The taste: Coca-Cola said in a press release that the flavor was  ”inspired by space.”

  • The drink is red.
  • The Starlight flavor has “notes reminiscent of stargazing around a campfire, as well as a cooling sensation that evokes the feeling of a cold journey to space,” the company said in a statement.
  • “Coca-Cola Starlight combines great Coca-Cola taste with a dash of the unexpected, including a reddish hue.”

One important note: Astronomers think the center of the galaxy could taste like raspberries, so that’s something, per The Guardian.

The bigger picture: Per CNN, Coca-Cola has been working to reshape its drinks, eliminating the less-popular drink flavors and creating new drinks to bring in new customers.

  • Starlight is the first drink in a new program from Coca-Cola “that will see the soft drink marketer introduce limited-edition experimental flavors and accompanying digital and real-world experiences on a rolling basis,” per Marketing Dive.
