“Stranger Things” is making a return with a new season on July 4 – and NEW COKE is coming too! In a throwback to the summer of 1985, when Coca-Cola infamously changed the formula of its flagship soda for 79 days, several episodes of the Netflix series will prominently feature New Coke. “New Coke was always going to play a role this season,” Stranger Things creators and showrunners Matt and Ross Duffer (“the Duffer Brothers”) said in an interview with The New York Times. “It was one of the first ideas in our Season 3 brainstorm. It was the summer of ’85, and when you talk about pop culture moments, New Coke was a really big deal. It would have been more bizarre to not include it.” You can even score your own 12-oz. cans of New Coke (with the 1985 recipe!) as part of a bundle when you buy at least two limited-edition Stranger Things Coca-Cola or Coke Zero Sugar 8-oz. glass bottles at CokeStore.com/1985.
