Coca-Cola Life

One of my friends sent a picture to me a couple of weeks ago and asked if I had that can.  What can was it?  I'd never seen one like it before.  It was a Coca-Cola Life can.  A what?

I said, "I don't have it!  Save it for me!"

When I got the can, I looked it over.  CC Life is sweetened with cane sugar and Stevia, the middle ground between real sugar and HFCS.  I didn't get to try it, but I would guess the taste is better than Diet Coke but not as good as delicious Mexican Coca-Cola.  And you get better taste (I'm assuming) at only 90 calories compared to regular Coca-Cola's 140 calories.

But the elephant in the room is the color of the can.  Is it "green" because its ingredients are more natural (somewhat)?  Is the competition green with envy?  Is it just another cash-grab for the company?  Green means go, so go get some Coca-Cola?  Or does that color stand out on the shelf at the grocery store?  YEP.

This is such an unusual color, especially for a Coca-Cola can, that I immediately wanted it regardless of what the contents of the can were or what the label said.  And just like the black Coke Zero cans, these cans will definitely stand out in the walls of red Coca-Cola can displays.  


  1. I have the Benelux and French versions of this can.

  2. If you want more of these cans - or the bottles - let me know. They are common here in Texas.

  3. I like it when soda pop cans depart from their main brand colour. Yes, this Coke can is great. There is also a Pepsi Next green can; it really stands out!
