Soda flavors

So here's something that's been puzzling me: Most popular soda flavors are based on popular foods: cherries, grapes, oranges, ginger, vanilla-cream, etc. But the most popular soda flavor of all is cola, which has absolutely no other place in our culture's food world -- in fact, most of us wouldn't know a cola nut if one dropped into our laps.

Does this strike anyone else as odd? Given how popular cola sodas are, how come cola itself hasn't found its way to our collective table in other ways?
