Coca-Cola Energy Is Coming To The US, Goodbye Coffee!

Coca-Cola announced this week that it's bringing its first-ever Coke-branded energy drink, which is called, you guessed it, Coca-Cola Energy, to the US in 2020.

The drink is already available in 25 countries around the world, but will be launching in the US for the first time. Yeah, it still tastes like Coke, but has 114 mg of caffeine per can, which is about as much as a cup of coffee (for reference, a normal, 12-ounce can of Coke has about 34mg of caffeine).

The energy drink will be available in regular Coke and Coke Zero flavors, which are already available internationally. But in the US, Coca-Cola Energy will also be available in Cherry Coke and Cherry Coke Zero flavors because Cherry Coke is apparently just so darn popular over here.

Coke says the move to bring this drink to the US is part of the brand's plan to bring more kinds of beverages to shelves that are not soda, as well as twists on classics like that limited-edition Cinnamon Coke you've probably been hearing so much about.

As for how it tastes? Reviews for the drink internationally have been pretty mixed, with some saying it's basically just Coke with more caffeine in it (probably what they're going for TBH!) and others saying that it tasted "chemical-like" to them.

You can expect to see Coca-Cola Energy hitting shelves near you in January 2020, so you can give it a taste for yourself. Happy caffeinating!
