I don't speak French, but I'd bet the "nova" in "Nova Scotia" is the translation of "New." Perhaps that could be a bonus or something?

Woah, woah, woah, woah, woah! How did Papua New Guinea get into this quiz? I know it says that "new" only has to part of each answer, but every other answer starts with "new" (except for "A New Hope", where the article doesn't count).

Coke was the market leader for a long time, but then in the 80s they started losing to Pepsi. Badly. They were desperate and decided to rebrand and reformulate and came out with a drink that was sweeter and tasted more like Pepsi - New Coke. They discontinued selling "old Coke" at the same time. People were very upset. After a period of protests and petitions and boycotts, they brought back "Coca-Cola Classic," which instantly went on to outsell Pepsi, and in the USA has ever since. After some time New Coke was discontinued. I don't think that this was their intention, but it turned out to be a pretty ingenious marketing strategy even if by accident.

Actually, New Coke does live on, in a sense. The formula for Diet Coke is based on New Coke. They swapped in artificial sweetener to match New Coke's sweetness. I was the first on my block to try it. Had a doctor appointment the day it was introduced and Mom took me to McD's for lunch after. Came back to English class and reported that I was not a fan at all.
+1
Level 83
Sep 5, 2020
really? Don't recall them tasting at all similar. And I always actually preferred Diet Coke to Coca Cola Classic in large part because I find regular Coke to be *too* sweet. Also too thick and syrupy. In addition to being 100+ calories per serving. Basically liquid candy.

I was one of those strange people who liked New Coke better, but that makes sense because I always liked Pepsi better than Coke. Coca-cola always tasted like medicine to me except the ones sold in the little 8 oz. glass bottles - for some reason those didn't seem to taste as bad.

The New Orleans thing doesn't make sense and should be removed. It's an old Christian song of unknown origin that is very common in England, both in sports and otherwise. New Orleans should not be the answer.

On the contrary, the song is a very good clue to the city. It does not imply the song was written there, and it is an unofficial athem, and the NFL Saints do regularly march there.
