Coca-Cola BlāK

Coca-Cola BlāK was a coffee-flavored soft drink introduced by Coca-Cola in 2006 and discontinued in 2008. The mid-calorie drink was introduced first in France and subsequently in other markets, including Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania and Slovenia.

Coca-Cola BlāK launched in the United States on April 3, 2006. Coca-Cola BlāK launched in Canada on August 29, 2006 in Toronto, Ontario at Dundas Square. In August 2007, trade magazine Beverage Digest noted that Coca-Cola would discontinue the drink within the United States.

The French and Canadian versions of Coca-Cola BlāK were sweetened with sugar. The U.S. version of Coca-Cola BlāK replaced sugar with high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, and acesulfame potassium. Consumer Reports taste-testers found the French version to be less sweet and to contain more coffee flavor.

The American and Canadian versions had a plastic resealable cap on a glass bottle that resembled the classic Coke bottle, where the French/Czech version was a bottle shape formed in aluminum.

In 2010, Coca-Cola FEMSA, the largest Coca-Cola bottler in Latin America, released coffee dispenser machines in Mexico under the brand name BlāK.
