Remember 1985? That was the year Coca-Cola fans like myself were upset that the company decided to change their formula to make it sweeter.
But, I liked Coke the way it was.
Coca-Cola thought I would like the new recipe even better. I didn't. I hated it. So many people were in an uproar over this that Coca-Cola was forced to do an about face and bring back the original formula, then called "Coca-Cola Classic", while keeping the "New Coke" brand out there for those who enjoyed it. Somebody in their marketing department was embarrassed over the public relations nightmare.
24 years later, Coca Cola has brought "New Coke" back! Oh no, not again!
Relax...you can get their 1985 formula and all sorts of apparel as part of their "Stranger Things" campaign. But it's only for a limited time only, so go to https://www.cokestore.com and relive 1985 again, whether you loved or hated the idea. Either way, it got people talking!
