Coca-Cola Orange

By Michelle Lynn Dinh

Why should Pepsi Japan and their wacky flavors like Pink Strawberry Milk and Salty Watermelon have all the fun? Coca-Cola Japan decided to shake things up in the flavor department and released Coca-Cola Orange. Sure, it’s not as exciting as the crazy concoctions thought up by Coke’s competitors, but Japanese consumers sure seem to love it.

Coca-Cola Orange isn’t a new flavor for the company (it was sold in the UK back in 2007), but this is the first time Japan’s gotten a taste of it.

One Twitter user even wrote a poem of sorts about his experience with the new flavor of Coke:

Coca Cola Orange Naturally, it contains no fruit juice. The well-balanced flavor of Coke is mixed with orange. There are no other special characteristics. Why they decided to put this emoji on the cap is a boundless mystery.

Other Twitter users are claiming, “This stuff is good!” and adding comments such as “I bought four!” Others describe the taste of Coca Cola Orange as another familiar soft drink: “First it tastes like Orange Fanta, then you get the flavor of Coke,” leaving some to wonder why not buy a bottle of Fanta and a bottle of Coca Cola and mix your own. Either way, if you’re in Japan, pick up a bottle and try it out for yourself.

Marketing efforts aside, carbonated soft drinks are not consumed much by adults in Japan, who prefer canned coffee beverages and unsweetened tea drinks.

Wouldn't work well in Brazil. There's a kind of a joke/expression where they say "hmmm... this Coke is Fanta..." refering to someone who seems gay. :P

Clever. Oxymoron aside, I'd like to see glass bottled Coke available in supermarkets! You cannot compare PET bottled / canned varieties to it!

I just tried some a few seconds ago. Mazui! I mean, not bad, ha ha! It actually taste a bit like orange, though there is no orange in it whatsoever.

What happens with Fanta?

Um, what? This is new? That's weird, because a few years ago, we had Coke Orange in the vending machines at my Secondary School. It was pretty good actually. But yeah, I fail to see how something that's at least 8 years old can be considered new. Actually, I think this was about ten years ago now. During the last two years of Secondary School, they decided to remove all drinks like Coke, Pepsi, Fanta etc and stock only water or fruit juice in the vending machines. Regardless, whether it was eight years or ten years is irrelevant. The point is, Coke Orange isn't new.

It is to Japan.

Sounds awful, but it's probably better than the Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew being taste-tested in the U.S.

Cream Soda. Extra spicy ginger beer or ale. Coke can be ok for a hungover morning but this orange not that good.

I don't understand how someone can drink the brand. Very unhealthy and must i say GMO! Sadly just because it is sweet with fiz does not assume it is safe. Perhaps if the company took better care and respected fans wishes to label their product then i can be at ease knowing it is safe to consume.

More parting of fools and their money
