A year after his debut in the UK, Cinnamon Coca-Cola comes to the US.
Cinnamon Coke Zero fell on the shelves in the UK for the first time in the winter of 2018, and this year it will arrive for the holidays this fall.
According to the popular snack account on Instagram Candy hunting, Coca-Cola is confirmed to roll out Cinnamon Coke in the coming months.
Coming soon: Coca-Cola is launching a limited edition cinnamon flavor in the US on 30 September.

The new flavor is a mix between citrus and brown herbal flavors – and it appears to be the full sugar version, unlike the version released in the UK.
"Launched in response to the love of the general public for taste, the new addition to the Coca-Cola family is bursting with warming flavors and you are guaranteed to get into the party mood when we face Christmas," the British press release last year.
Alec Mellor, marketing manager at Coca-Cola Great Britain, said at the time: & # 39; Since the launch of Coca-Cola zero sugar, we have added an exciting addition of new flavors to the range.
& # 39; Only for a limited time we are pleased to announce the launch of Coca-Cola zero sugar Cinnamon, which we hope our current fans and those who want to try a new flavor will love. It is a drink full of festive taste and no sugar, perfect for the run-up to Christmas. & # 39;

It seems to have been a hit enough to make a wider debut this season.
And it is not the only festive soft drink that the brand will send to the supermarket shelves in the coming months.

Candy Hunting also reports that a new limited-edition Winter Spiced Cranberry Sprite flavor is coming.
Thrillist confirmed that the drinks will be on the shelves on September 30 and will stay on until at least New Year.
While some customers are excited about the two new additions, others are a bit skeptical – with different people wondering how Winter Spiced Cranberry Sprite will be different from regular Sprite Cranberry.
Others point to Pepsi with cinnamon flavor, which came out in 2017 and lasted only eight weeks.
Pepsi Fire debuted in the summer, and there was also a Pepsi Fire Slurpee on 7-11 – although neither was a big hit.
But at least Cinnamon Coke has some fans in the UK who tweeted about the soft drink.
& # 39; It tastes as expected. A bit like a cinnamon roll while drinking a coke, & tweeted one.
& # 39; The new Christmas Coca Cola Zero with cinnamon is really good. It tastes like full coke, & another one said.
Yes or no? Cinnamon Coke had mixed reviews when it was launched in the UK last year
& # 39; I just took a sip of cinnamon coke and it tastes a bit like Christmas in a bottle, & # 39; added a third.
& # 39; I expected the worst, but hot damned Cinnamon Coke Zero actually tastes pretty good & # 39 ;, said another Twitter user.
The critics have meanwhile described it as & # 39; pump flavor with Christmas flavor & # 39 ;, & # 39; drinking a scented candle & # 39; and & # 39; as if someone has just stirred a spoonful of cinnamon in your cola & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I have to say that as a fan of all things cinnamon I am not a fan of this Coca Cola with cinnamon flavor … it just tastes like a bottle of cheap cola … there is no cinnamon in it, & # 39; wrote one.
