And third wrote: “Finally a NPD [new product development] that tastes good. Diet Coke Festive Clementine.”

But not everyone is so convinced, with one user describing the drink as “vile” – and another wrote that they preferred last year’s Christmas special.

They commented: “Not as nice or as festive as last year, would much rather have the cinnamon one back.”

Other flavoured Coke products that have been produced over the years include mango, cherry, strawberry and lime.
