with a hint of Coke.

Comment: This is pretty nasty, much worse than the Lemon or Lime varieties. (And where is the non-diet version of Citrus Twist?)

Coke mixed with fresh orange is still nice as a summer pint in the pub, though.

Comment: There is no non-diet version of Diet Coke with Citrus Zest! You should perhaps look at this- http:/snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0702232044daa#form

Comment: I like the taste, I dont know why people think it will taste disgusting because its ornage, are we forgetting cola and cherries? and in my opinion Cherry Coke tastes the best

Comment: people who like diet coke with vanilla, spar still make their own version of this. (not 100% sure it's diet, may be regular).

Comment: I'm with Deadpool and S Wallen on this one. I like this new Coke. It deserves its temporary place on the supermarket shelves. Don't be haters! Don't deny Oranges the right to compete with all the other fruit like Limes, Cherries and Lemons! We owe it to the Orange- ever since the jam incident where they were relegated to marmalades. It's about time the Orange had some REAL recognition and this merger with Coke should help boost their profiles.

Besides, it's nice and it doesn't have the sickly, back of your throat aftertaste which Tango has.

Comment: I had a drink of Coca Cola with Orange and all I can say is it was awful,tastes like flat cola with a over sour Fanta.Beware take a sample of this drink before you buy it Coca Cola would not put out this drink not even Pepsi.
Posted: 20:59 Tue 03-Jul-2007 by "I.Q" # permalink comment
Comment: What a waste of money for something that tastes like weak Cola with Fanta don't buy this drink or take it if it free.Pepsi please bring the Jazz brand too the U.K or Coca cola stop making this a bring back Coca Cola vanilla.

Comment: I feel sorry for the person who bought 99p a bottle of Flat Cola with Fanta.I can't think that Coca Cola made this not even Pepsi could make something as dredful as this Cola with Orange.
Posted: 17:10 Wed 04-Jul-2007 by "Stan Smith." # permalink comment
Comment: There's no Coca Cola with Orange here just Brown Fanta what crap.I thought it would be as good as Cola with Vanillia but no I was wrong and Lime was not much but it was better than this.What a waste of time Coca Cola put in too this Soda I can't see them getting big money out of this drink.Here what too do go too American Soda and get a better drink like Mountain Dew or any other Cola or Pepis brand and forget about this garbage.

Comment: What a waste I don't believe Coca Cola made this,I feel someone had stole the Coca Cola name and painted the bottle orange and put Cola and Fanta in the bottle.they could have gave us something like Coca Cola with Strawberry and Cream or something better and more like Summer this Drink was a waste of time making.

Comment: Tried this coke and orange nice one coke - oh sh1t we have mixed coke and fanta - its going to cost xx millions of lost revenue if we bin it -PR dept I know lets flog it to Joe public as a limited edition special -

What about putting some vodka in coke - as in those awful Alco pop things

Actually putting vodka in the coke/orange abomination would be an improvement, 80P for a bottle - that was nasty lunch break

Comment: Have finally tried this. It is pretty nasty. And I tend to be impressed by anything with a Coke or Pepsi base. It does indeed taste like a slightly modified Tango. Would recommend the Sengo version (Blod orange) to which I have referred already but probably no longer available. I will not be troubling the shopkeeper for this again.

Comment: Hmm, Well i don't know, it really doesn't have much taste of Orange in it. It needs more flavor.

Comment: This drink blow's Coca Cola can do better than this not even Jones Soda make's this rip off,it's just brown Fanta no wonder it's free.Im sure Coca Cola could have made something better than this juck just stick with Coca Cola Zero and Cherry.

Comment: two for £1.29 in my local corner shop - but i wont be buying it again. it's not orangey enough to be an orange drink - and doesn't taste enough like cola to be a cola drink. Ropey.

Comment: This drink shows how much Coca Cola can make from poor people that bought this rubbish drink.And it shown me how out of touch Coca Cola has become with it buyers.But I am happy that Pepsi have made new ideas for there brands like Jazz and Wild Cherry but sadly there not on sale over here.Please don't chuck your money on Coca Cola Orange it's garbage and if you do you won't get it back but you get something that's like brown Fanta.

Comment: I had a drink of Coca Cola with orange and sadly I won't be buying it ever again.Too sum up this drink imagine Tab Cola or Virgin Cola made some like Tizer blue that's how awful this drink is.If you don't want too buy this drink have a sample first or go too a friends house and have drink of it.Maybe next year Coca Cola will come out with something better and forget about this one.

Comment: I was traveling through the UK last week, and tried the drink, and loved it. I had lived in Germany and loved drinking Mezzo Mix, this was very similiar to it. Yes, I could make it on my own with Coke and Fanta, but I would sometimes like to purchase a bottle already made up.

Comment: Coke Orange is still plentiful, but the tides turn quickly so stock up... my best bet for finding it is local newsagents, they'll always have them this month at least...

Comment: I tried this not expecting to like it, but its now my fav drink. I love iru brew, tizer and I guess its in the same grouop as those. I keep buying loads in the hope that Coke will keep making it, my local newsagent Mr Sawrid orders extra just for me!

Comment: I saw Orange coke when I was on work experience and bought a bottle. I new it would taste nice because I always remember adding Orange juice to coke when I was younger. When I tried it I loved it! It is my favourite drink now, LOVE IT! I just hope that coca cola keep making it :( Its much better than coke with vanilla in my opinion. PLEASE KEEP MAKING THIS DRINK COCA COLA

Comment: apropos of my hobby - Geography Coke...it's spotting the different countries from where the cafe owners import coke. My favourite was the Azerbaijan one. However, today had a can with entirely Arabic script on it but the best aspect was an old-fashioned kiddie-maiming ring pull - had forgotten how much the tin makes a loud pop when it's opened and what a tough job it is getting the ring pull off (naturally these modern ring pulls have not allowed my to keep my pulling muscle in trim)
