A few years ago, those GENIUSES at Coca-cola decided to discontinue packaging my favorite soda, Cherry Coke, in 12 packs. Well, yesterday, I'm at the store grabbing some 4 packs (like 6 packs, but with only four), and the Coke guy is restocking the shelf, and says 'hey, we have that in 12 packs right here'. I look, and LO and BEHOLD!! 12 packs of CHERRY COKE!!! OMFG!!! I'm ecstatic!! FINALLY those bastards got it back the way it should be. Gee... can you tell I like Cherry Coke? Anyone else?

I love cherry coke! But the vanilla stuff must be an acquired taste. IMHO it tastes strange. Not bad, just.....weird.

But have you tasted Dr.Pepper made with Imperial Pure Cane Sugar?? The best old recipe is being bottled again at one small Central Texas bottling plant. It's like name-dropping to say you have a few bottles. And it's like the old days of Coors being bootlegged across Texas.

ditto what operatorerror said, i can drink vanilla coke, but it just tastes strange to me, i bought an 8 pk a month ago, and still have 6 of them.

I understand they did this so that the smaller, more efficient 4 packs would fit in the new little hybrid cars that are just so darn popular these days [:D] A 12 pack might fill all the available trunk space.......

Cherry Coke is great. I think the vanilla stuff is freakin' nasty.
