Not a fiasco; a shrewd move to put one over on consumers. Coke wanted to move to using high fructose corn syrup instead of real sugar. (With all the corn subsidies, HFCS is practically free, while real sugar is price-supported.)

However, they knew consumers would taste the difference. HFCS is kind of bitter. So, they released New Coke to wash the taste out of the mouths of everyone.

They were more than happy to act the fool, while substituting Coke Classic for Coke. They had to add "Classic" to the name because it's not the same product as Coke.

Fortunately, other countries don't have the masssive corn subsidies, so they continue to make actual Coke. A lot of U.S. stores offer hecho en Mexico Coke in glass bottles. It tastes like the Coke you remember from the days before HFCS started making everyone fat.

When I hear talk about these things getting done and a commitment to these things getting done then I will get excited.

New name, Chief Security Officer, Pro Team. Great? Maybe? I’m more interested in the hearing about the basics getting taken care of.
...and finish the waterfall on hole 18 of Blueberry.

Its beat in to basically a wasp and flies like a Buzzz with a little headwind. Fills the gap between buzzz and fresh buzzzOS

That's all well and good. It was the other part of the scenario I found odd.
