Have you ever wondered what space tastes like? Well, Coca-Cola has announced a new “space flavored” soda named “Starlight”! The company revealed that the beverage is “inspired by space” and I can’t but help be intrigued by what that will taste like.
The product description says the drink contains “notes reminiscent of stargazing around a campfire, as well as a cooling sensation that evokes the feeling of a cold journey to space.” I still don’t know what that would taste like!
Here are some additional details thanks to Oana Vlad, Senior Director, Global Brand Strategy:
“Thirty-five years ago, Coca-Cola partnered with NASA to become one of the first soft-drinks to travel to space. That same passion for space still exists today. With Coca-Cola Starlight, we wanted to celebrate the remarkable ability of space exploration to inspire generations to discover new worlds of infinite possibilities. We set out to bring that concept to life through a simple sip, capturing some of the mystery and essence of what we love about space.
“For over a century, Coca-Cola has maintained its iconic status around the world as a symbol of optimism that has refreshed generations. When we launched ‘Real Magic,’ we wanted to connect with and celebrate the experiences that bring joy to young people today, and that has taken us to an exciting new territory. Coca-Cola Creations aims to surprise, delight and engage global audiences through magical and unexpected tastes, moments and collaborations – something we know our fans have come to expect from us.”
This is going to be interesting, but I can’t wait to see what space tastes like!
