Early Scanners & Coke

Coke in the early years.

Apparently Coke had some bad experiences with barcode scanners in the early days. Coke Zero resulted in a swiss army knife, and Diet Coke resulted in a pink pillow. They didn't call out the scanners by name, but I fear we were one of these. I think we've improved since then.
