|Manufacturer||The Coca-Cola Company|
|Country of origin||United States|
|Variants||Caffeine-Free Diet Coke|
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 after 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 unpopular 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.
As of August 2022, Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola is not readily available in stores. It has not been readily available since 2020. The explanation given by various non-official sources is that due to a shortage of aluminum cans due to COVID-19 related issues, less popular products are in short supply.  However, there is no current shortage of aluminum cans. The bottled 2-litre edition of the product has also been in short supply.
