First Time?

Franchesca tells us about The Real Thing:

Only two people in the company know Coca-Cola's formula, and each of them only knows half of it.

Coca-Cola's name was translated into Chinese as "bite the wax tadpole."

Coca-Cola used to contain cocaine.

A tooth left in a glass of Coca-Cola will dissolve overnight.

Snopes calls them mostly false:

Formula: http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/formula.asp
Chinese name: http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/tadpole.asp
Tooth: http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/tooth.asp

However, the cocaine thing is techincally true: http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/cocaine.asp
It used Coca leaves, from which cocaine is derived, so there was probably cocaine in it.

Coca-Cola, when first introduced... was green.
