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.

Why did you choose A&W? I'm guessing for the colour (it used to be brown - is it clear now?), since pink cream soda gives this recipe's foam a weird tint.

I have been mixing Coke Zero and black coffee, about 3 parts Coke Zero to one part coffee... and with the right coffee it comes out pretty close. I hadn't thought of cream soda, but that's an intersting thought. That might explain why most of the time it's not quite sweet enough or not quite smooth enough... I'll try it, thanks!
