COLA

Coca Cola was originally described as an "Esteemed Brain Tonic and Intellectual Beverage."
 

Coca Cola was invented by Dr. John S. Pemberton in 1886. It was originally formulated with extracts of coca leaves and kola nuts.


Pepsi-Cola was created in 1898 by Caleb D. Bradham, a New Bern, North Carolina pharmacist.


Twelve percent of the cola beverages produced are consumed at breakfast.


A 20 bottle of Cola contains the equivalent of almost 16 cubes of sugar.
 

The first 12 oz aluminum can was introduced by Royal Crown Cola in 1964. It wasn't until 3 years later that Coke started using the aluminum can.
 

Coca Cola contains about 45 mg of Caffeine and Pepsi Cola about 39 mg.
 

In 1936 Jell-O came out with a cola flavored Jell-O. It was dropped the following year.
 

Cinnamon is one of the flavor components used in 'cola' soft drinks.
