I read in the news that someone has discovered the secret recipe for coca-cola and after reading the recipe I say, WHO CARES!
Anyone can take a series of ingredients, make a black liquid and fizz it up, but the point of coke is that you don’t have to do anything but open the bottle.
There is no secret recipe for coffee or tea. We make them ourselves every day, yet there are entire chains of stores devoted to supplying us with this thing we all know how to make ourselves for a fraction of the cost. We even buy water when we are out and the only ingredient needed for us to do that at home is an opposable thumb to turn the tap.
We buy things for convenience, not because there is some sort of secret that prevents us from doing it ourselves. Humans are lazy. If you delivered a box of ingredients and specific instructions to make coca-cola to every single house I really doubt that they would see a dip in sales.
I think that the people that are excited about this need to get over themselves. The only thing I would go out of my way to make at home is cash. Where do I get the recipe for that?
