    Coca Cola is a very successful company, but I believe that their products are very harmful, especially if you drink many sodas. I don’t know why North Korea and Cuba haven’t approved it. It’s possibly because of their governments and their theories. Finally, I would like to say that I have heard many rumors about the secret formula. I think that all the Directors of the Departments know about it. Especially the Board of the Directors. I am very sure for this.
