Move over Cherry Coke, the new soda in town is Orange Vanilla Coca-Cola and it’s just as delicious as it sounds. If you love the refreshing taste of an orange creamsicle, don’t miss out on this new take on the classic Coke.

Not only is the fresh flavor unlike any current Coca-Cola product, but the iconic can got a bit of a makeover, too. Instead of a solid red design, the brand opted for a bright shock of orange that definitely has us thinking about all things citrus.

@CocaCola launches Orange Vanilla flavored coke nationwide starting today! This flavor alongside the Zero version will be available in 12-oz cans and 20-oz bottles. The new flavor will also be available exclusively at Wendy’s restaurants in Coca-Cola Freestyle fountain dispensers through the end of the NCAA March Madness basketball tournament before rolling out nationally across all Freestyle units • 🍊 Orange is a flavor we love in beverages. Add vanilla to it however, and we’re not particularly keen. This soda has a creamsicle vibe to it which is fantastic if you’re into that because this flavor is pulled off well, but we find it to be just okay. We finished the beverage but wouldn’t buy it again. We’ll stick to Cherry Coke. Had it been straight up Orange, we’d be all over this! Fortunately for us, we bought the single cans at Two Bros Pizza on 8th Ave near Times Square. The bottle is from Walgreens. • 🍋⁉️ According to a Coca Cola Press Release, “the team considered three other flavors – raspberry, lemon and ginger. But the combination of orange and vanilla emerged as the clear favorite in focus groups.” Why? Because the Orange Vanilla flavor reminded people of summer days eating orange creamsicles. Additionally, Coke Orange No Sugar launched in Australia, and Coke Orange Vanilla launched in Canada. I personally think Coke messed up. For starters, the icon is just an orange slice. That’s misleading, people will definitely think it’s just Orange Coke at first glance, and then they’ll be disappointed. In fact, the cashier thought it was just orange coke, and she was excited. Then I had to shoot her down. Additionally, Lemon alone is a safer, more palatable soda flavor in our opinion. Who doesn’t like some lemon in their soda? If not lemon, then just Orange by itself. Anyone agree? Want a new flavor entirely? Orange, Grape, Lemon and Lime for us. #mnmtwinzDrinks ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #CocaCola #Coke #Orange #OrangeVanilla #Vanilla #OrangeVanillaCocaCola #OrangeVanillaCoke #Juice #Cola #Pop #Beverage #Bev #Thirsty #Drink #JunkFood #SoftDrink #Soda #Pop #SodaPop #instagood #instadrink #drinkstagram #drinksofinstagram #Foodie #FoodPorn #tryitordiet #fastfood #IIFYM
