    Ahhh, one ingredient is the top secret 7x, which are basically the flavorings. These are pre-mixed by one of the authorized people. Then 7x is mixed in with the rest of the ingredients in the production line.

    According to the Atlanta Journal this might have been a precursor formula because it contained alcohol and cocaine extract, neither of which are used today.

    I most wholeheartedly agree. Blech. I've never understood the appeal of cola/soda/pop. It's always tasted so awful to me, and bizzare, and not thirst quenching at all.

    That being said, secrets are fun!!!

    It's more likely a marketing tactic. Make people think it's a secret and they buy into it. I'm sure the recipe isn't know by the whole company, but I'm guessing that more than two people know it!

    I like the idea that only two people know it and they can't be on the same aircraft just in case - - just like president and vice president lol -- coke is gone forever.

    i wonder which would be more crushing to society -- to lose your president and vice president or there being no more coke
