A pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia conjured up the recipe for Coca Cola in 1886, and the rest is history. From what I understand, you don't even mention the word Pepsi here. I can't vouch for this story but someone told me that a delivery driver for Coca Cola was fired after someone tattled that he had a Pepsi during his lunch break. I find that hard to believe because I have yet to see a Pepsi product available for purchase anywhere in Atlanta.
We see Coca Cola murals, billboards, and products around the city more than any other. As the kids are avid bottle cap collectors, we are finding these bottle caps everywhere!
If you have a few minutes listen to this episode of This American Life. Ira Glass claims to have found the original recipe!
Please visit Ariane, Nadine, Veronica, Susan, Tania, Patrice, Eric, Joke, and Sally to see what they came up with. I am curious to know what kind of relationship y'all have with Coca Cola. Frankly, I can't drink it. It makes me a bit nauseous.
