If I Could Just Find a Vanilla Coke…

I heart Vanilla CokeCall it a vice, but some days I really crave a vanilla coke. And this is coming from a girl who doesn’t usually drink soda! I’m not really much of a sweet-tooth, in general. But there’s something about that flavor that really does it for me, ya know?

For some reason, they don’t market it anymore. There was some kind of revival a couple of years ago, just to get me thinking about it again, and then poof– goodbye, soda!

I see other people with their Diet Coke or even Cherry Coke and feel a little envious. Sure, it’s probably better for my health that it no longer exists in the free world but I could restrain myself from daily consumption. I just want a little fix now and then, OK?

When I’m stressed (like right now), or a little down (me again), or completely exhausted (um, yep!) I long for a bowl of popcorn and a glass filled with crunchy ice cubes and the tasty, vanilla-flavored liquid that is known to de-grease bicycle chains. Ah, refreshing!

  1. Can you just stick in a few drops of extract or is that not the same? There has to be a recipe on the web out there for you.

    I feel the same way about Lays Limón when I am out of California.

  2. Believe it or not, I’ve actually seen Vanilla Coke from the FOUNTAIN at Wahoo’s on Wilshire Blvd., just west of Barrington. It’s delicious.

  3. Haha, one of my jobs in high school was at an old fashioned ice cream soda fountain. We made that stuff with the extracts and such. I thought it tasted fine, but then again it all tasted good pulled up to an old fashioned bar. It was a cool place to work.
