Do you think that a sealed 30 year old Coca-cola is still good to drink?
Forget about it. Even a coca cola bottled and put on shelve today isn't fit to drink. Opt for pure juice instead, please.
It probably won't kill you, but sealed or not, I bet that soda will be flat as hell after all this time.
Forget drinking it--hold onto it for a few more years--the bottle WITH contents could be worth something on the collectibles market!
Actually this bottle is probably already worth something on the collectibles market, because this particular bottle pictured here is a commemorative bottle from when the Baltimore Orioles won the world series in 1983. I just don't know how much.
I too have kept a few of the old Coca-cola bottle drinks as collection. But the level of the Coca-cola seems to be less from the original state. Somehow it is evaporating like my collection of liquors.
I like to know if it is still tasty after so many years. But I can tell that it is no longer gases.
Soft drinks are filled with caffeine and sugar, and nutrition experts urge consumers to drink water. I too would save it as a relic. It sure would lose its flavor after thirty years, in my opinion. You couldn't pay me to drink it.
Thirty years ago Coca-Cola still had saccharin as sweetener. I am not sure of its present sweetener. Saccharin is carcinogenic as the by-product of its production contains toluene that is carcinogenic. I read that this softdrink is banned in 17 states of USA.
You've got two choices (or maybe three):
1. Take it to a museum;
2. Open it and use the Coke to clean up your jewellery (get a shallow dish, pour Coke - not to the brim - leave items 24 hours and check for brightness, then leave a bit longer for extra shine if needed. Warning: if you want to take your jewellery for auction take advice from an auctioneer about removal of 'patina'. Old jewellery with 'patina' might fetch more bidding);
3. Shake vigorously, open and aim at someone who gets on your 'wick' (nerves).
If it just fizzles up the spout and doesn't cannon out at them then at least you haven't got a court case coming up.
I've gone off Coke for the reason stated (in 2). If you want to go to your maker with your 'tubes' sparking, then drink it.
It has so many preservatives and junk in it, it will probably by just slightly flat. But I'd safe it for the museum value. Especially since it's a commerative edition.
It’s beautiful, don’t disturb it . . . leave it just like it is . . .
On special occasions, a coke now and then won't hurt you. I prefer the sweeter taste of Pepsi, but then I grew up in the midwest where it is a common treat. You just can't help having one at some venues such as movies, sporting events and family gatherings.

How much Coca Cola do you drink in a week?Do you drink 1 or more cans of Coca Cola, or is it litres or gallons of Coca Cola.

I can't imagine how anyone can drink 2 gallons of Coke per DAY! But this woman also had a very poor diet nutrition-wise and was a heavy smoker, so it probably just wasn't the soda alone that caused her death. I just don't understand how she didn't see all of this as a formula for disaster, or if...
