Vanilla Coke.

When I was in my teen years, I always go grocery shopping with my Mom and Dad every other Saturday. My Mom has the list of the things we need which she crosses out once she put it in the cart and there's me and my Dad picking up food and drinks NOT on the list. Mostly, it's my Dad picking up chocolates, cookies and biscuits. Seriously. He especially loved getting me Oreos. I, on the other hand, loved the toiletries aisle, chips and cereals aisle and drinks aisle. Having said that, I love trying different drinks from local brands of juice, sodas to imported ones I even tried drinking different waters. You know, Perrier and some other "flavored" water which I don't think are still available.

Anyway, here's one of the two sodas that became my favorite then:

Have you tried McDonald's Coke Float? Well, that one reminded me of Vanilla Coke. I used to buy this in 1.5 L together with Pepsi Blue (which as far as I know is the only Pepsi soda that I appreciate). Then it wasn't being sold in the market anymore. I only saw Cherry Coke, Diet Coke (now Coke Light), etc.

So... I got too excited when I saw cans of Vanilla Coke in a local supermarket. I bought 5. Mind you, I am not a soda girl. I could barely finish an 8 oz. of Coke no matter how thirsty I am. But with Vanilla Coke, I could consume 2 a day and that's too much for me. ;)

I wonder if Pepsi Blue is still available somewhere. We used to have it here during Christmas season. Hmm.


  1. I love Vanilla coke. So they still make it?

  2. I love a vanilla coke float. I'll look for these when I go to the store this weekend. Thanks for bringing them to my attention. And like you, I'm not a coke drinker but this sounds good.

  3. @Ms. Marie: Yes, I think so. But I don't see it in all local supermarkets though.

    @MAC: Try this! :) It's good. It's a little sweeter than the regular coke, kinda like coke with ice cream without the actual thing. ;)

  4. I remember drinking this when it first came out here, about in the late 90's. I really liked it. Now I do not drink sodas much. I haven't seen it here in sometime.

  5. Vanilla is great in just about everthing. Vanilla coke is widely available in the U.S.
