Yup, we did drink some (diet anyway) and learned some fast facts about the Coca Cola Company:
Coca Cola was invented in 1886. In the first year, syrup sales totaled $50. The inventor sold the drink for $2,300. The guy who bought it for $2,300 became incredibly successful, but he sold the bottling rights for $1. Amazing, huh? Coca Cola now sells 450 brands of drinks in 200 countries.
No longer sold as a “brain tonic”, though! And check out the early attempt at portable syrup “canned especially for home and outings”. Loo
