Nov 13, 2022 | Food/Drink, Videos

Coca-Cola, or Coke, is a carbonated soft drink manufactured by the Coca-Cola Company. Originally marketed as a temperance drink and intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Stith Pemberton in Atlanta, Georgia.
The company markets, manufactures, and sells beverage concentrates, syrups, and finished beverages like soft drinks, water, sports drinks, juice, and more.
The Coca Cola soft drink was developed by pharmacist John Stith Pemberton in 1886. It contained cocaine from coca leaves and caffeine from kola nuts. Together, they acted as a stimulant, with Pemberton promoting it as a healthy tonic.
He developed the beverage as a patent medicine trying to control addition to morphine. In 1889, the formula and brand were sold for $2,300, which would be $71,000 in 2022 to Asa Griggs Candler, who started the company in Atlanta in 1892. Since then, it operates distribution to all around the world.
