* When this file was created, Coca Cola Classic and Cherry Coke were listed by both
the Coca-Cola Company and the National Soft Drink Association as having 45 mg caffeine
per 12 oz can. As of Oct 2001 both of those organizations have revised their numbers to
show 34 mg per 12 oz can. We are unsure whether the caffeine content has changed or
if it was previously mis-reported by Coca-Cola.
