Coke & StarloftsPgh

On this day in 1886, the syrup for Coca-Cola was invented by Dr. John Pemberton, an American pharmacist in Atlanta, Georgia. Pemberton combined the syrup with carbonated water, brought a jug to a local pharmacy in town for others to sample it.  Everyone pronounced the new drink as “excellent” and “delicious and refreshing.”  It was then put on sale for five cents a glass at the pharmacy’s soda fountain.  Soon others caught on and started selling the new soda beverage at their stores. Today, daily servings of Coca‑Cola beverages are estimated at 1.9 billion globally and the company has expanded to different geographies and market segments around the word.
