Read the most interesting facts about Coca-Cola
"Coca-Cola" was invented by doctor-pharmacist John Pemberton in 1886. John considered the drink a medicinal tincture and thought it would help with stomach pains. This is logical, given that coca leaves, which were initially one of the ingredients of Coca-Cola, contain cocaine (from 0.1% to 0.9%). Today, however, Coca-Cola is produced without the use of cocaine.
Initially, Coca-Cola was sold in pharmacies as a medicine.
A pharmacist developed the recipe that later formed the basis of the famous soda recipe based on coca leaves, a renowned plant for its sedatives. The pharmacist promised that a drink made from these leaves would relieve headaches, cramps, and hangovers and be extremely useful for those who suffer from depression. It was because of the healing properties of the plant that is part of the drink that it was sold in pharmacies and was considered a medicine. To buy the first Coca-Cola, a prescription from a doctor was required because then, it was not a soft drink but a medicine.
When Coca-Cola was born, it was already known about the properties of the coca leaves that were part of it. Still, their use or possession was not considered criminal, so they were often added to food. However, after proving that these leaves are addictive and narcotic, the technology for making Coca-Cola had to be changed - now, the coca leaves were carefully squeezed, removing the narcotic substance before adding them to the drink.
H.G. Wells wrote a satirical novel that makes fun of Coca-Cola
There is a novel with elements of satire written by HG Wells. It's called "Tono-Bengue" and cruelly ridicules the advertising campaign that the producers of Coca-Cola carried out.

Coca-Cola is the national symbol of America.

To attract attention, Coca-Cola producers have organized and continue to contain numerous promotions. When Coca-Cola was still gaining popularity, manufacturers tried their best to tell people how tasty and unusual their product was. For this, free tastings were held, and coupons were distributed to people, presenting which they could receive their free portion of sweet soda.
Today's manufacturers are not inferior to their predecessors: before each new year, a promotion is held in which you can win teddy bears in clothes with the Coca-Cola brand logo, as well as glasses, mugs, T-shirts, and other goods. It is enough to collect a sufficient number of caps from Coca-Cola bottles to get them.
