Coca-Cola has branched out into many twists on the iconic drink, including cherry, vanilla, mango, and lime flavors. But it’s now ‘out of this world’ with a new taste that lists carrot in the ingredient.
Also including a blackcurrant flavor in the new blend, the limited-edition Intergalactic version that’s hitting stores now has had a mixed response from drinkers. Available in 250ml cans, it is slightly smaller than traditional 330ml cans and comes in a shimmery pink, purple and blackish design.
The global beverage giant has released the new version in a bid to get people talking about the drink. There is also a QR code that links to a Coca-Cola Creations site with a performance by Ava Max and other content.
Below, we take a look at how people on social media reacted.
Sparkling with excitement
Justagirl tweeted very positively about the drink, “The first intergalactic cola taste was better than sex.”

Lee2e said, “try the new Coke Zero Intergalactic, taste like cotton candy like coke, really nice.”
Aehen Kohben said, “Maybe my favorite Coca-Cola drink.”
But there were also dissenters, including Meg Munford who wrote: “Wtf is Coke Zero intergalactic ????? I thought it was just a funky box design. Whoever created this abomination needs to be fired.
While Clint wrote, “This Intergalactic Coke is kinda shitty, isn’t it?”
Doja Fat tweeted, “It tastes like watered down Coke Cherry. Just another way to boost their sales I think.”
Matt Ed said: “A slight taste of cotton candy… Honestly, a little disappointing.”
Medium Kahuna was a bit neutral: “To me, it tastes like Coke with a bit of cream soda.”
But Simao Sesgunda went hard: “The new intergalactic coca is sinister.”
