Coca-cola released New Coke in 1985 with so much fanfare you would think that Jesus himself thought of the thing. The original Coke insultingly became “coke classic” and the world of soft drinks was changed forever–or was it?
New Coke was so similar to the original Coke that it was worthless. It did taste a little sweeter, but it just wasn’t the revolutionary new favor that Coke claimed. It became a joke and in a few months nobody even cared anymore about it.
I remember trying it and never wanting to drink it again. I guess that goes to show you that just because something is new, it doesn’t make it any better.
