      79 days later they returned the Coca-Cola Classic as the original formula. But personally I am pretty sure that some years after the case they swapped the cokes and the actual Classic, very very sweet., like the changed formula promised (New Coke is more sweet to taste more like Pepsi) is really the New Coke, and all of us drink old Cokes anywhere at regular cans an bottles. If you didn't drink a Classic, give it a try and then talk about it.

      I miss the Classic Coke that was made with beet sugar.

      Actual Coke formula in Brazil is with real sugar. Brazil is the biggest sugar producer in the world. No need for other sweetener. But a lot of sugar: 35 g (grams) for a 350 ml can.
