A Nice, Subtle Addition

Karl-Martin Skontorp : “So, does it taste good? I have not met one single person who likes Vanilla Coke. Most people think the awful vanilla (sub-)flavor is inducing nausea and vomiting. Personally I have consumed 2 bottles of it. 2 bottles too many. It is really, really terrible.” I'm going to second that emotion: I've only had one bottle, and the first sip was actually pretty good. The rest were, to put not too fine a point on it, not.

The one thing Coke has done right, however, is a tweak of their can and bottle logo design: the yellow streak is a nice, subtle addition. And they have Coke in glass bottles at Costco (and, more importantly, the convenience store nextdoor) now. Coke in glass bottles, for some reason, tastes the best.
