Get ready to dive into some new wintery soda flavors coming out this holiday season! If there is one iconic soda tied to the festive season, it's Coca-Cola. Promoting themselves as an integral part of Christmas since the 1930s, the Coca-Cola Company has been leaving out bottles of Coke for Santa and his reindeer to enjoy. Just Last year the soft drink company tested out limited-time Coca-Cola Cinnamon in the U.K. and it looks like it is coming stateside this year along with brand-new Sprite Winter Spiced Cranberry. This upcoming Christmas season just got a whole lot spicier.
All About Coca-Cola Cinnamon

Confirmed! Cinnamon Coca-Cola will be out this winter in the US! This flavor debuted as a Zero Coke variant in the UK last winter. And a fun fact: Cola is a mix between citrus and brown spice flavors. Coca-Cola leans more toward the spice side and Pepsi leans more toward citrus. Adding extra cinnamon flavor will kick up that brown spice an extra notch.
News about the new flavor came this week after Instagram account Candyhunting shared the cinnamon coke on their feed. While it debuted as a Coke Zero flavor in the U.K., the United States version will feature the full-sugar version with extra cinnamon flavor.
The Instagram page also noted the similarities between the Coca-Cola Company and Pepsi Cola, sharing that Cola and Pepsi share most of the same ingredients (citrus and brown spice flavors), however, "Coca-Cola leans more toward the spice side and Pepsi leans more toward citrus."
The new Coke will be on store shelves starting September 30th and will be available through December 30, or until supplies last.
New Winter Spiced Cranberry
The new cranberry variant of Sprite is still under wraps, however, it should be noted that this new soda is different than their traditional Cranberry Sprite. While the flavor profile hasn't been announced as of yet, it can be speculated that this new flavor may win the hearts of many. According to reports from the Coca-Cola Company, sales of original Sprite Cranberry have doubled from 2013 to 2017, making it seem like this new soda could be a surefire winner.
