Default New Coke & 2300

Back in the early days of the internet, someone put up a website (now lost) which amongst other things had 'urban legends' for the 2300AD setting written up as plot hooks. The only two I remember were, first, someone building a spacecraft to fly out far enough to record old (pre-Twilight) TV broadcasts and second the claim that a certain cola company had inadvertently retrieved the wrong formula from the ruins of Atlanta and so what people are drinking under a particular brand name is actually the infamous 'New' version (Which according to rumor tasted a hell of a lot like another well known brand of cola.)

It seems that Coke has decided to revive the product in a (sadly) limited edition release as part of a promo with Netflix.

The link to the official story is below.

The reason I bring this up is I've always felt it would have been a great way to emphasize that this is the future and there is a memorable discontinuity (The Twilight War) in that futures past to players by offering up the closest I could come up with (eg Pepsi in Coke bottles...) as refreshments during a game.

I never had the courage to try it, but I think the idea is worth sharing.
