The Coca-Cola formula is the Coca-Cola company's top-secret recipe for Coca-Cola. The formula is considered one of the most closely-held trade secrets in modern business, as only a few Coca-Cola employees know or have access to the formula.Published accounts say it contains or once contained sugar, caramel caffiene, phosphoric acid, coca leaf and kola nut extract, lime extract, flavoring mixture, vanilla and glycerin. Merchandise 7X is the "secret ingredient" in Coca-Cola and has remained a secret since its invention in 1886. The description of the ingredient is kept in a security vault in a bank in Atlanta, Georgia. Alleged syrup recipes vary greatly, and Coca-Cola reluctantly admits the formula has changed over the decades. In a much-publicized corporate disaster, Coca-Cola introduced new Coke in 1985. After public outcry, the recipe was restored to the original formula.
Recipes for other soft drinks and products—Pepsi, KFC chicken and McDonalds Special sauce—are also closely-guarded trade secrets, but the Coke formula certainly attracts the most attention.
Amateur sleuths have tried to reverse engineer the production process and ingredients. The secret formula is the subject of books, speculation and marketing lore. The company consistently claims that all published recipes are incorrect.

Heres some facts about Coca cola

It used to be green
The franchise changed Santa red (yes, he used to be green!)
It once used to contain cocaine!
Coca-Cola's cursive script logo was designed to reveal anti-Islamic messages in its mirror image. (OMG)This is very funny

This poster was released in the mid 80s and prompted a total recall of all posters because of the picture painted in ice-cubes at bottom right corner - a woman performing an act. The graphic artist who designed the picture put this in as a joke, and it went through unnoticed until someone spotted it on the back of a Coke truck. The artist lost his job and was sued, and all promotional material had to be recalled and destroyed.
LoL!

:eek: Used to have cocaine in? So that's why cocaine is sometimes called Coke. :p

Actually, santa was made red by Coca Cola, but he didn't used to be green. He used to appear in all sorts of different colours.

I didn't know Coca Cola used to be green, or that Coca-Cola's cursive script logo was designed to reveal anti-Islamic messages in its mirror image. :vlol:

I heard about a similar thing with the artist. An animated Disney film (can't remember which one) contained a picture of a nude lady standing in a window for one frame, and when someone spotted it the animater was, of course, fired. :p
