I don't speak French, but I'd bet the "nova" in "Nova Scotia" is the translation of "New." Perhaps that could be a bonus or something?

Coke was the market leader for a long time, but then in the 80s they started losing to Pepsi. Badly. They were desperate and decided to rebrand and reformulate and came out with a drink that was sweeter and tasted more like Pepsi - New Coke. They discontinued selling "old Coke" at the same time. People were very upset. After a period of protests and petitions and boycotts, they brought back "Coca-Cola Classic," which instantly went on to outsell Pepsi, and in the USA has ever since. After some time New Coke was discontinued. I don't think that this was their intention, but it turned out to be a pretty ingenious marketing strategy even if by accident.

Actually, New Coke does live on, in a sense. The formula for Diet Coke is based on New Coke. They swapped in artificial sweetener to match New Coke's sweetness. I was the first on my block to try it. Had a doctor appointment the day it was introduced and Mom took me to McD's for lunch after. Came back to English class and reported that I was not a fan at all.
+2
Level 82
Sep 5, 2020
really? Don't recall them tasting at all similar. And I always actually preferred Diet Coke to Coca Cola Classic in large part because I find regular Coke to be *too* sweet. Also too thick and syrupy. In addition to being 100+ calories per serving. Basically liquid candy.

When Coke president and COO Donald Keough was asked whether they had purposefully introduced New Coke to be a disaster in order to drive up sales of "Classic" Coke when they brought it back, he said "We're not that dumb, and we're not that smart."
+2
Level 71
Jul 7, 2023
The other "conspiracy" theory regarding New Coke's introduction was that when they went back to Coke Classic, it wasn't really the original, but a new formula based on high-fructose corn syrup rather than sugar (Coke from Mexico famously still uses sugar and is available in bottled form in some places in the U.S. to serve this preference).

This conversion was actually already underway and partially completed before New Coke's introduction, but was certainly completed when the old formula was introduced (according to Wikipedia), so there's some truth to it.

+2
Level 75
Sep 5, 2020
I was one of those strange people who liked New Coke better, but that makes sense because I always liked Pepsi better than Coke. Coca-cola always tasted like medicine to me except the ones sold in the little 8 oz. glass bottles - for some reason those didn't seem to taste as bad.
+2
Level 77
Jul 7, 2023
It wasn't that it was horrible, it's that it was different. As Kal says, Coke came out with it to compete with Pepsi, who at the time was advertising that Pepsi beat Coke in blind taste tests. The formulated New Coke to be more like Pepsi, and it beat both original Coke and Pepsi in blind taste tests, so they felt pretty confident it would be a success. However, people really didn't like that they used this new formula to completely replace the old one that everyone had grown up with for a century, so it bombed badly.

Level 71
Jul 7, 2023
Hm. I don't disagree with spelling it out, but... it's hard for me to imagine someone knowing that the New Deal was Franklin Roosevelt's signature policy, or really, anything about either one, without knowing the very common trigram FDR. I think maybe JFK is even more well-known, but only just.

To me, it's a less extreme version of asking "Hey, who is this 'El Greco' guy? Can't you just call him Domḗnikos Theotokópoulos like normal?"

But that's my perspective, it might be quite narrow, because I am an American and I don't really know how, or if, others around the world refer to FDR and his New Deal.
