    it just seems unnecessary. everyone KNOWS that it's old coke now (well, for the most part). it just seems like a reminder of the "new" coke debacle. why not move on?

    from what I remember it had to do with a patent or a copyright something of that nature. I would think that after 20 years though they would drop the classic.

    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    yeah...

    or maybe because the "new" coke thing was such a disaster... they don't want to even think about changing the name. LOL.

    The use of the word "Classic" was used to reassure millions of Coke drinkers across the world that the MotherShip of all soft drinks would never,ever again be reformulated.

    Classic by definition: Serving as the established model or standard:

    A classic does not change, a classic is in itself is a pure form of all objects in it's subgroup.

    I highly doubt that Classic Coke will ever change from what it was in the past and what it is today.

    Classic Coke is the gold standard for the carbonated soda pop industry....Royalty.

    To differentiate (sp) it from all the brand extensions probably.

    they should remove the word classic, nobody even calls it Coca-Cola classic anyway. some things Coke is afraid to change, some things they change too soon.

    Well, they did switch from sugar to HFCS.

    But, "Classic" is probably not needed in areas without Coke II.
    Life is too short to drink crummy sodas...

    To my knowledge, Coke II is basically kaput.

    do they still sell coke 2? LOL.

    i remember seeing it once or twice when i lived in ohio... many years ago. i figured it was "new" coke at the time, but wasn't sure.

    but, basically, i think they keep the "classic" because they're afraid to change it... afraid people will get confused and think, "oh no! new coke is back!"

    of course, they could always just keep making the "classic" a smaller and smaller font... until, finally, it disappears! LOL.
