Coca Cola's History
In 1886 Coca Cola was haphazardly invented in Atlanta by an pharmacist John Pemberton. As the doctor was trying out new recipes, he mixed together the still secret ingredients and created a syrupy substance. He took the concoction to a nearby pharmacy where it was added to carbonated water and sold for a nickel a glass. After selling just a few dozen glasses per day, the product quickly caught on as a local favorite and by 1888 Asa Griggs Candler had begun marketing the product nationwide in various forms. Although the marketing campaigns were obviously made very public, the mystery ingredients that make up the patented recipe formula remain one of the most closely guarded secrets in the universe.
