I'm a huge fan of Coca-Cola, liking it far more than Pepsi. Although classic Coke is my favorite, I'm not opposed to trying new flavors, and I often like the varieties. But Vanilla Coke is one of the worst variations of Coke that I have tasted. I had tried it occasionally at a friend's house or at a party, and I wasn't overly impressed with it. Then I decided to get some of my own to give it a more extended chance. I genuinely tried to learn to like it, but I just couldn't learn to like it. To me, vanilla and Coke are two flavors that just do not go together very well at all. They taste great separate, but putting them together is a huge mistake. Everything else about the soda was good (size of cans, price on sale, etc), but the poor taste overrides any good benefit. I managed to get through the twelve-pack that I had in my attempt to learn to like it, but after that I have given up. I don't plan to try it again.
