In the race to find new flavors, Coca-Cola has always been on the forefront of new tastes. Of course, some have worked out better than others. Coke Zero, Diet Coke... plus, everyone loves Cherry-coke, but New Coke continues to go down as one of the company's great failures.
As the old adage goes, if you're not failing, you're not trying. That's why Coca-Cola is trying again with a new sugar and calorie free flavor that adds 5 grams of dietary fiber to the soda.
The new fortified flavor hit Japanese shelves back in February as part of the company's new mission to add more 'functional beverages' to their inventory (Apparently 'Functional beverages' means keeping things regular).
The company says drinking just one Coca-Cola Plus per day with food can help suppress fat absorption and 'help moderate the levels of triglycerides in the blood after eating.'
Business Insider says the company spent more than a decade researching and developing the drink.
No word on when you can get the beverage here in the United States, but if you're feeling plugged up, an old wives tale says Dr. Pepper could be the tonic for what ails you.
