Coca-Cola has announced a new flavour of its classic drink which is now available to buy in the UK.

The company has combined the original taste of Coca-Cola with a zesty lemon flavour with the new product being described as ‘happiness bottled’.

Coca-Cola Lemon is available in both the Zero Sugar and Original Taste variations, allowing fans to opt for a zero sugar and zero calories choice if they want to.

The launch of the new flavour comes after increasing consumer desire for the addition of fun and fruity twists on the classic, Coca-Cola says.
