Something terrific happened in 1886. That was the year when Coca-Cola was introduced to the world.
Believe it or not, Coca-Cola used to contain Cocaine. That may be why it's called Coke.
At the time, people were unaware how bad Cocaine is.
After we discovered the truth about Cocaine, the Coca-Cola Company stopped using Cocaine and started using Caffeine in Cokes.
For many years, Coke ruled. But that temporarily changed in 1985.
Coca-Cola changed their formula and started calling the product "New Coke".The first batch of new Coke's were terrible. I drank one and it tasted like crap. Diet Coke tasted better.
I heard that Coca-Cola was going to improve the New Coke and two months later, I took a gamble.
After hearing that the New Coke's taste was improved, I bought a 2 liter New Coke. It tasted much better than the first one I drank.
When the New Coke (Also known as Coke II) was introduced, the head of Pepsi made fun of coke. They said that they had secretly changed Pepsi's formula from time to time.
But he said that they weren't dumb enough to put the word "New" on the Pepsi cans/bottles.
A few months after New Coke was created, Coca-Cola started back making the original Coke.
I read that the New Coke was discontinued in 1992.
