Coke ‘life’ fans ?

Wed Dec 09, 2020 10:53 am

This has been my favorite Coca Cola product for years now, especially in the green labeled bottle


Predictably they’ve ended production, it was always hard to find, now it’s next to impossible and I’m only seeing it online at outrageous prices


Anyone else enjoy this product and do you know where it can still be found at a reasonable price?

Apparently it has been discontinued : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola_Life

I never drank a lot of Coke as my parents never bought any soda, so it was like a rare candy for me, and only started to drink more of it with Coke Zero that I now buy regularly. Life has just "less sugar" than normal Coke so there is no point for me. Also I don't like Stevia in most things, I can taste it.

Coca Cola life never took hold, as it tried to balance between a diet and a full coke. Coca Cola Zero's/Diet Coca cola taste and subsequent flavoring breakout absolutely destroyed the middle ground. Why waste calories on a carbonated drink if the taste is just as good?

I think I tried Life once in a store, but that was about it.

Well it was my favorite and as always my favorite things are not liked by most and they go away


Boo hoo...

Oh well. there are a lot of things that go away. If Coke life was great, perhaps you could approach Coca Cola and petition for a revival ?

It appears that very few shared my enthusiasm, I like the idea though !

It could be Max Q life. The Q-anon crowd might join in. :)

I tried it a few times and I don't really like it. More of a Coke Zero fan myself.

How about we talk about paint drying? It's healthier and more entertaining ;)

Depends what's in the paint. Plenty of potential toxicity.
