New Diet Coke flavors - now in Canada

I was at Sobeys this week and look what I found...

So far I have tried just the orange. It was ok, not super fizzy for some reason.

I'm not happy with their decision to offer a smaller can and only 8 cans per case instead of 12.
If the beverage included real juice I'd be a little more understanding.
(real juice 10% would be nice)

Ya - $4.49 for 8 cans is pricey and the cans are smaller to boot.

I see what they are doing with these - lower volume but higher margin. Will have to try the mango!

Would also be nice if they came in non-diet version.

Yeah, too bad. I would like to buy these but don't want to support giving us less and charging more for it.

My husband is really upset they discontinued Coke Life (in the green can). This may help.

Coke Life was not selling, you could see that.

I personally didn't care for the taste. Coke Zero way better!

I never shop at Sobeys but I saw this thread and immediately hopped in my car. Sobeys appeared to have skids of the new flavors but there was very little left. Got 1 each of the twisted mango, blood orange and Fiesta Cherry (they were out of Ginger Lime) along with some cherry coke zero in some really small cans (222ml) just because it was cherry coke zero. Also saw Diet Orange crush in cans which I have never seen before but never payed attention to be honest.

Thanks OP!

Cherry Zero has been around for a couple of months now but only in 10 packs of small cans. Diet Crush is around but you have to look for it, not many stores carry.

Was in another Sobeys - they had singles to try for 79 cents.

...and I see that their regular price is 89 cents per can at Sobey's.
I went to my local Circle K and paid 99¢ each plus tax EACH for two cans thinking that was a great price per can...obviously not, but at least it's sold cold for that price so I can drink it right away.
Anyway, the great thing about buying the cans separately is, if you don't like what you bought, you're not stuck with 7 more cans. lol

I'm drinking the Blood Orange right now. It's okay...not bad.
I'm trying the cherry one next.

The ginger lime is gingerier than I expected. Not too bad!
