- Cinnamon Coca-Cola Zero Sugar has just been released in the UK.
- The new flavor is proving to be a talked-about addition to the Coca-Cola line.
- This spicy flavor will only be available in the UK until the end of the year.
Coca-Cola wants to spice up your holidays with an unusual new flavor hitting UK shelves this season.
The soda brand announced new Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Cinnamon on October 3 and called it “a drink full of festive flavour and no sugar, perfect for the lead-up to Christmas.”
Though the secret recipe for Coca-Cola probably already contains cinnamon, this new iteration of the classic soda turns up the heat and lets the festive taste and aroma of cinnamon take center stage.
Coca-Cola explained that the new spice-flavored drink was “launched in response to consumers’ love of [cinnamon]” and described the soda as “bursting with warming flavours.”
The reaction to the release was a mixed bag, with many wanting to try it for themselves.

This isn’t the first quirky offering that the soda giant has launched this year
US customers were treated to the arrival of four new Diet Coke flavors in January: feisty cherry, twisted mango, zesty blood orange, and ginger lime.
February also saw the launch of Georgia Peach and California Raspberry Coca-Cola, which the company called a return to its “artisanal roots.” These locally-inspired flavors were meant to harken back to the days when soda was mixed by hand at drugstores.
“Soda shops would experiment with different flavors,” explained Ted Ryan, Coca-Cola archivist, in a press release. “Vanilla and Cherry were favorites, of course, but you’d also find locally sourced flavors on tap in different parts of the country. Peach was popular in the South and, believe it or not, maple syrup was common up north.”
The new cinnamon flavor will only be added to the Coca-Cola Zero Sugar line
Unfortunately for Coca-Cola devotees living stateside, there’s no word on when or if this new flavor will be available in the US.
If you live in the UK, you’ll now be able to nab Cinnamon Coca-Cola Zero Sugar in 500ml or 1.25-liter bottles. Don’t delay – this new flavor will only be on sale until the end of the year.
