According to This American Life, a program on National Public Radio, today's Coca-Cola recipe may still be well-guarded, but an original recipe--possibly developed by John Pemberton--has been discovered. The recipe, found in two different notebooks (one belonging to Pemberton, another to his friend) was published in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution back in 1979.
