New Coca-Cola Blāk certified kosher dairy

Coke is releasing new “Coca-Cola Blāk” in several countries this year, combining the flavors of their traditional soda with coffee.

Coca-cola Blak

From a press release:

Coca-Cola Blāk is an invigorating and stimulating blend that has a perfect balance of the effervescent taste sensation of Coca-Cola and natural flavors, with real coffee. The lightly carbonated, mid-calorie beverage, which is designed to appeal to adult consumers, is yet another example how The Coca-Cola Company reaches out to new audiences and addresses new beverage occasions.

I assume that “new beverage occasion” is “breakfast”?

Coca-Cola Blāk is not just a flavor extension. It is a blend of unique Coke refreshment with the true essence of coffee and has a rich smooth texture and has a coffee-like froth when poured. We believe we have created a new category of soft drink – an adult product in a carbonated beverage – and a whole new drinking experience. This brand is ideal for any part of the day when people are looking for renewed energy or simply to take a break

So, it’s a frothy AM coffee-soda hybrid. But where there’s coffee there’s milk, and the Orthodox Union will be providing a dairy designation to this flavor.

UPDATE: Had a chance to try Coke Blak… it’s actually pretty tasty. Only forty-five calories in a single bottle (uses a combination of corn syrup and artificial sweeteners) and offers a pleasant combination of Coke Classic and coffee.

I read about this on luach.com this morning, and was wondering whether or not it was true. When I went onto the OU website, I discovered that it’s a terrible website in terms of being able to quickly determine if a product has certification. They really need to upgrade their search functions.

The ingredients do not list any dairy products, but I’m guessing it’s made in a bottling plant line that makes other drinks that might???

It is dairy[not just made on dairy equipment] and in due time will bear the OUD designation.
