Coca-Cola is unleashing a strange new creation into the world, but the internet isn’t convinced humanity needs another freaking variation of Coke.
The soft-drink giant recently announced “Orange Vanilla Coca Cola,” their first “new flavor” in over ten years. While some are pumped for Coke’s melted orange creamsicle flavor, others were instantly grossed out by the random combination.
Behold! Orange Vanilla Coca Cola, corporate America’s latest concoction of carbonated water and corn syrup.
Coca Cola has just launched its first new flavor in more than ten years.

Like it or not, Coke’s new flavor will hit shelves in February 2019.
But Orange Vanilla Coca Cola is causing plenty of debate and controversy online, with some doubting Coke’s claims about their new flavor and others trashing the vanilla-orange combo as “Donald Trump Coke.”
One guy on Twitter wasn’t buying the “new flavor” announcement for Orange Vanilla Coca Cola.
Cinnamon, fiesta cherry, mango, ginger lime, zesty blood orange, Raspberry, California Rasberry & Georgia Peach say hi ????

But others were intrigued by the new drink’s unveiling.
I think it'll be good honeslty.. I know no one seems to feel that way but orange creme popsicles are good so why can't this?

Unfortunately for Coke, there was also a brutal backlash against the new flavor’s announcement.
The Coca-Cola Company is set to release new Orange Vanilla Coke. With this new flavor they hope to appeal to millennials, or anyone who enjoys a good puke.

For the first time in years, Coca-Cola is introducing a new flavor, Orange Vanilla. Ironically, orange vanilla is also the code name for cocaine hidden inside a navel orange smuggled into the Port of Miami.

Whenever Coca-Cola gets tired of leaving well enough alone, we get another gross new flavor. Who envisions “orange vanilla” flying off the shelves? https://t.co/021k4zEGlY

Many on Twitter joked the new edition of Coke is pretty much “Donald Trump flavor.”
Orange Vanilla ?
Can't they just call it the Donald Trump Coke.
It might go well with all those hamberders.

When I woke up I briefly overheard something about people being uneasy about the new orange vanilla flavor and immediately thought, "Oh Lord, what did Trump do now?“

“Orange Vanilla”? Is this “Trump Coke”?

Reports from first-tasters of “Trump Coke” have been mixed so far.

Errrrrm. No… according to me. Allison likes any type of Coca-Cola I think. Elizabeth likes any type of caffeine.

This might sound crazy, but I reckon President Donald Trump’s infamous addiction to Diet Coke will be replaced with a regular supply of Diet Orange Vanilla Coca Cola.
Trump is so self-obsessed, you know he won’t be able to resist a flavor that was named after his skin tone. He’ll probably enjoy his Trump Coke with a well-done Trump Steak from the White House’s deep freezer — and maybe some covfefe after?
