LOS ANGELES - As pumpkin spice lattes make their return earlier and earlier to usher in the holiday spirit, Coca-Cola is unveiling their version of festive flavor with a new flavor: Cinnamon Coca-Cola.
It is expected to hit shelves in the U.S. in September.
The new flavor was revealed by the Instagram account candyhunting, which pointed out that the new cinnamon addition should make for a good combination because “Coke’s flavor leans more towards the brown spice flavoring than other colas.”
Confirmed! Cinnamon Coca-Cola will be out this winter in the US! This flavor debuted as a Zero Coke variant in the UK last winter. And a fun fact: Cola is a mix between citrus and brown spice flavors. Coca-Cola leans more toward the spice side and Pepsi leans more toward citrus. Adding extra cinnamon flavor will kick up that brown spice an extra notch.
According to the Instagram account, Cinnamon Coca-Cola was debuted as a Zero Coke variant in the U.K. last winter.
A spokesperson from Coca-Cola said that no official press release has been issued, but reassured eager consumers that the holidays will be kicking off early when the new festive drink hits shelves nationwide on Sept. 30.
The company says it is also releasing a Winter Spiced Cranberry-flavored Sprite to add even more holiday cheer to your taste buds.
