COCA-COLA has shared disappointing news with fans regarding a popular flavor.
Coca-Cola owns over 35 brands and offers a seemingly endless selection of beverages.
As soon as someone finds their favorite cola product, a lifelong bond is usually formed.
Unless the drink is randomly discontinued.
On X, formerly known as Twitter, a fan asked the company when it would be bringing back “Stevia Coke.”
This version of cola has been sweetened with cane sugar and stevia – giving it a distinct flavor.
Unfortunately, Coca-Cola had to deliver bad news.
“In consultation with our North American portfolio team, we made the decision to discontinue Coca-Cola Stevia in Canada to focus our focus on other diet and zero sugar brands such as Coca-Cola Zero Sugar,” the company said said on X
Coca-Cola’s website describes Coca-Cola Life as “a reduced-calorie cola sweetened with a blend of sugar and stevia leaf extract.”
Although it still shows on the site, it also states that “no sellers” are available.
Those who want to enjoy a sugar-free soda can still purchase Coke Zero Sugar, which comes in decaffeinated, cherry-vanilla, cherry, and vanilla flavors.
Aside from cola and diet cola, there are more than 60 flavors of soda pop around the world.
With so many options, not all of them can last forever.
Another cola product that fell off the shelves is Coca-Cola Energy.
Launched in 2020 as the first Coke energy drink, it came in four flavors: Original, Energy Zero Sugar, Energy Cherry, and Energy Cherry Zero Sugar.
But it didn’t have enough impact for consumers.
The drink only had 80 milligrams of caffeine, while other popular energy drinks like Redbull had a whopping 111 milligrams.
Ultimately, most buyers chose to stick with old replacement brands like Monster and Red Bull, resulting in Coke Energy being discontinued.
However, some fans still miss it.
“I’m really sad,” said one shopper on Reddit upon learning the product was discontinued.
“I love cola-flavored things and while the Celsius cola is decent, the cola energy always hits the spot.”
While the drink is no longer available on US shelves, you may find it in Canada and the United Kingdom, where demand for the drink is higher.
Coca-Cola has confirmed that another popular flavor is coming out on top.
