DailyDirt: I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The Cola Wars have been over for a long time. As usual in war, there are no real winners -- just a lot of wasted spending. Now that we're giving peace a chance, here are just a few lingering concerns over these dark-colored soft drinks. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    HFCS was introduced by Coke in 1975 - ten years before New coke.

    From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola

    Since 1980 in the U.S., Coke has been made with high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) as an ingredient. Originally it was used in combination with more expensive cane-sugar, but by late 1984 the formulation was sweetened entirely with HFCS.

    except Coca-cola claims that its formula remained the same for 125 years... until new Coke. not sure when they admit to using HFCS?

    You can't debunk conspiracy theories.

    Or rather, you can, as has been done with this one many times, but the conspiracists will ignore you.
