Coca-Cola Black Cherry Vanilla
and Diet Coke Black Cherry Vanilla
were varieties of Coca-Cola
that were launched in January 2006
by The Coca-Cola Company
in United States
. The diet version was sweetened with a blend of aspartame
and acesulfame potassium
and was marketed as part of the Diet Coke
family. It was available in 20-ounce, 2-liter, and 12-pack can forms.
The release of this product coincided with the phasing out of Vanilla Coke and its diet counterpart in North America and the rechristening of Cherry Coke as Coca-Cola Cherry.
Coke Zero Black Cherry Vanilla was the "Coca-Cola" version of Diet Coke Black Cherry Vanilla launched in 2006 in Canada.
Throughout the first 6 months of the product's sale, the percentage of drinks bought from Coca-Cola and its variants that was Black Cherry Vanilla Coke was 4%, compared to 9% for Coca-Cola with Lime and 3% for Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke compared to 7% for Diet Coke with Lime, 13% for the Caffeine free Colas, 13.5% for Coke Cherry and Diet Coke Cherry, and 26% for Diet Coke.
With low sales figures, and the return of Vanilla Coke (now Coca-Cola Vanilla) in the summer of 2007 in the United States, Black Cherry Vanilla Coke was discontinued.
