You've never tried White Coke before. Very few people have even sipped the elusive elixir—except for the Marshal of the Soviet Union, Georgy Zhukov. After Dwight Eisenhower gave the Communist leader a can of Coca-Cola, Zhukov found himself obsessed with the classic American drink. And that's where the problem began.
Zhukov made the very odd executive decision to create a colorless coke that tasted the same as the original formula. Why? Because Coke was seen by the Communists as a symbol for American Imperialism. So Zhukov made a request to have a colorless version of the soda made, as it resembled vodka, a far more culturally acceptable drink in the Soviet Union at that time...or any time, for that matter.
