As we say hello and goodbye to the Bard, we might recall that it was on this date in 1985 that the Coca Cola Company introduced New Coke– a reformulation of the storied soft drink that was an epic fail…  that is, until the old formula was reintroduced months later and sales rose to all-time highs, leading some to speculate that New Coke wasn’t a terrible marketing blunder, but a devilishly-clever marketing ploy…

 “smoother, uh, uh, rounder yet, uh, yet bolder… a more harmonious flavor” – Roberto Goizueta, Coca Cola President (source)
