Coca-Cola displays secret formula

2011-12-08 22:46

Atlanta - The Coca-Cola Company has moved its secret formula for the first time in 86 years, taking it from a bank vault to a new repository on exhibit at its down town Atlanta museum.

The world's largest beverage maker says the new vault containing the formula will be on display for visitors to its World of Coca-Cola museum. However, the 1886 formula itself will remain hidden from view.

Atlanta-based Coca-Cola says the decision to move the formula from a vault at SunTrust Banks had nothing to with the bank's decision in 2007 to sell its long-held stake in Coca-Cola.

      I don't understand what they are saying.They say it will be on view but the formula will be hidden from view?So the paper will be on view but no-one will be able to read it?It's like saying, look at the book but not the contents?

    So we still won't know whether it contains coke.

      It still does. Coca-Cola is the only company based in America that is legally allowed to import the Coca plant, from which cocaine is derived.

    This is pretty awesome and I can see many, many people attempting to break open the vault to figure out the recipe. Only two Coke executives know the exact process from start to finish. In fact, it's such an important secret that those executives are never allowed to be in the same room, toilet, car or even airplane, lest they both miraculously die simultaneously and the company is left without the code to open the safe.
