Whip up a batch of your own Coke

No, this isn't about drugs. It's about a bigger business than that...soft drinks. (Or as they say here in England, fizzy drinks.)

According to an article in the Guardian, two women have come up with their own recipe for Coca Cola. There's even a recipe there for you to follow.

But the part I really like is this paragraph here:
The mega corporation remains unfazed. "As the saying goes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery," says a Coca-Cola spokesman. "But our product is unique. Anyone with a selection of ingredients could make a type of cola, but there can only be one Coke."

Maybe so, but Coke tastes differently depending upon where it was made. (At least Diet Coke does. For example, German Diet Coke has a much different taste from English Diet Coke.) I think it probably has to do with the sweeteners.
