OTD April 23 - New Coke
10 / 41
Coca-Cola

1985: Coca-Cola changes its formula and releases New Coke. After overwhelmingly negative response, the original formula was back on the market in less than three months. The new product continued to be sold and retained the name Coca-Cola (until 1992, when it was officially renamed Coca-Cola II), so the old product was named Coca-Cola Classic. New Coke was discontinued entirely in 2002.
