Coke pulls German-language ad that seems nostalgic for “the Good Old Times” when Hitler ruled

By Benjamin Snyder

Coca-Cola has pulled a recent ad over controversy related to Nazi Germany, Consumerist reports.

The German-language ad was meant to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Coca-Cola’s fruit-flavored Fanta soft drinks. The ad explains Fanta came about because Coca-Cola’s German bottlers couldn’t get access to soda syrup. However, it failed to explain why that shortage existed: Trade embargoes against Nazi-era Germany.
