    IS IT COKE?

    An 84-year-old retired beverage distributor claimed recently that

    he had the original Coca-Cola formula for almost 40 years.

    Lee Williams wrote in to Dallas Morning News columnist Marylin

    Schwartz, after she had written about the new Coke in her column.

    Williams said he had been given the formula in 1948, when he had a

    sales route for the Dr. Pepper Company.

    A pharmacist named John Reed told him that he used to make his

    own syrup for the cola because he had been given the original

    recipe. Reed said he had gotten it from an ingredient

    salesman who wanted to sell him the ingredients for the syrup.

    He then pulled the formula from a file marked "1898" and let

    Williams make a copy of it.

    If it's true, this is your big chance to make up a batch of "The

    Real Thing" yourself. Here's the recipe:

    30 pounds of sugar

    2 gallons of water

    2 pints of lime juice

    4 ounces of citrate of caffeine

    2 ounces of citric acid

    1 ounce of extract of vanilla

    6 drams (3/4 ounce) of fluid extract of cola

    Don't forget to mix it with carbonated water before you drink it,

    like the fountain drink. If you try it, let us know how it comes

    out. Warning: Drink at your own risk.

    (If they haven't proved that any of these ingredients causes

    cancer yet, I'm sure it's just a matter of time.)

    According to the Coca-Cola Company, the formula has never been

    given out. But who knows? this could be the biggest leak

    ever...
