Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) is ready for a new Life. After successful tests in Argentina and Chile, Coca-Cola's stevia-and-sugar-sweetened soda, Coke Life, will be rolled out in the U.K. this year.
The soda industry is dragging because of consumers wanting healthier beverages, whether it's less sugar overall or something other than the now controversial artificial sweeteners found in diet sodas. Coke hopes Life can reanimate some of its lagging sales by offering something a little more natural and healthy compared to its flagship products, Coke and Diet Coke.
In this episode of The Motley Fool's Where the Money Is, consumer-goods editor Mark Reeth has CG analyst Sean O'Reilly discuss whether Coke's new beverage will pump life into soda sales.
