Why did Coke take peach Fanta off the market? They were really good.

It might not have been taken off the market completely. Maybe it's just not a good seller in the area where you live.

Taste of cola
Posted by on
After being a very good customer of COKE I know what it supposed to taste like. I have enjoyed it for a long time. LATELY I have picked up several bottles of coke and have noticed much different taste. The new taste seems very flat and leaves at bad taste in your mouth. I don't want free coke or money but I will be switching my choice to Pepsi.

were the bottle out of date? stored in the heat?
GenuineNerd on 2011-06-26:
If the pop is a month or more past its expiration date, it will take on an "off" taste, especially if it's diet, since aspartame deteriorates after a few months. Usually diet sodas have a shorter expiration date than the sugared versions. The expiration dates are typically on the side of the cap and/or the neck on bottles, and on the box flap and bottoms on cans.
trmn8r on 2011-06-26:
I agree checking the date is a good idea, but I note that the OP states this happened with several bottles.

If I were a loyal customer like the OP, I would try to find an 800 number, and call and voice my concerns to a live CSR. Is there a # on the bottles?
Mr.Stupid on 2011-06-26:
No,Coca-Cola is great! As long as it is not expired.
Nohandle on 2011-06-26:
This is the first I recall reading about *flat* cokes. We've received them about Pepsi's before. Were both bottles purchased from the same place? It wouldn't have to be at the same time. All diet sodas (if that's what you bought) have a strange taste to me, no matter the brand.
madconsumer on 2011-06-26:
coke is good for cleaning dirty pennies and battery cables. it will also clean silver.
Anonymous on 2011-06-26:
You should check the dates, maybe the store had a bad batch. I wouldn't give up on a favorite beverage of mine.
GenuineNerd on 2011-06-27:
Maybe the OP purchased the Coke from a corner store or convenience store that doesn't turn over its inventory as frequently as a major supermarket or big-box discounter. On more than one occasion I have seen soft drinks on convenience store/corner store shelves that was past its expiration date...and the owners of these stores (often Middle Easterners) couldn't care less. Often times, these neighborhood stores would get older inventories that were returned to Coca-Cola and Pepsi by the major grocery and retail chains, so their product is most likely short-dated or expired.

I've purchased a 2 liter Coke from walmart and 1 from Publix both have the same nasty horrible taste
cgh on 2014-02-20:
I agree. I used to always enjoy drinking Coca Cola, but lately it leaves a horrible taste in your mouth and just tastes nasty. I cannot tell you why.

Very Bad Tasting Coca-Cola
Posted by on
PLAINWELL, MICHIGAN -- I have an old car (55 "T" Bird) and have it in a residential museum. I also have a Vendo 33 (1954) coke machine in the museum and stock it with 8 Oz glass bottles which it dispensed in 1954. I was elated to see that coke was using the 8 oz glass bottle again but also heard they were going to discontinue using them so I purchased 3 cases so I could use the old machine.

Now I find that all of the coke I bought has a terrible taste and has made my grandkids ill.

I have destroyed all the "bad" coke and hope I can purchase more but Iam, to say the least, a bit skeptical of doing so for fear that I will have the same results.

Signed,
Disappointed
Jim

You did the right thing by destroying all the bad coke.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2008-08-28:
Hmm, that's interesting. I've never seen Diet Coke in the 8 oz glass bottles, just Coke Classic. If you contact Coke, they may replace the bad Coke for you. I purchased Coke and when I opened it, it was flat. I contacted Coke, gave them the imprinted id #'s and they sent me a free case. Good luck to you.
GenuineNerd on 2008-08-28:
Diet sodas have a short shelf life; weeks after the expiration date on the packaging (I know the cans and plastic bottles have expiration dates stamped; maybe on the glass bottles there's a code on the cap. The typical shelf life of diet sodas is 3-4 months...usually within a month or two past the expiration date the aspartame in the diet sodas starts breaking down and the diet soda takes on a rancid taste. If you bought the bottles months ago, or if they sat on a store shelf for months, they're likely past their prime. Look for an expiration date next time you buy soda in glass bottles-most likely it's part of the code on the bottle cap.
MrBeanRocks25 on 2008-08-28:
Good to know, GenuineNerd.
Anonymous on 2008-08-29:
Good info from MSCANTBEWRONG and GenuineNerd. If you contact Coke they will make it right. I've never seen diet coke in the small glass bottles either, but I know they sell different sodas and different sizes/packaging in different geographic areas. Maybe they just don't sell it here because there is not a high enough demand for it.

I find the codes unreadable
Posted by on
I am a member of mycokerewards.com and I routinely purchase Fresca soft drink. I always purchase it in the 12 pack and yet when I try to register the code it is impossible to read. I have tried every combination that occurs to me and none of them match. Please make the numbers and letters clearer.

I have an employee who has used those coke reward points forever. He even drops by the local convenience store to pick up the empty cardboard packs the owner now saves for him. I would take him the bottle caps from empty 2 liter Sprite bottles. I could never read the code. Black print on the underside of dark green caps. This has gone on for a number of years so it's not new with the Coke Company.

Pepsi codes are just as annoying. Interestingly, with either brand, the only codes I can consistently read are the ones from the most expensive per unit codes" 20 oz bottles.

I told her I think Coke does it on purpose.

What can you actually get with the points? Is it worth doing?
Sparticus on 2010-10-10:
My wife mostly gets magazine subscriptions. They used to have some neat stuff. Now I think it is mostly fluff or just too many points needed to get anything good which is why my wife gets magazine subscriptions.

I didn't think you REALLY got anything from them. Guess I'll have to start up again.

BTW...some of the caps I found hard to read, I held up to a light and was able to read it much better. You can see it a lot more with the light shining from the back of the cap.
Skye on 2010-10-10:
Mr. Skye when he ACTUALLY entered his points did get some free music and soda.

I don't like all those little card board things all over the place. I like things neat and tidy, unlike Mr. Skye and his snail trial, lol.

MRM on 2010-10-10:
Skye, you don't get cash back from the points. But it sure does feels like free money when you are getting the rewards such as a gift card, electronics, or other items.
MRM on 2010-10-10:

GenuineNerd on 2010-10-10:
You could read the bottle cap codes by putting a flashlight under the cap, if it's a red (Coca-Cola), blue (Fanta, Dasani), or green (Sprite) cap. The black caps (from Coca-Cola Zero, Barq's, Powerade, and Minute Maid) are a bit hard to read, you have to look at the letters closely. The silver caps (from Diet Coke and Fresca) are the easiest to read. The 12-pack codes, if they are printed in a thin dot-matrix font, are hard to read as well; you have to look at them closely. The font used on the 12-pack codes depends on what plant the packaging was printed at. I have seen some 12-pack codes in a clear black font, with others in a harder-to-read light dot-matrix font.

On August 9 2013, I used 2300 points to purchase a Nike card worth $60. I did not realized that they had changed the way if receiving the Nike card. I put my code in but instead of printing out the paper with the code on it like they used to do, and I take it to the store this time they sent it to ur e-mail address. But unfortunately I have never used that e-mail address.Therefore yahoo had closed it. I contacted coke and they gave me the run around for an week and a half. I have the print out of where they took my points and everything. Finally I was told that they could not give me another code nor return my 2300 points. I am very disappointed in this company. I have dealt with them for years. It just hurt to know how I collected these point and to get ripped off. My daughter wanted her some Nike shoes. Now she will have to wait.

Dasani
Posted by on
I purchased a couple of cases of Dasani bottled water on Friday July 3rd. I noticed yesterday that the expiration date on the bottle caps is July 2007...YUCK! I can maybe understand one case but both of them. I'm going to write them a letter and see what they have to say about it. May want to check the dates on any Dasani you may have on hand.
Resolution Update 07/13/2009:
Ok, I have to give you guys an update on my expired water. It seems my husband is unable to read expiration dates on bottles. I just glanced at the area on the bottle where he indicated the expiration date was. I know, my bad...anyway I took a look at the new bottled water I bought on Friday and noticed where the real expiration date is located. The bottled water I had bought last week was NOT expired. I feel like such a moron!! LOL

try contacting coca-cola. if you have your receipt, they will often replace the out dated product. you will need the bottle to give them the bottleing numbers and such.

Wasn't Dasani the one that turned out to be tap water?

MS, wonder if the store has any fresher cases?
trp2hevn on 2009-07-08:
According to the Coke website, the water comes from the local utility, but is purified by reverse osmosis and then treated with UV light. I've heard good things about the reverse osmosis thing. I bet most of the bottled water is from the local water supply. It's probably just treated differently from brand to brand.

Eloise on 2009-07-08:
Coke isn't to blame in this case, it's the store you purchased it from. You might want to change the title of review and place blame where it is due. Coke didn't sell you an expired product the store did.
Anonymous on 2009-07-08:
I have to agree with Eloise. Its the stores responsibility to get rid of expired items not cokes. All thought I think the coke employee who stocked the shelf’s should have seen it.
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2009-07-08:
I'm going to return the product to the store but I want Coke to be aware of the issue. I don't want anything from them. My sister works at one of the grocery stores in another city as the DSD manager so I'll have her mention it to her Coke vendor. The vendors are very particular about rotating stock so this won't happen. Thanks for everyone's comments and suggestions.

KCRovert on 2009-07-09:
Does bottled water expire?? The only reason there is an expiration date on them is due to a law passed in New Jersey requiring all consumer "food" products to be date stamped. As a result, rather than producing a separate line of products for N.J. than all other states, businesses decided to put the date stamp on all products sold in the US, whether they really need them or not.
Anonymous on 2009-07-09:
Good question, KCRovert. When I prepare water for hurricane season (disinfecting the bottles and treating the water), it's recommended to only keep them for < year.
BokiBean on 2009-07-09:
I'm not sure if it expires..but I know that sometimes the taste can get tainted by the plastic it is in.

We always get tons of water at hurricane time..and had to throw out a bunch because it tasted just like the plastic jug it was in. Blech!
MSCANTBEWRONG on 2009-07-09:
I looked that up and because it's distributed as a food product to the public it has to have an expiration date. Some waters contain flouride which evidently does expire. Good question.

And good answer, MS!

Anonymous on 2009-02-19:
The issue is the OP can't uncap the new coke bottles. That's a big issue if you ask me because who wants a soda they can't open.
Anonymous on 2009-02-19:
Helpful post. Coke has joined prescription bottles as things people struggle to get open. This will be an issue for Coke's marketing as the Boomers age. They're not going to be happy when their arthritic hands can't open Coke products.
Slimjim on 2009-02-19:
I can't say I've noticed them harder to open but I do have an issue with them. We load a vending machine at an office location with the 20 oz bottles. Almost every other delivered case to stock it has one bottle with a mis-threaded cap, making it leak and flat all while technically being unopened. We have to pitch them and since we keep the price low for employees, it's a bit frustrating from a loss stand point.
Sparticus on 2009-02-19:
I've had a problem with Gatorade bottle caps for years. They are the twist off caps. Last summer I sprained my wrist trying to open one of those damn things. Sometimes I wonder if these companies even test this stuff?

Jeez, Slim, I wish you filled the machines at our hospitals. The machine owner does it at about 10% of the bottles are flat d/t loose caps.
DebtorBasher on 2009-02-19:
I totally Agree...in fact I had planned on writing a complaint about the same thing. I have to use a pair of pliers to unscrew the caps. This has been for at least six months or so. Even when I replace the cap back on the 2 liter bottles, sometimes I still can't get it back off without the help of pliers! I thought maybe it was just me, but since I've been staying with my Dad, I've had him try opening my Coke bottles and he can't either. They obviously changed something and it's not good. Sometimes when I have a half of a bottle of Coke left, the entire plastic bottle will twist and crinkle, but the dang cap won't come off.

I won't stop drinking Coke...but I will use the pliers or cut the top off to get to it...you know how us Coke addicts are!

Bottled pop
Posted by on
Your company sponsored our race car. We would like to see bottled pop in small bottles that we can use as mixers. That we can buy in cases or six packs. Not cans. Or even any cases or six packs of diet and reg. Bottles.

Thank you

Right on target! I have been waiting for over a month for delivery of a coke machine and new service at our Auto Service Center here in Spring City, TN. Rep will not even return our phone calls. I'm surprised he ever bothered to come out the first time. Got to be the worst service oriented company in the World.

Beware of Diet Coke
Posted by on
TENNESSEE -- I have drunken Diet Coke for a long time. Was feeling very ill for a while. Tired and achey beyond belief. Has anyone else experienced these problems with nutra sweet products?
Upon research I have found that if nutrasweet is heated above 84 degrees and especially 100 degrees it turns to methane and some other stuff that is very bad for the human body.

I drink diet coke constantly and I never had those problems.
miketech on 2006-06-13:
I'm glad you haven't Brenda and Jay you are right. I drink or hopefully drank way to much of it and the symptoms are only in the summer. I would suppose it is because of improper transportation and/or storage.
I do love the taste and caffine of Diet Coke, but not if it is going to make me sick.

That's why you will never find NutraSweet in fountain drinks - it can't stand the higher temperatures necessary to make fountain concentrate. There is a woman that Larry King has had on his show several times over the years - she links NS to all sorts of ills - up to and including the Big "C". She will scare you out of drinking diet drinks.

Methane is the major constituent of flatus (f*rts). We all know how deadly this substance can be. If one wants to eat healthy. Eat pig excrement...100% natural. Be sure to wear your tin foil beanies!

Nutra Sweet causes brain tumors.

I remember years ago being told that diet sodas are worse for you than reg sodas, and that unless there is a nutriotional reason why you are better off with the non diet ones. Nutrasweet is really bad for you.
but no worse than sacrin (sweet n low) remember when there was a warning about cancer and lab rats on items like Tab and sweet n low? It is gone because we would have to drink something like 100 gallons of tonic a day to get cancar from sacrin.

My diet coke never has a chance to get that hot so maybe that's why I'm OK.

I've never tried heating it to drink it hot. The thought of hot coke isn't very appealing. I prefer coffee. (tr)

LOL, pirate I think they mean if it gets warm, not heating it to be consumed as a hot drink! Mama Mia!

I used to drink about 30 cans of diet coke a day (sad by true). I developed horrible neck pain and head aches. In a casual conversation with a family member she mentioned similar symptoms and attributed to Diet Coke which went away when she kicked the dc habit. My neck pain and head aches ceased about three months after I drank my last diet coke. I have no way of knowing for sure if was the diet coke but I guarantee you I’m going to try to find out.

*spewing Coke onto my monitor* P-dub, you were around when "hot Dr. Pepper" was popular about 35 years back. For whatever reason that craze didn't last long for health concerns.

Nope, don't recall that. But as a child, I recall saving the labels/packages/wrappers of "funny-face" drink mix. You could send in a number of them to claim free "mugs."

My teeth were/are solid and I was well behaved. Maybe your experiences are isolate pirate. Coffee, tea, or coca-cappuccino?

I never drink Diet Coke, but I am addicted to Regular Coke. I drink it frozen, slushy, room temp and I have it on my bed stand throughout the night and on really hot nights, when I drink it, it is so warm that you can't even feel it in your mouth...but It is Coke ... a warm coke over any other cold drink anytime! I remembered the day they changed their formula ... no one dared to say boo to me or even look in my direction! Then they came back with the "Original" Coke and finally did away with the Pepsi clone all together.

Perhaps you were cowed into "good" behavior and never learned to "think out of the box," that would explain your menial jobs and lackluster existence. (tr)

Why would you drink Diet Coke that's heated above 84 degrees? Hot soda? Is that tasty for you?
Anonymous on 2006-06-13:

Stew: You probably had neck pains and head aches simply from tipping your head back when you drank out of the cans. Drink Dr Pepper out of a glass and all will be fine.

I'm sure just about everything we eat,drink,wear or drive is going to do something bad for us. I'm happy to have my fountain diet pepsi with ice filled to the top and an occasional pizza. I also eat fruit veggies and take meds for chronic pain. I also exercise,bath and brush my teeth. I enjoy the way my life is and use common sense to stay healthy. I'm not going to live in a bubble and drink water and eat only fruit and veggies. The experts are always finding something that'll kill you. If it makes you sick don't eat/drink it. Otherwise, moderation seems to be the smartes way to live. Just my opinion.

SMITHSBURG, MARYLAND -- I had a problem of a Coke product with a strange smell and taste I bought in a machine at work. I called the 800# on the bottle and although the phone reps were not the best once I got the local reps call back all things went well. They came and talked to me to be sure I was fine and took the soda for testing and gave several coupons for coke products. I think they handled the situation very professionally and was very satisfied with the representative whom I spoke with at my home. He even told me at the time if, since I drank some of the soda, I was to have a problem to be sure to let him know....
Great job Coca-Cola! I have liked your product since I lived in Atlanta and will continue to do so!
