Coca-Cola (often shortened to Coke) is a carbonated soft drink that was first introduced in 1886. Since then Coca-Cola has grown to become one of the most recognizable brands in the world. The Coca-Cola company has a long line of flavored beverages, some of the most popular being: Coca-Cola Classic, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Coca-Cola Cherry and Coca-Cola Vanilla.
Coca-Cola was first introduced in 1886 by a local pharmacist by the name of John Pemberton. It was developed to be a cure for many diseases, including morphine addicion, dyspepsia, neruasthenia and headache. Coca-Cola received the name from the coca leaf which is the primary ingredient in the beverage to this day. The original Coca-Cola Classic recipe included cocaine but today the cocaine is extracted out of the coca leaf.
Coca-Cola's advertising strategies have had a large impact on American culture. The company is often given credit for depicting the image of the modern day Santa Claus as an old man with white hair in a red-and-white suit. Coca-Cola is also often commonly associated with classy female figures holding different coke products, polar bears, the holidays and the popular song Teach the World to Sing. Coca-Cola has been very successful with their marketing campaigns therefore setting the standards in the world of advertising.
Coca-Cola today remains one of the most recognizable brands in the world. It is marketed and flavored differently to appeal to the 200 different countries that it sells to. Being that it was born in America, the Coca-Cola logo and name are commonly associated with the U.S.
