A long time ago last century the Coca-Cola company had so many versions for the drink that David Letterman produced a skit where he would call the Coca-Cola company's 800 number for drink information an the answering tape would spell out all of the drinks available the company: Cherry Coke, Cherry Coke without sugar but with caffeine; cherry coke with caffein but no sugar. Diet coke with caffeine. Diet Coke w/o caffein but with sugar. Diet Coke w/o caffein and w/o sugar. New Coke (they just added Pepsi to it). New Coke with saccharin but with caffeine. New Coke with sugar and no caffeine. New Coke classic (wait a minute!) etc...

Sorry if I forgot one!

What are they doing here? Do they have some sort of blister pack inside the bottle that will break on impact?
