Coca-Cola has confirmed that it is pulling its coke and coffee drink, Coca-Cola Blak, from the US market.

Speaking to just-drinks today (31 August), a spokesperson for the company said: "Coca-Cola Blak is still available on store shelves around the US. As bottlers and customers work through their current stocks they will not be replenished. Coca-Cola Blak is still available in France, Spain, Canada, Czech Republic."

The coffee blend, which was introduced 17 months ago after a two-year development period,  retailed at US$1.99 per bottle, and was seen as the soft drinks giant's efforts at piggybacking the lucrative coffee and premium beverage category.
