The article on MSN was called 10 foods we'll never get to eat again and somewhere in the middle of the article was a reference to Coca Cola BlāK.
This variation on Coke was flavored like coffee, but it didn't last long. In fact, it only had a public life of two years: 2006 to 2008.
(Blak was first introduced in France, but by Spring of 2006 it launched the United States and by Summer in Canada.)
So what was Blak about?
Blak was a coffee-flavored cola.
And it only lasted 2 years?!
Here we are in 2014 and you'd think a coffee-flavored beverage would FLY off the shelves.
(Pun not intended).
I mean, aren't there all KINDS of iced-coffee beverages in cans and bottles in YOUR grocery store?
Sleek looking bottle, popular flavor, mega-powerful manufacturer/distributor...wouldn't you think Blak should be back?
