Popular Soda Brands
Who in this world doesn’t love a good, frizzy, sweetie soda drink! From a toddler to an aged elder, soda drinks have captured the hearts and the taste buds of all. Soda drinks, cold drinks, carbonated soft drinks are all the different names for this type of frizzy drink. The drinks are non-alcoholic and made out of carbonated water, sweetening agent (or any other flavor) and a high level of sugar. This sugar dose is what obese and diabetic patients are asked to avoid from. Anyways, keeping the medical side apart, let’s take a look at some of the most popular drinks worldwide.
Initially brought out in 1863, by Caleb Bradham who owned a pharmacy shop, the drink was named as Brad’s Drink. However, it was later renamed as Pepsi Cola, but the reason of changing the name is still vague. Some believe it was changed because of the pepsin enzyme and the kola nuts used in making the drink. Brad’s main goal was to create a drink that is tasty and at the same time able to help in digestion and enhance a person’s energy levels.
The Coca Cola should not be confused with the Pepsi Cola. Both are competing rivals with a fine line of market shares between them. The Coca Cola is also a product that was born in a pharmacist’s shop in 1886, and was made by John Stith Pemberton. Unlike the Pepsi Cola Inc., the Coca Cola has gone through various changes and was mastered by a skillful corporate. The company was formally established in 1892 by John Stith and Ed Holland and was named as the J.S Pemberton Medicine Company. It had three important products, the Pemberton’s French Wine Cola, The Pemberton’s Indian Queen Hair Dye and Pemberton’s Globe Flower Cough Syrup. The company later underwent many changes to come to its status today. Currently, it has 500 brands in over 200 countries and is recorded to serve 1.6 billion drinks a day.
Unlike the Pepsi Cola and the Coca Cola, the 7 Up is not a caffeine drink (which is why it is white in color). It was developed in 1929 by Charles Leiper Grigg, who came up with a lemon soft drink. It was originally named as the “Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda” and was popular because of its ability to lighten up a depressive mood. Though it does not have a high sales like Coke or Pepsi, it is chosen by people who prefer a non-caffeinated drink.
A popular drink in the US, Dr. Pepper was made by Charles Alderton in 1885. The drink is considered to have a unique flavor and has a taste of its own that is similar to no other soda drink. There has been a circle of business deals cornering Coca Cola, 7 UP and Dr. Pepper. Eventually Dr. Pepper and 7 UP merged and became as one.
