One of the biggest stories of the day has been the leakage of one of the world’s fiercely guided trade secrets- Merchandise X, the formula of coca-cola. While we do not have much details on this as of now, this is definitely going to be one of stories we would love to track!
, an American public radio show claims to have found the recipe kept in an Atlanta
steel vault. It is said, only two employees of the company at a time know how to mix. So much to protect the secrecy that these two never even fly together!!
The broadcasting organization, thisamericanlife claimed that it found the list of ingredients in a 40-year-old newspaper. Apparently the newspaper, named Atlanta Journal-Constitution, had published the photo of a book containing a handwritten replica of the original recipe on February 8, 1979.

Coca-cola ltd. is yet to respond to this but we will surely keep tracking the story for you. Till then, enjoy your coke 🙂
