Late last month Coca-Cola announced it was officially launching an alcoholic beverage business in Japan. Now the soft drink manufacturer is gearing up for another special flavor of its beloved beverage, this time in cinnamon.
Some Coke fans have already tried the upcoming flavor as a similar variation released in the UK last year. Now the company is brining the flavor to the U.S. Although Coca-Cola has yet to officially reveal the news, the trusted Instagram account Candy Hunting revealed the new flavor.
The post reads: “Confirmed! Cinnamon Coca-Cola will be out this winter in the US! This flavor debuted as a Zero Coke variant in the UK last winter. And a fun fact: Cola is a mix between citrus and brown spice flavors. Coca-Cola leans more toward the spice side and Pepsi leans more toward citrus. Adding extra cinnamon flavor will kick up that brown spice an extra notch.”
Cinnamon-flavored Coca-Cola is expected to hit shelves for a limited time between September 30 and December 31 of this year.
According to Thrillist a spokesperson also confirmed the release of another holiday-themed soda, Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry.
