Well, I tried it tonight, and at first...it seemed like I was tasting cough syrup. yuckie. Cherry Coke, yes, Vanila coke, yes. Black Cherry Vanila coke, I don't think so.. I think this tast goes beyond tart. almost like medicin. Oh well. I kept 4 cans of vanila coke for rainy days, so I'm set. At least with my coca cola products.
