Orange Vanilla Coke Zero Review

Ahhh yes. I love pop. If you’re wondering what pop is, it’s what we call soft beverages here in Michigan. No one here says ‘soda’. According to Coca-Cola, “pop” is used mainly in the Midwest and Northwest, while “soda” is used in the Northeast, Southwest, and South. I have family in Maryland and I’ll never forget when my cousins visited and were shocked to learn that we don’t call soft drinks “soda” here. We were out to eat at Chili’s and my cousin Sarah decided to order a soft drink using the term “soda”. The waitress bursted out in laughter and said that was the first time she has heard anyone call it “soda”. Not gonna lie, I also joined in and started making fun of her. She was incredibly confused to learn that we call it pop here in Michigan.

No matter what you call soft drinks, we can all come together for this exciting launch! For the first time in over 10 years, Coca-Cola has added a new flavor to it’s lineup — Orange Vanilla Coke and Coke Zero Sugar! I’m a big fan of both orange pop and Coca-Cola, so this is bringing two of my favorites in one can. When you think of orange vanilla, the first thing that probably comes to mind is an orange creamsicle.

Excited about the release, I managed to hunt down the Coke Zero Sugar version at Meijer. Here are my first impressions:

  • tastes like a freaking ORANGE CREAMSICLE!
  • it’s AMAZING
  • It still has the classic Coke feel to it. The perfect balance.

First sip and I am in love. This drink instantly brings me back to my carefree childhood summer days. It’s reminiscent of the creamy orange popsicles we grew up loving, but in a classically way with one of our favorite soft drinks. There you have it. Buy this Coca-Cola. You won’t be let down. It’s refreshing, smooth, and simply delicious. I could see myself sipping on this all summer long. Go buy this POP!

I steal my nieces’ Halloween candy and laugh about it, put whipped cream on vegetables, don’t trust food that isn’t in a package, and worship ice cream. Chips are my favorite snack and might just end up being my downfall. I would marry Flamin' Hot Cheetos if it was legal (and not weird). Born and raised near Detroit, I grew up eating delicious coney dogs, unique pizzas, and of course --- all the best snacks.
