    But now, after the first time in a decade, Coca-Cola is delivering a new flavor — ORANGE VANILLA.

    There's also a zero sugar version.

    Of course, we had to try it to see what it's like!

    Christopher:

    DESCRIBE THE TASTE IN ONE WORD: Flavorful.

    RATING ON A SCALE OF 1-10: 8.

    THOUGHTS: This has shades of a creamsicle! As someone who loves those new vending machines that allow you to try specific flavors of various sodas, I really appreciate this concoction and I think it's a solid effort. I would drink it again!

    Krista:

    DESCRIBE THE TASTE IN ONE WORD: Zingy.

    RATING ON A SCALE OF 1-10: 3.

    THOUGHTS: As a person who loves Coca-Cola, vanilla, and also oranges, I have to say I was not a fan. I did not taste the vanilla bit at all, just a hint of orange. I feel like orange in Coke doesn't sound as good as lime in Coke. Maybe vanilla lime could be a better flavor. However, I honestly could not tell a difference in taste between the zero sugar one and the regular one, so kuddos to Coca-Cola on that!

    Farrah:

    DESCRIBE THE TASTE IN ONE WORD: Citrusy.

    RATING ON A SCALE OF 1-10: 4.

    THOUGHTS: I’m the person who picks all the orange flavored candies out of a candy jar and discards them, so this flavor didn’t exactly excite my taste buds. Basically, this comes down to personal preference. I didn’t really taste the vanilla as much as I tasted the orange. Bring me Cherry Coke over this any day!
