An operation by The Revenue Customs Service, the Garda National Drugs & Organised Crime Bureau and the Wicklow/Wexford Garda Divisions resulted in a vehicle being stopped in Dublin Port and in a subsequent search of a refrigerated unit, ‘Laddie’ the Customs Dog. located 20kgs of Cocaine concealed among a cache of melons.

The drugs with an estimated value of € 1.4 million  were subsequently seized. The melons, with a street value of approx €2 each (analysis pending), were also taken.

One male aged 22 years is currently being detained under Section 2 of The Criminal Justice (Drugs Trafficking) Act 1996 at Blanchardstown Garda Station.

So far, questioning has proved fruitful.

According to the US radio show, This American Life, the closely-guarded secret formula of Coca-Cola has finally been revealed.

Clearly visible in a photo (above), published in the February 18, 1979 edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, is an alleged hand-written copy of Coke inventor John Pemberton’s original recipe:

Fluid extract of Coca: 3 drams USP + Citric acid: 3 oz + Caffeine: 1 oz + Sugar: 30 (unclear quantity) + Water: 2.5 gal + Lime juice: 2 pints, 1 quart + Vanilla: 1 oz + Caramel: 1.5 oz or more for color.

The secret 7X flavor (use 2 oz of flavor to 5 gals syrup): Alcohol:  8 oz + Orange oil: 20 drops + Lemon oil: 30 drops + Nutmeg oil: 10 drops + Coriander: 5 drops + Neroli: 10 drops + Cinnamon: 10 drops.

The people at Coca-Cola Co. have denied the claim.

But then, they would, wouldn’t they?
