Shouldn't the article be called VAULT in all caps?

According to Coca-Cola's brand list on their site ( ), it's not all caps. Mhking 17:05, 14 December 2005 (UTC)


Everywhere I've seen them, 20 oz bottles of Vault are 2 for a dollar; half the cost of any other soft drink I know of. If the price of Vault is the same everywhere as it is here, it should be added to the article as it is a very notable characteristic of the product. Xyzyxx 21:58, 25 February 2006 (UTC)

That would have to get a lot more research before going out in the article. In Virginia, 20-ounce bottles of Vault are at or just slightly below the retail price of regular Coke. Lowest I've seen is 88¢, where regular Coke is $1.10. SchuminWeb (Talk) 23:20, 25 February 2006 (UTC)
This is most likely due to the fact that it's a new product. Soft drink companies ALWAYS do this, as a way to get consumers hooked on their new drink (and it worked on me :P). The Kids Aren't Alright 03:10, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
I paid $1.46 (including state sales tax) for a 20-ounce bottle of it last week. --Idont Havaname (Talk) 03:56, 26 February 2006 (UTC)
I just bought a 20 oz. today for 91 cents (after tax).--KrossTalk 22:47, 28 February 2006 (UTC)
I bought a 6-pack of 12 oz cans at Walmart the other day for $1.25, making it pennies an ounce. They sure will have me addicted. I need to go back and buy more. --Crypticgeek 05:09, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
My local Meijer is selling 20oz bottles for 50 cents apiece.--Bedford 11:16, 7 March 2006 (UTC)
Before tax, a 20oz. bottle of Vault cost US$1.10 at Publix, the same as a 20oz. bottle of Coke or any other soda.—thegreentrilby 00:41, 2 April 2006 (UTC)
Make that US$1.20. I forgot that 20oz. bottles had risen from 99¢ to $1.10 and, just recently, to $1.20.—thegreentrilby 13:16, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Those bastards! -Disavian 13:49, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Um, ok. Yeah, those idiots! No, I wasn't complaining, but you convinced me to.—thegreentrilby 19:04, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Glad I could help. -Disavian 20:14, 3 April 2006 (UTC)
Fight the power, man!—thegreentrilby 03:54, 4 April 2006 (UTC)
Incredible... I saw 20 oz bottles of VAULT Zero marked down to FIVE FOR A DOLLAR yesterday. What's going on? Xyzyxx 20:46, 29 April 2006 (UTC)
They must realize Vault Zero tastes like death. I doubt Vault Zero is selling very well, mainly due to who Vault is being markted towards. The Kids Aren't Alright 00:53, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

I got it for $1.58 at an Exxon station somewhere in America??? I took a pit stop but it ddint bother to ask wehere we were i think it was new york because therer were copies of the new yorr post around. too bad the dont sell the stuff in Canada

It cost $1.25 for a 20 oz bottle in a vending machine where I live. My100cans (talk) 18:45, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Please stay on topic[edit]

Please stay on topic on this discussion page. According to WP:NOT, "Please try to stay on the task of creating an encyclopedia."

Erythorbic Acid, Sodium Benzonate, and Concetrated O.J.[edit]

Recently, there have been reports published about benzene in soft drinks, especially those that are orange or citris flavored. The concering ingredianats are sodium benzoate, and ascorbic acid (Vitamin C). Valut conatains soduium benzoate and erythorbic acid, a stereoisomer of ascorbic acid. High amounts of Vitamin C are in orange juice of which concentrated orange juice is another key ingreediant in Vault. The combination of these ingrediants could create benzene, a very aggressive carcinogen even in small amounts!

Could the Coca-Cola Company be distributing a toxic soft drink? It is imperative for the FDA to be honest, something they have been far from lately. --Bushido Hacks 03:54, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Follow Up[edit]

As it turns out, this is not a significant health threat. Doing a little bit more research Vault is safe to drink. Benzene is in the air and food in trace ammounts. It is an inert molecule. Sorry for the panic. Blame TV news. --Bushido Hacks 04:26, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

Revert on the Vault article[edit]

The press release cited mentions a farmer, but that's about it as far as the article's claims and the pres release match. That's why I've reverted it now for the second time. Please don't re-add these passages unless you can substantiate more of the claims. SchuminWeb (Talk) 03:54, 14 May 2006 (UTC)

Hi Schumin- please take the time to go to the site and watch the video. In it you will see everything I've cited. Also, scroll to the bottom of the press release, and you'll see the text describing the farmer, the firebreathing scarecrow and the hippies.

It's important to note this, as it relates to the mood of the times, which should be captured in a historic record. The fact, and it is a fact, that Coke is willing to sell it's products by bashing the counterculture of the 60's, and the current protest against the war and the Bush Administration, is important and belongs in any encyclopedia worth it's salt, especially one that purports to be a project of the people.

Unfortunatley, I've been unable to find a verifiable text of the radio commercial, so I'll leave that off as per your regulations, and add it if I find a source.

Thanks- please e-mail me for further clarification, if need be. Shan

In this case, we have the wrong URL for that cite and need to fix it. SchuminWeb (Talk) 20:03, 17 May 2006 (UTC)

Hmm- both links are accurate for me- they link to the press release and the video. Not sure what to do here- thanks-Shan

I went ahead and fixed it, and also moved it into the article itself. SchuminWeb (Talk) 01:23, 18 May 2006 (UTC)


Is this in any way connected with the coca cola energy drink BPM? It has an, erm, "green" version - bottle coloured that way, tastes like Sprite with guarana+caffeine, basically, and description wise it matches this. I'm not sure if BPM exists outside of Ireland, but its significantly older that this - 2002 or 2003 I think. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kiand (talkcontribs) .


the part with the commercial is pointless, as wikipedia does not feature commercial information on every product. Perhaps we could add a part describing their marketing campaign, (drinking vault makes you do great things) Pacman 23:00, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Agreed. The detailing of the ad campaign is pointless, and I'm glad to see it go. SchuminWeb (Talk) 05:24, 6 June 2006 (UTC)


Why is there a link to That is a site centered around the soft drink surge and even though it has ties to, it is not relevant to the page.--Pacman 20:49, 26 June 2006 (UTC)

I agree with you on that point. While I admit that savesurge is how I found out about Vault, I agree it's irrelevant to Vault. SchuminWeb (Talk) 02:36, 27 June 2006 (UTC)
The link to Review the world is not relevant because it is not a proffessional website, it is an opinion site formed as a joke, and is not a real critical review. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Pacman5 (talkcontribs) .
Agreed. I think it should be removed. Thoughts? Don Don 17:01, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
I disagree. According to there is a good chance that Vault would not exist if not for their efforts. In the FAQ on the site it is stated that many of the members of "savesurge" feel that Vault is so similar in taste to surge that it is an acceptable replacement, and that this was the plan of the Coca Cola company. Saying that is not relevant to Vault is similar to saying that the write in campaign for Star Trek TOS was not relevant to it's 3rd season. (Please note I'm not directly comparing these two campaigns in their significance to history). 22:04, 16 March 2007 (UTC) AshleyL

Commercials should be put back in[edit]

When a product is basically defined by its memorable commercials and advertisements, they become an important part of the product's history.

Example 1: Red Stripe Beer. The page includes a paragraph relating to their recent advertisements and even a picture from one of their television commercials. We're talking about a drink that is 30 years old, and the advertisements are mentioned right along with appearances in TV shows, movies, songs, and books.

Example 2: Sprite (soft drink). Now we're talking about a drink that has been with us for over 40 years. And right in there is talk of its recent "Sublymonal" advertising.

Example 3: Budweiser (Anheuser-Busch). Mention of its radio advertisements, including a link to a complete list of all of them, plus "Bud" "Weis" "Er" and "Whassup" information. If it's part of what the product is, it's in there.

My point is that these are all obviously older, well-known drinks who still include advertising and commercials as part of their wikipedia entries. Vault is an extremely new drink (less than half a year in existence), and the only way people have heard about it has been through its commericals and advertising, mos popular of which are the inventive commercials. I remember when they played the full-length scarecrow one before a movie I was at a couple months ago, the entire audience clapped and cheered after the commercial.

What defines this new drink is its image, and what defines its image are inventive commercials involving people making backyards into football fields and scraps of metal into killer robots. I will be adding back in commercial information.--Tflynn17 16:45, 13 July 2006 (UTC)

I don't know, but as it was pretty odd I went ahead and removed it. --piper108 17:12, 25 February 2007 (UTC)

Energy Drink[edit]

What constitutes Vault as an energy drink? 21:42, 17 March 2007 (UTC)

Well, I'm sitting here drinking a bottle (of Vault Berry Blitz) right now. A quick look at it's ingredients listing shows two items that (at least in my book) make it qualify as an energy drink: caffeine and guarana extract. Now, before anyone cries foul, I know the guarana extract isn't in the green version. But all it needs is caffeine, which in itself, is a very powerful stimulant. SSaint04 23:42, 16 May 2007 (UTC)

Well then why isn't mountain dew an energy drink... it has caffeine in it. maybe we should put starbucks in the energy drink catagory too, while we're at it, lets just add anything and everything that gives you a little pep when you drink it. what about pure sugar does that count if I mix it with a drop of water, maybe that's all it takes to be considered a liquid. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:09, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Calm down, guy. The stuff was marketed as an "energy soda". (talk) 19:41, 22 March 2012 (UTC)

I updated the Expansion section[edit]

I updated the Expansion section of this article regarding the updated look of Vault (new labels are surfacing on cans and bottles in stores) and the unusual promotion Coke has with Mountain Dew as reported by the fan site

Please edit it as you see fit, thank you. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:40, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

Of course you remove the entire thing...great. Today out of three major chain stores only one had the original style Vault, surely this is worth putting in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:07, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

vault extinct?[edit]

well i woudn't call vault extinct right now because you can find this soft drink at white castle so yes, vault is not extinct —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wikidude36 (talkcontribs) 01:56, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Called Coca-Cola today inquiring about where I might find Vault Zero in my area, and the person I spoke with said that Vault Zero was discontinued a while back and the rest in the last couple months. —Wulf (talk) 21:46, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

Originally Vault was supported by Coke FreeStyle but not the Zero Extension. Now it seems Vault is not supported at all by FreeStyle. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:38, 18 March 2012 (UTC)
