Coke goes low carb

June 4, 2004

Albany -- Cola drinkers prepare yourself because an old classic is getting a new twist.

Coca-Cola has climbed on the low-carb bandwagon. Next week Coke will roll out their newest product Coca Cola C-2.

The drink will taste like Classic Coke but with half the carbs and sugar. The move leaves many longtime Coke drinkers hoping the flavor won't fall flat.

"It would have to taste as good as regular coke. If it did I was would switch I think it's a good idea," says long time coke drinker Deanna Cagley.

Coca-Cola says the new Coke C-2 answers customers' requests for a soft drink that tastes like Coke but has fewer carbs and calories.
