coca cola’s recipe – leaked
today on air with kenny jones – we learned that on of the most coveted corporate secrets in the world has been unleashed on the public. no, not who was on the grassy knoll when jfk was shot, it’s not the truth behind bigfoot nor is it whether or not the moon landing was a hoax…
the world now knows the secret ingredients in coca cola!
since its creation in 1886, the coca-cola formula is one of the most fiercely guarded trade secrets of the corporate world. many claimed to have found it, but the mystery of something called “merchandise 7x” has been the real mystery. this is the name given to the combination of secret ingredients which gives the soft drink its distinctive taste. and that is the only ingredient that eludes the public now.
a public radio show from the states claims to have found the recipe kept in an steel vault in atlanta, georgia. it’s been said, only two employees at a time know how to mix the secret ingredient and the two never fly together (if something happens to both of ‘em – bye bye coca cola).
apparently a magazine published the photo of a book containing a handwritten replica of the original recipe on february 8, 1979. the drink was created by pharmacist john pemberton in 1886. the ‘secret’ recipe of coke is about to be uncorked again right here on this blog.

is it the “real thing” – are we gonna “catch the wave” – will this “add life” – can we “twist the cap” on our own refreshment – do ya think we’ll be able to “enjoy” our own coke now? fine – i’ll stop with the slogans.
they radio station said that people were unable to taste the difference between the beverage bottled by the company and their own concoction. however, real “coke enthusiasts” were not fooled by the phony stuff.
