The truth about new Coke

Continuing the discussion from The Debunker: Can Mormons Drink Coke?:

Little know fact…While serving a 2 year mission trip to South America, Captain John Smith, the founder of Mormons married Pocahontas. It was her that introduced John to Coca-Cola. After his mission and back in the states, he tried to replicate the drink and invented New Coke. It was poorly received by members of the Mormon faith and that led to the banning of all soft drinks except Dr. Pepper. (But that is because Doctor Brigham Pepper, drink founder, is an active member of the Mormon faith) #factcheck #shenanigans #kenjennings
