    Oh, what a disgusting, vile concoction! I tried this the other day, not even knowing anything about the product or what it was supposed to taste like. :yuck: :yuck: :yuck: I couldn't spit it out fast enough!

    Turns out it's coffee-flavored Coca-cola.
    bleeeeccchhh!!!!!

    I like coke and coffee but I can't imagine putting them together that's just gross.

    I am sure they would if they could get away with it.:bugeye:

    No doubt!!! It totally reminds me of the "I'll eat or drink anything for a dollar guy" in high school. We used to make up some really gross combinations out of our lunch leftovers to challenge him with. Coke and coffee would have definitely been the type of thing we would mix up for him. :yuck:

    I tried some too, and I must admit, if it were the last thing on the world to drink...I would drink it again. Please God, don't let it come to that.

    Who's idiot niece or nephew has been put in charge at Coca Cola? What a moronic idea. :mad:

    Hypatia and Evo, I am glad it is not just me that finds this horrifying. I know they rolled Blak out in France first. I wonder what the French thought about it? Je vais googler "blak" et "dégueulasse"...

    Eeeeeeeewwwwwww!!!! :yuck: I cannot imagine coffee and cola together. I had Coke, then coffee today, but they most certainly should not have been served in the same cup at the same time. :yuck:

    I had tried it over a friend's house, and I don't think it's too bad. I don't think I'd buy it myself, but some energy drinks out there are surely worse... I think it might be an aquired taste, you know?

    Tastes HORRIBLE. I actually bought a 4 pack, thinking it will taste good... BLEH

    It doesn't taste like coffee AT ALL!

    It's really a perverse combination!

    Not when you're a caffeine addict like me.

    Just out of curiosity, are you in the under 30 or over 30 crowd? When I tried it I thought, ew! this is so sweet, maybe they are targeting kids with this product and that's why I find it so yucky. But nope, quite the opposite - they are marketing Blak to a 30-50 year old demographic, and I am right in there. I should be lapping the stuff up.

    They had the 4 packs in the stores last week, but it was so expensive, there was no way I would commit to buying that many. The singles came out, so I said, OK, I'll try just one. Glad I didn't buy that 4 pack now.

    Well, you can't really admit you're selling something super-caffeinated to kids, can you? It'll probably find its market on college campuses during final exams when students are pulling all nighters and will drink anything if it will keep them awake.

    This sounds terrible, but I'll try it...

    lol, the three I have left will probably be put into use in the next week or so :grumpy:

    If this thing will keep me awake, I just may be almost happy about buying it...

    i'm gonna have to agree. both are pretty much acquired tastes, so i'd imagine that combined there'd be a good deal more acquiring necessary.

    Especially since even those of us who already have acquired the taste for each individually still wouldn't touch that concoction with a 10 foot pole!

    If it came out recently, then it is just in time for my finals. Sounds like it will be more the taste that will keep me awake than the caffene.

    :yuck: Oh, just imagine, since it's Coke, every time you burp, you'll taste it again, and you're guaranteed to burp at least a few times if you drink it. :yuck:
