    Coffee-like froth? Eew.

    I’m having a really big issue with the missing ‘c’. Huge.

    Apparently I’m not urban, adult, nor hip.

    I have an even bigger issue with the for-art’s-sake “long” symbol hovering over the “a” — which should actually make the name sound like Coca-Cola Blake.

    Oh my – this is going to be the death of me and my fight against easing off caffeine. Two of my favorite beverages together!

    Think they’ll have a diet version? Or would that be caffeine free?

    I am SO not swallowing Blake’s froth, I don’t care how stinking effervescent it is.

    Man, that is about the worst press release I’ve ever read. I’m putting way too much effort into mine if that’s all it takes to be the beverage of global domination.

    Isn’t this already called Guiness? Oh yeah the Coke Bleeeech doesn’t have alcohol.

    Sounds good to me; I bet the blak drink is delicious. For the naysayers, well, you guys keep on drinking your pepsi! :)

    Holy crap it’s Pepsi Kona all over again.

    I had the “fortune” of being in one of the test markets for that swill, back in the mid 90s – it tasted about like you’d expect. Carbonated coffee with a horrible, horrible aftertaste.

    What next? Clear coke? :P
