The first I heard of Coca-Cola Orange Vanilla I was skeptical. The cola/orange pairing didn’t seem like it would work. I thought it would be too messy for the vanilla to navigate around. Now that I have it in front of me I’m kind of excited. Coca-Cola is a huge company, and they don’t release new flavors like this often. I’m sure the market research and taste tests for this new flavor point to it being a success. Why would they make it otherwise?
I enjoy apple soda, so when a co-worker brought me a can of Apple Sidra I knew I was likely in for a treat. The design of the can is beautifully simple. As you can see it’s a picture of an apple on a bright yellow background with the words “Apple Sidra” bisecting the fruit itself.
Apple Sidra is a soda that originates in Taiwan, making this a doubly special treat for me. I wish I had more access to the Asian sodas of the world as they bring so much unfamiliarity to my “buds”.
