The Coca-Cola Company announced today its plans to launch Coca-Cola Blak, a coffee-flavored Coke, beginning in January 2006. The new beverage is a combination of Coca-Cola Classic and coffee extracts. Coca-Cola Blak will be first launched in France in January and rolledout in the U.S. and other countries later during 2006. The formula for the new beverage is expected to vary based on local tastes, but it will be a mid-calorie drink similar to Coke C2 with half the calories and half the sugar of regular Coca-Cola.
