Coca-Cola is a soda that was created in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. It is one of the most recognised brands on earth, and there is even a Coca-Cola museum in Atlanta dedicated to it. Their only true rival is Pepsi (formerly called Pepsi-Cola), which was really popular during the Great Depression.

It goes great with pizza, as well as cheeseburgers and various Japanese foods.

It is also the official Cola of the Olympic Games.

Some of the commercials for this product during Christmas involve either cute polar bears or Santa Claus.

Background

Coca-Cola was first invented by John Pemberton, a Georgian chemist/pharmacist, in 1886. It was first sold at Jacob's Pharmacy at the soda fountain as a cure-all elixir. Even though it didn't cure anything, it was still delicious, causing it to become popular. Eventually, it was bottled and produced around the United States, then the world. In 1985, though, they changed the formula, only to change it back quickly due to public pressure.

Nowadays, it is the most well known brand on earth, and is the greatest in Koridai.

  • Please don't confuse it with cocaine.
  • Is commonly known as a symbol of freedom, democracy, and the American way. In fact, in 1989, as the Berlin Wall came down, many East Germans actually bought Coca-Cola by the caseload.
    • The Coca-Cola Company, through the West Berlin and Dunkirk bottlers, also gave away loads of Coke to East Germans arriving in West Germany. People in cars (Trabants and Wartburgs) were given whole cases, while pedestrians received six packs and single cans. Being that Coca-Cola was already known to East Germans as a small glimmer of freedom and hope, they gladly accepted.
