Beverage Concept: Coca Cola Coconut Flavored Drink

Hi All,

This flash of an idea came to me when I was listening to "Very Best of Harry Belafonte's" by RCA records on CD. One of his songs is titled "Coconut Woman". My creative mind got ahold of that and this is what popped forth.

What if Coca Cola (Coke brand) or some other cola soda pop company created a coconut flavored beverage. Doing so they can license Harry Belafonte's song "Coconut Woman" as its marketing blitz. Since many beverages nowadays go for the gimmick of injecting nutrients into their drinks to give them an added healthy boost. They can supplement the drink with fortified "Iron" just like in the Coconut Woman song.

Here are the lyrics to "Coconut Woman" sung by Harry Belafonte:

Coconut woman is calling out. And everyday you can hear her shout. Coconut woman is calling out. And everyday you can hear her shout. Get your coconut water, four for five. Man it's good for your daughter, four for five. Coco got a lotta iron, four for five. Make you strong like a lion, four for five.

A lady tell me the other day. No one can take her sweet man away. I ask her what was the mystery. She say coconut water and rice curry. You can cook it in a pot, four for five. You can serve it very hot, four for five. Coco got a lotta iron, four for five. Make you strong like a lion, four for five.

Coconut woman says you'll agree coconut make very nice candy. The thing that's best if you're feelin' glum. Is coconut water with a little rum. It could make you very tipsy, four for five. Make you feel like a gypsy, four for five. Coco got a lotta iron, four for five. Make you strong like a lion, four for five.

This once noticed is a no-brainer for a Calypso like marketing commerical for a cola company to launch.
