Not what most would think heaven, but I am thinking I am there now. Coke Zero Cherry flavour and Darrell Lea Choc Peanuts, yummo.
Even better is the fact the peanuts were only 80c a packet. I thought they would be out of date, but we checked them all and they are in date until Nov 2013.

So am having a little party whilst the girls are out the back on the slip n slide.

As you were...

















Blergh.. aspartame coke and peanuts ruining the chocolate!

I normally can't drink the coke zero, but love the cherry coke.

It comes in cherry flavour? Ooh. Maybe I can live with the metallic aftertaste for the cherry. I do so love cherry and chocolate. Great choice OP!

My weakness is Schweppes bitter lemon and condensed milk eaten from the can with a spoon. I suspect I'm weirder than you.

cherries - warmed in the microwave for a minute so they're nice and squishy, topped with vanilla icecream and powdered drinking chocolate.

Ohh man, sometimes.. just sometimes... I buy those little tubes of condensed milk purely for eating.  I make it last a week though!

Even better. Then I can ration it out. The coke zero is in 600 or 1500ml bottles.

Odd one out here.    
After years of hearing of this cherry-cola goodness I was so excited to see it on the shelves. Straight in the freezer when I got home, patiently waited. Tall glass with ice.
Blergh!
Tasted like medicine. Couldn't even palm it off to the teens.

Condensed milk though.....mmmmm, heaven in a tube.

i was only disappointed that it was 'american' cherry coke, and not like the old 'aussie' cherry coke (although i like american cherry coke, it just isn't the same)

And there are bottles of the stuff (as well as teeny tiny cans)
