Cinnamon Coca-Cola now exists in the UK— and it's here just in time for the holidays

Facebook/Coca-ColaThe Cinnamon Coca-Cola Zero Sugar is available in the UK.

  • Cinnamon Coca-Cola Zero Sugar has just been released in the UK.
  • The new flavour is proving to be a talked-about addition to the Coca-Cola line.
  • This spicy flavour will only be available in the UK until the end of the year.

Coca-Cola wants to spice up your holidays with an unusual new flavour hitting UK shelves this season.

The soda brand announced new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Cinnamon on October 3 and called it “a drink full of festive flavour and no sugar, perfect for the lead-up to Christmas.”

Though the secret recipe for Coca-Cola probably already contains cinnamon, this new iteration of the classic soda turns up the heat and lets the festive taste and aroma of cinnamon take center stage.

Coca-Cola explained that the new spice-flavored drink was “launched in response to consumers’ love of [cinnamon]” and described the soda as “bursting with warming flavours.”

The reaction to the release was a mixed bag, with many wanting to try it for themselves.

This isn’t the first quirky offering that the soda giant has launched this year

US customers were treated to the arrival of four new Diet Coke flavours in January: feisty cherry, twisted mango, zesty blood orange, and ginger lime.

February also saw the launch of Georgia Peach and California Raspberry Coca-Cola, which the company called a return to its “artisanal roots.” These locally-inspired flavours were meant to harken back to the days when soda was mixed by hand at drugstores.

“Soda shops would experiment with different flavours,” explained Ted Ryan, Coca-Cola archivist, in a press release. “Vanilla and Cherry were favourites, of course, but you’d also find locally sourced flavours on tap in different parts of the country. Peach was popular in the South and, believe it or not, maple syrup was common up north.”

The new cinnamon flavour will only be added to the Coca-Cola Zero Sugar line

Unfortunately for Coca-Cola devotees living stateside, there’s no word on when or if this new flavour will be available in the US.

If you live in the UK, you’ll now be able to nab Cinnamon Coca-Cola Zero Sugar in 500ml or 1.25-litre bottles. Don’t delay – this new flavour will only be on sale until the end of the year.
