Coca-Cola BlāK was a coffee-flavored soft drink introduced by Coca-Cola in 2006 and discontinued in 2008. The mid-calorie drink was introduced first in France, before making its way to the United States and other markets.

Release in Other Countries[edit | edit source]

In February 2007, the drink made its way to Central Europe as it launched in the Czech Republic. French-produced Coca-Cola BlāK can also be found in Poland, Slovakia, in some stores in Lithuania and in E.Leclerc stores in Slovenia.

The French and Canadian versions of Coca-Cola BlāK are sweetened only with sugar. The U.S. version of Coca-Cola BlāK replaces sugar with high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium.

Consumer Reports taste-testers found the French version to be less sweet and to contain more coffee flavor.

The American and Canadian versions had a plastic resealable cap on a glass bottle that resembled the classic Coke bottle, whereas the French/Czech version is a bottle shape formed from aluminum.

In 2010, Coca-Cola FEMSA, the largest Coca-Cola bottler in Latin America, released in Mexico coffee dispenser machines under the brand name BlāK.

Discontinuation[edit | edit source]

On August 31, 2007, trade magazine Beverage Digest announced that Coca-Cola would discontinue the drink's sale within the United States once concentrate supplies ran out.
