Advantages: Amazing flavour
Disadvantages: So much sugar and only available via import from the USA
A few years back we all had the opportunity to purchase, try and thus become addicted to the wondrous flavour that is vanilla coke. I normally despise anything vanilla smelling or tasting but I thought I'd give it a shot as my first ever bottle of this was on special offer for half price back in the day so I wasn't bothered if I wasted about 50p on a drink I didn't like.
Turns out that was the best 50p I ever spent, so much so that I was happy enough to pay full price. But then coca cola had to go and break my heart by removing the marvellous stuff from UK stores and making it only available overseas in the US. However for christmas my partner bought me a crate of 12 cans which made my day as it had been years since I had tasted it!
Funny thing is, the added ingredient isn't actually vanilla, if you read the side of the can it tells you that they have added caramel to it (so I guess that's why I don't mind the vanilla effect?) but it does smell like vanilla but not as potent.
In my eyes nothing compares to this drink as it tastes so good, of course it's not doing my teeth or my waist any favours but it's totally worth every penny and every moment. So if you want to try this drink or even miss it and didn't realize it was available to import, you can find it online at trusted american sweet/candy stores where you can also get other brands and types of food and drink that are either discontinued or not available at all in the UK such as Nerdz, laffy taffy, and wonka bars! Go on, treat yourself! It's worth it.
Summary: Despite not being directly available in the UK - one of the tastiest fizzy drinks available!
