Coca-Cola Raspberry[edit]

On 20 April 2005, Coca-Cola Amatil announced the launch of Coca-Cola Raspberry for a release on June 1 New Zealand for a limited time.[1] It was the third Coca-Cola flavour to be released in New Zealand after Cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke, but was the first to be made for the country. It was sold until the end of the year, and was released in Fiji the following year.

The drink made it's US debut as a selectable choice on the Coca-Cola Freestyle touch-screen soda fountains in 2009, although this variant of the drink, like all Coca-Cola flavours, is simply flavour syrup added into regular Coca-Cola.

On 26 October 2017, Coca-Cola Amatil announced that the drink would return to New Zealand for the 2017-2018 summer season. This version of the drink utilized a different formula from the 2005 incarnation, containing the artificial sweeteners Sucrolose and Acesulfame-K that would allow the drink to have 25% less sugar than standard Coca-Cola.[2] The drink was introduced into Australia as well, with the same formula.[3]
