Hi all - the 20th Anniversary of the introduction of New Coke is coming up later this month. I'm just finishing up a huge feature story for Soda Pop Dreams Magazine... just wondering if anyone has any thoughts about it that'd like to share with me?

Does anyone know if Coke II is still available in Chicago - I had heard that it was recently (finally) discontinued. Can anyone confirm?

If anyone is interested in the New Coke commemorative edition, it's up on eBay for bids. Thanks!

The story is from coke's 1800 number. It was discontinued in 2002.

not available in chicago anymore.. been gone for a while unfortunately..

i used to buy 24packs before i was into collecting and reading about beverages as a hobby... one day, they just disappeared :(

coke should re-release it at some point, that would rock.

fusion can you confirm sale of Coke II or is it just a item on a product list that has not been removed so you figure it is avilable?

Has anyone heard if The Coca-Cola Company is doing anything to celebrate their New Coke 20th Anniversary? They did celebrate the 10th milestone... just curious.

Thanks!

I remember someone confirming that they do still sell it.. I believe this was about a year ago.

Anyone who is interested in picking up a copy of the New Coke edition of Soda Pop Dreams, it's available on eBay (do a search for New Coke 1985) or you can purchase it directly from our website at sodapopdreams.org.

Thanks,
Blair.

Has anyone seen any stories about the New Coke 20th Anniversary in their local (or national) newspapers? Just curious if it got much mainstream coverage.

By the way, can you describe me how does it taste new Coke or Coke II, I'm very curious about it.
