Alright, pursuant to the last post. Judging from some comments and conversations I’ve had since, I’m not the only person who wasn’t aware that Black Cherry Vanilla Coke has been on the market since ~7 months aft. A media brown-out like that means either a) we’re cankles-deep in a viral marketing campaign that has yet to gain momentum, or b) Coke shit its diaper and can’t figure out how to call the nurse. All fat-fingering buttons on the TV remote, all holding it up to their ear, all cantankerous about bad reception during a conversation with a long-dead family pet. Sad. Sad times.
Man, remember when Coke was on the Untouchables stizz? Pepsi’d be coming out with one lame marketing campaign after another, and we’d be all Excuse us, but we’re drinking whatever Cosby’s drinking, next order of business please.
But I guess it’s true that everything good turns sad and crappy eventually (But we at K4t appreciate your continued support!), so it’s no shock Coke is totally junior prom-ing it with the BCV. What I dislike about drinks like this is that they pile on too many flavors: nothing makes a strong impression, it’s all just varying shades of aftertaste. I always feel like some sips are all black cherry, some are more vanilla than anything, and the Coke flavor is buried too far down in all the noise. I spend all my time picking flavors apart and analyzing when I should be chillifying.
It’s too complicated. I can’t traffic with that nonsense, I’m a busy motherfucker. I just wrote “I’m busy motherfucking.” Ha ha. No but serious say hi to your mom for me.
