Aha! Finally I’ve got my hands on some Coca-Cola Blak from Covent Garden’s amazing Cybercandy (along with some rather disturbing minty Malteser wannabes, three sugar mice and some chocolate Band Aids) and I have come to some initial conclusions. It is actually not so bad. It has a slightly weird smooth texture to it that feels more like coffee than Coke, is of course ridiculously sweet and feels a bit more adult than Coca-Cola, but not by much. I can’t imagine it’s going to sweep the world before it, but I don’t regret buying the six cans which I will be placing in my fridge and drinking whenever I need to feel a little tiny bit more classy than normal.
PS. I don’t know if this is going to mean anything to anyone, but it sort of reminds me of Camp Coffee, a weird chicory based syrup that I used to love a few years ago. Only fizzy.
