Clear Cola?



This new soda recently showed up on store shelves in Japan.  It looks like water, but the label says Coca-cola and 0 calories.  I bought it and gave it a try.  It's fizzy with a slight lemony taste, but not cola flavored.  I probably won't buy it again, but it was worth a try.


Is this available where you live? Do you have any "odd" soda flavors?

Not seen here either Pamela, but I don't drink coke so would not be looking for it. Sounds more like lemon flavoured mineral water or soda water.

No, I haven't seen it here yet. The zero calories would have me looking at the ingredients. We don't use artificial sweeteners. Guess they will try anything to boost sales which are down in the USA.

I might have misunderstood this, but I think there is a clear version of real coke taste, not a lemon flavored beverage. Anyway, you have to read this article that answers why clear 'water look-a-like' drinks are so popular in Japan: https://soranews24.com/2018/05/09/suntory-has-clear-no-alcohol-plastic-bottled-beer-so-you-can-drink-at-work-without-being-judged/

Haven’t seen it here in the U.K., Pamela! But I don’t drink coke and wouldn’t be looking for it.
I’ll be looking for it now though!

I also thought the Coca Cola Clear would be Coke taste without the colour...fizzy lemon taste is just Sprite, isn't it? I don't drink Coke, so I really wouldn't know, though.
