New Coke Debut 1985 This is a 1985 CBC report on the introduction of the less-than-beloved New Coke. I'm cynical enough to believe this whole New Coke business was a carefully orchestrated plot. Coca-Cola got millions of dollars of free advertising out of their self-made controversy.

I remember how livid many Coca-Cola fans were in 1985. There was an op-ed piece in a Tornto newspaper that said something along these lines when it was announced the the old variety of Coke would no longer be manufactured:

'Name any other product in the world--legal or illegal--that cannot be obtained. Unfiltered cigarettes? Tough to get, but you can find them if you look hard enough. Heroin or cocaine? Outlawed but still easily accessible. Only Coca-Cola in its traditional form will the public be deprived from acquiring.'

what a disaster this product was. When I drank my first 'new' coke, it tasted almost identical to Pepsi. Thank goodness coke came to their senses and went back to the old coke...

the saying goes, If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!!
