What the hell did New Coke taste like? Was it really as bad as the reputation suggests?

I was born in 1989, and so I completely missed that train of disaster, but seeing as I don't exactly like Coca Cola, I probably would have preferred New Coke.

Someone who knows should throw some learnin' at this topic.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

It tasted like bad marketing, from what I've heard.

It just has an ashy/ metallic taste imo.

I don't think it was terrible, but more like the taste of ashy scotch and coke without the scotch.

New Coke USA only? No idea, but I'm guessing no.

In Australia we got Coke "Life" which came in olive/ money green cans/ packaging, that's the one I'm talking about.

The ultimate off-topic eh? Does this mean we throw whatever shit hits the fan and see what develops?  ;D

Never tried New Coke. Kinda passed that one though not by choice. I was young then... Although I do like Cherry Cola alongside with the original Coca Cola. I don't ever have the diet stuff. That shit's got aspartame and that stuff's toxic to the human body. My bro can't have any Aspartame without getting a severe headache. Coke Zero (if I'm not mistaken) also contains Aspartame. I don't touch that stuff either.

Oh, man.

This.

Coke. It's like... to me, it's the damn greatest drink in the world. Like, seriously. There is nothing more soothing than drinking an ice cold coke. I'm not the biggest fan of Pepsi, and I can only drink it if it's ice ICE cold, but ugh. That syrup-y feel of Pepsi is just nasty to me.

I'm a soda addict. I won't lie about that. I can pretty much tell soda apart just from the smell of it. I'm at the point where I can even tell the difference between generic sodas (i.e. Shasta, Big K, Vibe, Fiesta, etc.). I have a problem.

That being said, though. I'm also curious as to what New Coke was like.

Even Coca-Cola uses a syrup recipe. But it does taste better then Pepsi. I'll drink Pepsi if there's nothing else, but I'm a Coke guy through & through.

Here's the jest of the Coca-Cola recipe changes throughout the years;

Never remember New Coke...I grew up drinking generic soda. Ugh. Speaking of generics, Rocky Top was okay, so long as it wasn't the cola flavor. Generic cola is the worst, no matter what brand. Except Wolf Cola.  ;D

I do remember Crystal Pepsi, though. It wasn't bad, just weird. Not sure if it tasted different, or if the (lack of) color made it just seem different. At least it was better than Pepsi Blue. Yuck.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.
