I bought a can or 2 of the new coke when it came out. It was certainly different but for the life of me i cant describe the taste. I do know that i switched back to the (soon to be named) "classic" recipe soon after.

Other way around actually. Diet Coke came out before New Coke. To make New Coke they took the Diet Coke formula and changes the sweetener to high fructose corn syrup and tweaked it a little.

The thing I found so interesting about the New Coke blunder is that putting the two (New and Classic) side by side in a bilnd taste test people overwhelmingly picked New Coke. Coke took that data and changed the formula. It never occurred to them that people might have liked "New" better but didnt want "New" instead of "Classic".

I never tried the new coke, but I remember exactly what Crystal Pepsi tasted like. I loved the stuff!

Funny how those of us who tried it almost 30 years ago can still remember & describe it. I doubt many of us drank much of it then, either!
Very true! I remember switching to Like cola in the 80's...hated that new formula.

Now I prefer Coke Zero!

Very common in Asia. But now Pepsi has the Crystal Pepsi there.

I was a freshman in high school when the "new" Coca Cola was introduced. It tasted flat compared to the original formula. I prefer the Coca Cola imported from Mexico. It is sweetened with cane sugar instead of corn syrup.

I tried it at the time (out of curiosity), was a teenager then.
Don't recall what it tasted like, but knew that I didn't like it, it wasn't the "Coke" with which I was familiar.
Never bought it on purpose after the one time, that's for sure.
