    A friend who is a serious Coke aficionado/addict claims that “New Coke” was simply a ploy. When they returned to the supposed “original formula” they had replaced the cane sugar with a less expensive alternative. While that change would have been noticed by most consumers had it been implemented directly, very few noticed it after the absence of the original for those months.
