Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola was introduced in 1983 as a caffeine-free variant of Coca-Cola. It was introduced to compete against Pepsi Free, which is now called Caffeine-Free Pepsi. The diet variant, Caffeine-Free Diet Coke, was the first variant of Diet Coke and was introduced in 1984, one year before the regular Coke version. In 2013, "Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola Zero" was introduced in America.

In April 1985, Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola was switched to the ill-fated New Coke formula and did not switch back to the Coca-Cola Classic formula until 1989. The word "Classic" was removed from the label in spring 2011 in the U.S.
