New Coke is coming back

NEW YORK (AP) – Coca-Cola is trying to dredge up memories of a product it has been trying to live down for the past three decades. The company is reviving New Coke. And if you think that’s a strange thing, you’re right. That’s because the failed beverage is being revived in partnership with “Stranger Things.” The Netflix drama’s third season will take place in the summer of 1985, when Coca-Cola made one of the biggest product gaffes ever by tinkering with its formula for Coke. The new version went flat with soda drinkers and was dropped within three months. As part of the revival, workers had to dig up the New Coke recipe from company vaults – and churn out the logo and different color for the cans from more than 30 years ago.
