Coca-Cola hasn’t released a new flavor in a decade. Orange Vanilla will break that dry spell on Feb. 25th. The beverage is supposed to taste like a Creamsicle frozen treat. Coke considered other fruit flavors before deciding on Orange Vanilla. The potential list included raspberry, lemon, and ginger. Orange Vanilla will join Cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke. There will also be a Coke Zero Sugar version of Orange Vanilla.
