The website This American Life claims to have uncovered one of the great secrets of our day: The closely guarded recipe for Coca-Cola.
"The formula for Coca-Cola is one of the most jealously guarded trade secrets in the world," the site writes. "Locked in a vault in Atlanta. Supposedly unreplicable. But we think we may have found the original recipe. And to see if the formula actually might be Coke, we made a batch. Or, anyway, we asked the folks at Jones Soda and Sovereign Flavors to whip up some up, to see if it tastes like Coke."
