Charlie’s runs social media taste test for launch of new cola

The Better Drinks Company has just released its first batch of Charlie’s Straight Up Cola, and it was produced and canned in only 10 weeks. And while this might be impressive, the speed of the product development isn’t even the most interesting part of the project. As part of the launch, Charlie’s is asking customers to take to social media and say exactly how they feel about the new product. The company is giving Kiwis the chance to share their opinions, and only if the feedback is positive, will another batch be produced.
