Soda Jerks

A few weeks ago I made reference to "New Coke" in one of my classes, and was greeted with a sea of blank stares. It was then that I realized that the substitute soda came and went so long ago now that there's whole generations that have no awareness of the national nightmare that ensued when Coca-Cola Comparny decided to slightly sweeten its formula. As it happens, a few days ago marked thirty years since the auspicious occasion of New Coke's introduction, and Vox has the blow-by-blow of what led up to (and out of) it.
