Coca-Cola first launched the clear Coke in Japan in June, priced at 140 yen (around RM5) for a 500ml bottle and 115 yen (around RM4) for a 280ml bottle.

The drink was introduced to Singaporeans later that month.

What about Malaysia? Well, here's the good news: The see-through drink will be available early August at all FamilyMart outlets!

It will retail at a price of RM8.49 for a 500ml bottle. The beverage is part of the convenience store's "Summer Fun & Fresh" range of products.

Some netizens have pointed out that the drink is available in selected Jaya Grocer stores as well.

According to media reports, the idea for a clear Coke was conceived in Japan and the company's US headquarters spent a year developing it

The company had to do away with a caramel ingredient, which stripped the beverage of its signature brown-ish shade.

Kotaku revealed that over 50 samples were tested and Coca-Cola eventually settled on a zero calorie version of the fizzy drink with a splash of lemon.
