The Pause That Refreshes|

The Coca-Cola brand is so strong that it survived the catastrophic decision to introduce "New Coke" in 1985, a Coke that tasted more like its rival Pepsi. Some internet conspiracies postulate that the whole New Coke was just a ploy to increase sales of what would later be rebranded as "Coca-Cola Classic".
From its early days as a medicinal tonic, to the constant marketing of the brand and the creation of Coca-Cola collectibles, Coke has always established itself as the "baseball card of soda". Every year we wait for the newest marketing, the newest ads, the newest gimmick. And I did not even go into the soda phenomenon known as "Tab".
