This was when real sugar went into Coca-Cola, not high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS).
Real sugar is used in Coca-Cola that's imported from Mexico.

Back then it wasn't as bad for you. It was a small bottle and used real sugar instead of all this fake, unhealthy, cheap crap they use today. So really, if Coke was still manufactured for the purpose of providing energy with a very modest portion, then this commercial wouldn't be "lying"

Lots of people here saying - Back when coke had cocaine in it - They stopped using cocaine in coke in the 1920s in the 50s all it had was the original recipe with cane sugar.

People also didn't drink a 6 pack of those every day either.  One a day, back in those days, was not going to cause too many issues.  Back then people also ate home-made meals and fast food wasn't on every street corner.  Processed food as we know it today was not a majority of people's food intake.

I laughed when she said that Coke gives a burst of energy between meals after she went on about how healthy it is for you. XD
