seeing as that there are factories producing millions of gallons of coke a day, every day, and, i'm assuming without one of those two guys standing at the top of a vat saying "okay, everybody turn their backs while i do the secret mix" -- my guess is that those factories would continue to churn out coke if they both died and any food engineer who graduated in the bottom third of his class would be able to take a look at the list of ingredients they're buying every day, walk along the assembly line and tell you the exact amounts that they're being mixed in and have the "secret recipe" in 20 minutes.
