Tanner Hall stopped by the other day and brought me a few cans of Red Bull Cola to try. The new product, set to be launching next month is an all natural formula, which happens to include coca leaf as one of the ingredients.
Red Bull is currently buying large parcels of coca leaves in Columbia and using the for the soda. The coca leaf is the main ingredient to production of cocaine, so that's interesting marketing to say the least. Red Bull claims it's cola is "strong and natural".
The taste is refreshing, the cola's ingredient list includes licorice, orange, cardamon, mint and mustard seeds. It's got a slight herbal taste that is really refreshing, it's a bit similar idea to China Cola by Reeds.
I am not a soda drinker, but if I had to reach for a cola, this would be my choice.
