Vintage Cola Flavor Deep Dive
Meet Vintage Cola
Our small batch prebiotic Vintage Cola has the same old-fashioned taste you grew up loving but naturally enhanced with distinct notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and caramel. It strikes a delicate and delicious balance between healthy and crave-able.
Vintage Cola Inspiration Story
All of our OLIPOP sodas have iconic flavors that everyone knows and loves. Of course, our Vintage Cola is no different. Most people have memories around sipping on a cola-flavored beverage, from at a movie or sports game or home with lunch. So, we decided to make our version but upgrade the flavor and add some function while we're at it.
Wanting to create a soda that competes and offers the same love-able flavor as the more prominent brand cokes, we ensured ours had the notable vanilla and caramel flavor notes. Knowing that often people reach for a coke when they need an energy boost, our co-founder and formulator, Ben Goodwin, added 50mg of green tea caffeine.
Vintage Cola Nutrition
In addition to creating the iconic cola flavor, we imparted nutritional benefits to our version. Unlike traditional sodas, our version has significantly less sugar at 2g and swaps the artificial ingredients for plant-based ingredients like real fruit juice that help provide its sweet flavor and 9g of fiber. All of our sodas are made with an in-house proprietary blend we dubbed OLISMART that consists of eight unique botanicals, plant fibers, and prebiotics (the primo food source for beneficial bacteria), each hand-picked for their biome-supporting benefits. Our OLISMART blend combines three different prebiotic fibers—chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, and cassava fiber—that feed the gut microbiome.
Vintage Cola Reviews
"Choosing a soda that contains natural prebiotic fibers for gut-health support, no caramel coloring, real juice and spices like cinnamon for flavoring, and stevia leaf for sweetness instead of high fructose corn syrup is a dietitian's dream come true. And this soda unicorn became a reality when Olipop Vintage Cola came into existence."
Eat This, Not That
- "Love Vintage Cola, just sweet enough and no artificial sweeteners also good for your microbiome." - Lorette L.
- "35 calories never tasted so yummy! I like the taste of the vintage cola. The digestive benefits and 35 calories are a plus. I used to drink regular Cola, but the high fructose corn syrup is a deal-breaker for me."- Helen Fay M.
- "I was hooked on *name brand cola* for many years, much to my distress (SO much sugar!). It took me a few cans to get used to the unique Olipop Cola flavor, but now I love it and am happier for it (SO much LESS sugar!!). Thank you, Olipop - keep the cases coming…" - Mark S.
