Two years is all it took for Coca-Cola to banish this new hybrid of cola and black coffee to the land of the Dead Foods—in 2008. It may have been the steep price that scared customers away, since they were getting a very small 8-ounce Coca-Cola beverage for $1.79. Others claim it was the unusual flavor, although I actually thought it tasted pretty good—like a combination of Coca-Cola, cream soda, and coffee. Hey, that sounds like a great combo for our hack. Dissolve some NutraSweet (that's what Coca-Cola uses) in cold espresso, add it to the sodas, and you'll get 24 ounces (3 servings) of a remarkable clone at a total cost of just 90 cents. That's more like it. Another Dead Food resurrected.

Just made this today and boy did it take me back. Hit that Coke Blak nostalgia button right on the nose. Delicious!

I've been trying to figure this one out on my own. I figured that it was just plain old Coke and black coffee, and that I just couldn't get the ratio right. Damned if I'd ever think of cream soda. Eleven stars out of 5. You win.
