You’ve gotta hand it to the folks at Coca-Cola.  Basing a flavor on something flavorless is pretty bold…They’re debuting a new drink on Monday that’s supposed to taste like “OUTER SPACE“.

It’s called Coca-Cola Starlight, and no one knows the REAL flavor.  They’re just saying it’s inspired by space and, “notes reminiscent of stargazing around a campfire . . . as well as a cooling sensation that evokes the feeling of a cold journey to space.

It’s a limited time-only thing.  Both original and zero-sugar options hit stores nationwide on Monday.  One reporter who tried it said it tastes like regular Coke, just sweeter.  And it’s red, which was, “inspired by the light of the stars.”

Fans are also saying that according to a 2009 study, it found the center of the Milky Way might taste like raspberries and rum.  So maybe that informed the flavor too. I guess we will wait and see on Monday!
