What is the caffeine content of Coca-Cola Classic?

Coca-Cola Classic (often refereed to as Coke), which is the pioneer of the carbonated cola industry, has 2.83 mg of caffeine per ounce and a total of 34 mg of caffeine in a 12 ounce can.

Created in the late 19th century Coca-Cola Classic gets it's name from the extraction of Coca leaves used in the recipe. While only a select few know the carefully guarded recipe it has been rumored that the original Coca-Cola contain minor amounts of cocaine from the Coca Leaf.

Even if this rumor was true the present day formula does not contain any as the coca leaves are carefully processed in New Jersey by the only manufacturing plant authorized by the federal government to import and process coca leaves, which it obtains from Peru and Bolivia.
