Complaining [Jan. 5th, 2006|07:38 am]
[Tags|, ]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

You see, some people just complain. I'm a person who is likely to email the Mayor of a town about inadequate parking at the train station, or send notice to Coca-Cola that I am unpleased with what they do. Great. A response from Korea. Yeah,.your name is Jennifer like I'm Cho Kim.

Subject: Diet Coke Feedback

I am unable to find Vanilla Diet Coke in my local stores. It is, and has been
my very favorite soda of all time. I really want to be able to buy it and so do
many of my friends in the area. It is so much better than the spenda flavor
(yuck). Please put it back into local stores.

As a reply, today I got:
Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company. We appreciate your interest in
Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke.

We will be launching Black Cherry Vanilla Coke and Diet Black Cherry Vanilla
Coke in January of 2006.

Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke have been solid contributors for the
Coca-Cola brand over the past three years. What we are demonstrating is the
ability to create and market profitable line extensions for our core brands and
the flexibility to capitalize on new opportunities when we see them. Consumers
still like vanilla and we think Coca-Cola Black Cherry Vanilla will appeal to
them. We believe that Coca-Cola Black Cherry Vanilla gives us the best
opportunity to further develop our Coca-Cola flavors at this time.

Vanilla Coke and Diet Vanilla Coke will go on hiatus at year’s end, but may be
made available again in the future. Please be assured that your comments have
been shared appropriately.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any additional questions or
comments, please visit our website again.

I kind of like the diet dr pepper vanilla cherry, but it has so many flavors it isn't the same as vanilla and it's way less fizzy. They suck at coke,..more email for them.

Re: that sucks

It's actually terrible (the new "black cherry vanilla diet coke".

I had some on Friday and it destroyed my faith in God.

You know, if you had a distributor contact then you may wish to ask and see if they still have some on hand and would be willing to part with some. If they are pulling it off the shelves as of the first then there should be still some in the distribution system.

The person to ask would be Dekeboy. If I remember correctly then he used to work for Coke and may still have some friends there. I will however keep an eye out for it.

You can make your own in the meantime. Costplus sells Torani diet vanilla flavoring (like the kind you put in coffee). It's 0 calories, so feel free to apply as much or as little as you want to your regular diet coke. I actually prefer this, because I like more vanilla than the vanilla diet coke usually has.

I've tried that, and to me it really is not the same. It gets too fizzless.

Those bastards!

I may just send them a nasty email about my missing lemon coke too. Lime sucks. I hate it! They might as well just stop making hamburgers too while there at it. That would really cap off my day.

Re: Those bastards!

this is so weird -- in my local grocery stores, two of the chains always have:

diet lime
diet lemon (tons of it)
diet vanilla
diet cherry (much less of this, and it's my favorite)
diet w/splenda

If it weren't a bitch to mail it to Sea, I'd do it for you all! :)
