Trader Joe’s Vintage Cola

(Last Updated On: June 15, 2010)

Trader Joe's Cola I was stocking up on stuff for my road trip to Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula when I spotted some new drinks (at least new to me) at Trader Joe’s. I was excited to try their line of soda pop, starting with their cola. I picked the cola because it’s caffeine free and it’s not easy to find caffeine free colas out there (that aren’t called Coke or Pepsi). This drink was sweetened with cane sugar and contains no artificial flavors or preservatives. The bottle also says that it is vegan and no gluten ingredients were used. Regarding the vintage name, that doesn’t mean that the drink contains cocaine in it, like the original Coke did.

3stars It’s a good drink, not great, but better than Coke or Pepsi. It has a nice cola flavor with the right amount of carbonation. My wife also enjoyed it. I would buy again. I am looking forward to try some of their other flavors.
