Super Secret Recipe: Coca-Cola

Listened to my favorite podcast this morning, "This American Life" where Act 1 entitled, "Message in a Bottle" reveals the super secret recipe of Coca-Cola.

Episode description:
The formula for Coca-Cola is one of the most jealously guarded trade secrets in the world. So we were surprised to come across a 1979 newspaper article with what looked like the original recipe for Coke.

So, is it? Find out for yourself. Listen to the podcast and try to make the recipe if you dare ...

*Be aware the recipe calls for 30 pounds of sugar, yes, 30 pounds and 4 ounces of FE Coco (which is Fluid Extract of Coca and contains a small amount of cocaine). And no, I'm not kidding.
