Twenty years ago today, Coca Cola gave in and unveiled its plans to bring “Classic Coke” back to the market. I remember that period of time when there was only “New Coke.” Coca Cola zombies in my school were quivering at their desks from withdrawal (luckily, I had a Mountain Dew addiction to fall back on). People were scouring the convenience stores for that Holy Grail of old recipe Coca-Cola. Grocery shoppers were bitching about their funny tasting Coke. And one curious scientific mind was testing out the blast radius of this New Coke after its aluminum shell had been compromised via homemade explosives [warning: don’t try this at home… don’t try this at all].
