Growing up, nothing quenched my thirst quite like a Cherry Coca-Cola. It was my go-to drink when I went out to my local movie theater to watch the latest blockbuster movie. In true Taurus fashion, I was reluctant to expand my Coca-Cola flavor palate until one day, I was convinced to try a Vanilla Coca-Cola. The smooth, sweetness of the vanilla mixed with the strong, robust taste of a traditional Coke was a match made in heaven to my tastebuds. From then on, I’ve found myself jumping at the first opportunity to taste any new Coca-Cola flavor that hits the market. I’ve even going as far as enjoying Coca-Cola soft serve ice cream.

Unlike many of their competitors, Coca-Cola appears less interested in the quantity of flavors offered (at least stateside) and instead, has focused on the quality of flavors they produce. Case in point: Last January, Coca-Cola offered a brand new twist to the iconic drink — Coca-Cola with Coffee — in three tasty flavors: vanilla, caramel, and dark roast. Now, a full year later, the brand has announced the newest member to its expanding lineup: Coca-Cola with Coffee Mocha.

The new drink brings together the classic taste of Coca-Cola with a rich, mocha coffee flavor sure to give you the jumpstart you need to keep the day going. Each of the 12-ounce cans are infused with Brazilian coffee and packs 69 milligrams of caffeine, which is nearly double the amount in a typical can of Coca-Cola so if you skip your morning coffee, you’ll still be good to go.

In addition to a new flavor, Coca-Cola is also introducing a new look for its packaging. The update signifies what the brand notes to be “a modern edge to the same great tastes.” The new design features vivid colors and an eye-catching logo near the top of the packaging. Solid colored cans will signify single flavors — like cherry and vanilla — while stacked colors communicate dual flavors, like cherry-vanilla. A gold top will represent their caffeine-free flavors, and both the zero-sugar and zero-calorie versions will be represented by including a black script of the signature logo.

Since both Coca-Cola and coffee are as American as apple pie, what better way to enjoy them than together? Be sure to pick up a can when it hits stores on February 7th.
