    The New Coke is actually New New Coke, from Coca-Cola's recent Stranger Things promotion. But it is legit New Coke inside, controversial flavour recreated.

    New Coke tasted like Pepsi to me back then. I wonder if anybody saved the original Cokes with cocaine in them, they must be worth a mint now?

    I miss orange Crush in the bottles. Acidic drinks in cans can taste metallic, in plastic bottles they can taste like plastic, glass was pretty much inert.

    You can thank the "Pepsi Challenge" promotion for New Coke. The TL;DR is that if you give human beings just a single sip of two random liquids they fairly reliably will pick the sweeter one as "better", so even people that would probably prefer to drink a full can of Coke will prefer a single sip of Pepsi. The Coca-Cola Company nonetheless freaked out at continually losing the challenge and, well, wackiness ensued.

    I also thought it tasted similar to Pepsi. However, my dad said it tasted like RC to him, and I read somewhere else that they likened it to the taste of Diet Coke but with sugar, which makes sense given the history of the beverage.

    I actually rather like it, but an effective price of $10 a can (at the current rate of buying those ST gift packs) deters me from indulging further, and overall I still prefer Mexi-Coke.

    I stopped drinking Coke (and all pop) in the late 90's when I stated noticing a horrible tangy aftertaste. I don't know if it's the high-fructose corn syrup or some other ingredient cheapening, but I just know it really started to taste bad. I still have memories of how things used to taste. I never thought I'd have to look longingly back to a time when they used real sugar, real flavours and glass bottles. I still have good memories of Orange Crush, Lime Ricky, Black Cherry, Cream Soda, Root Beer (made with actual roots), and the original Mountain Dew (before it tasted like lemon-flavoured pig vomit).

    Oh, what a time to live in.

    Storage shed outside. Fortunately, everything seems to fare well. It's a clean and pretty new shed, mice can't get into it, etc. I try to make sure all magnetic media is stored inside, though I have missed a few things I've found...not sure how sensitive they really are to heat and cold.

    Bedroom, garage, and some crappola in an old mini van. As soon as I have a yard sale the bedroom is getting emptied out because there will be more room in the garage at that point. I can't tolerate clutter anymore. Oh how could I forget, the sunroom had a pile of stuff also. Oi vay.

    Shed, conservatory, bedroom, lounge, kitchen or where ever I can put it.
