This American Life Reveals Coca-Cola Recipe
Actually, This American Life publishes two versions of the confidential Coca-Cola concoction: one taken from a photograph in an Atlanta Journal-Constitution article from 1979 and another, republished from a 1992 book about the cola industry, that purports to be the original recipe written in the notebook of the 19th-century chemist who created Coca-Cola.
The recipe is essentially split into two parts. One features water, sugar, caramel, vanilla and lime juice. The other, called "7x Flavor," is a combination of alcohol, orange oil, lemon oil, nutmeg oil, coriander oil, neroli oil and cinnamon oil.
I hope there is a sequel in which we learn the recipe of New Coke.
