At my work, we have a two-door refrigerated beverage case filled with free drinks. It is my job to order the drinks from Coca-cola. I called them recently to have them send me a new product list. They sent me what I can only guess to be something that was not meant to go out to the general public. It was a product list with a description of each beverage, including who their market is for each flavor:
