Yepp, this part.

Come on over to news.groups.proposals; I suspect we could
fast-track a bunch of comp.* groups.

: formula" version" :-)

Allow me to clarify that, having sorely lived through it...and having a dear friend who worked at one of the Baltimore bottling plants.

"New Coke" was Coke's move to conr syrup/frutcose and away from pure sugar as a cost cutting measure. It bombed (imo it didn't taste all that bad, but it was no original coke). Then came Coke Classic which was not sugar based, but rather a rehashing of the frutcose forumla to tast more like the original coke. It was close, but not quite the same.

That was what they tried to do when the copied Pepsi. Pepsi has changed thier forumla multiple times since pure sugar, although in little barely noticable increments, plus they don't advertise no one notices.

Then last year Pepsi did their Throwback campaign. Pepsi with real sugar (and nothing tasted sweeter). Coke, every Easter releases in limited supply "Passover Coke" or Kosher coke with real sugar since the jews consider corn syrup not kosher. That was the real "classic" coke. I've heard one can get Mexican coke, which is real sugar. But I wouldn't ever drink the water there for obvious reasons, so take that as you will. Plus, mexico sucks.

Interesting side story, recently I was talking to a coke distributor at my supermarket and asked why Coke didn't do a version of "throwback" since it's really popular among the pepsi drinkers. The guy scoffed at me and said something along the lines of Coke would never degrade themselves with stupid advertising campaigns (he must have been a Gen Y'er, not knowing about the Coke classic fiasco). I gave him a smirk and looked down at the empty pepsi section where the throwback stock was empty, while coke's section was barely touched. Scoffing in return, I nodded at the shelf differences and left him with a "whatev".
