.In 2004, perhaps in response to the burgeoning popularity of low-carbohydrate diets such as the Atkins Diet, Coca-Cola announced its intention to develop and sell a low-carbohydrate alternative to Coke Classic, dubbed C2 Cola.^ Coke mans Coca~Cola.

^ When Coke returned with Classic Coca Cola, profits rebounded in a hurry.

^ The other thing going on here is Coke has had two logos at the same time since the 1980s: "Coca-Cola" and "Coke".

C2 contains a mix of high fructose corn syrup, aspartame, sucralose, and Acesulfame potassium. .C2 is designed to more closely emulate the taste of Coca-Cola Classic.^ I like more Coca-cola.

^ The case can be made that Coca-Cola's font has stayed more consistent than Pepsi's, but the evolution certainly isn't as exaggerated as the viral jpeg suggests.

^ Coke still outsold Pepsi, but Coca Cola panicked and responded with New Coke, a sweeter version of Coca Cola that tasted like a Coke-Pepsi hybrid.

.Even with less than half of the food energy and carbohydrates of standard soft drinks, C2 is not a replacement for zero-calorie soft drinks such as Diet Coke.^ Coca-Cola is trying to get consumers thinking that its flagship soft drink has a twin in its sugar-free version, Coca-Cola Zero.
  • Coca-Cola Co. | Company News & Executive Profiles - KO | BNET 10 February 2010 13:34 UTC resources.bnet.com [Source type: News]

.Coca-Cola is the best-selling soft drink in most countries.^ I have always loved Coca cola's logo (and the drink) but I knew that it can't be the case that they haven't changed their logo for that long.

^ The only problem with the revised chart is that most of those aren't the "official logo" of Coca-Cola.

^ Considering that Pepsi cola (the drink) is second, I think management was smart to diversify into related areas so that Pepsi (the company) can be on par with the soft drink leader.

.While the Middle East is one of the only regions in the world where Coca-Cola is not the number one soda drink, Coca-Cola nonetheless holds almost 25% marketshare (to Pepsi's 75%) and had double-digit growth in 2003.[25] Similarly, in Scotland, where the locally produced Irn-Bru was once more popular, 2005 figures show that both Coca-Cola and Diet Coke now outsell Irn-Bru.^ Pepsi is not Coca-Cola, and vice versa.

^ The 2003 Coca-Cola logo is missing.

^ Pepsi logo is more cooler than Coca-cola.

[26] .In Peru, the native Inca Kola has been more popular than Coca-Cola, which prompted Coca-Cola to enter in negotiations with the soft drink's company and buy 50% of its stakes.^ Furthermore, the Swire Beverage CSR team needed to balance the interests of important stakeholders such as the Coca-Cola company, and corporate parent John Swire and Sons.
