this is when they stole willy wonkas secret formula

so the coca cola secret formula has said to be published feb 8 1978 in the atlanta journal constitution and has now come to light so is this a good thing? at first i was kinda excited to think about discovering what makes coca cola so good but while at the time when i had a fresh cup of cola in my hand the feeling of excitement subsided and what was left was the feeling of guilt and greed on my part, why cant i be happy with what i have in my hand? do i really need to know? well not really but since its all over the news you cant help but take notice but its okay coca cola was the first and i will always pick an original over a impersonation.
so here is a copy of the ingredients from that publish

Fluid extract of Coca 3 drams USP
Citric acid 3 oz
Caffeine 1 oz
Sugar 30 (quantity unclear from the markings)
