I don't know what's going on with soda these days. First Mountain Dew's Code Red with its "sensation as real as the streets" threw me for a loop. Now there's Vanilla Coke and Pepsi Blue. Being that I'm not a soda drinker, I haven't had much interest beyond the novelty factor. But vanilla is one of my favorite flavors so I couldn't resist at least trying that one. It tasted like Coke to me, but like I said, I drink it so rarely that perhaps my judgement is askew. I expected it to be more vanilla-y, like cream soda, which I guess I would just buy if that was what I was seeking.
