Re: Is it possible that in going from 8 to 10 they've skipped the decent release?
"I hope you do know that the replacement for New Coke was not, not at all, Classic Coke."
"Coca-Cola" was replaced by ""the new taste of Coke" aka New Coke.
The replacement for New Coke was "Coca-Cola Classic" which was simply renamed to Coke in 2009.
"Coca-Cola Classic" has High-Fructose Corn Syrup [apart from "Kosher for Passover" Coke], Old Coke had cane sugar, so no, the Coke sold after New Coke was not the same Coke as before New Coke.
"Mexican Coke" as sold in the U.S. may have cane sugar or HFCS.
