Coffee is my energy drink of choice.

What “original” do they mean?



I was looking at my can of Coke today and I realized that it proudly proclaimed that it’s “original formula”. I got to thinking, “What exactly do they mean by  original?” Obviously not the actual original, as cocaine-laced soft drinks are generally considered by law enforcement to be illegal narcotics. Also, they probably don’t mean the classic formula used in the golden era of the 1950’s, when Coca-Cola in this country was still made with cane sugar.

So it seems that when Coke says “original formula”, they mean the post “New Coke” original formula, made with cheap high fructose corn syrup and distributed in cans and plastic bottles. Seems rather misleading to me.
