Surge Available at Burger King Coke Freestyle Machines 2

Coca-Cola’s Surge has popped up again at Burger King, but this time as an exclusive flavor in the chain’s Coke Freestyle Machines.

Again, you say?

Yes, the first time it came in frozen form. It’s unclear if that’s back on the menu. But if it is, accompanying it might be a “Frosted” version that includes soft serve, since Burger King has done a number of “Frosted” soft drink this year.
