Coca Cola vs Pepsi


Charles Augustine, Writer

If you went around asking people which soda they would choose, it would be Coca Cola and Pepsi but still Coca Cola has been around for way longer and has been more effective on people compared to the Pepsi which is not as new but is still spreading world wide. Coca Cola was invented in 1892 and was later then getting kids to drink it by making Santa Claus ads. But the Pepsi ads have been mostly used on grown ups which don’t really spark kids at young ages.

Turns out that more than 18,519,550,000 drink Pepsi throughout the world. But that’s no match for the 36,187,670,000 people that drink Coca Cola which is almost twice as much as Pepsi. Although these drinks are pretty popular there is one drink that rules every type of drink and that it Water, but that’s not what we’re talking about.

Turns out that the Coca Cola company was made in downtown Atlanta Georgia. Coca Cola in 1892 was made from cocaine from the coca leaf and caffeine-rich extracts of the kola nut; the cocaine was removed from Coca-Cola’s formula in about 1903. 

The Pepsi company was made in New Bern, North Carolina The first Pepsi-Cola was created by Caleb D. Bradham (1866–1934), a pharmacist in New Bern, North Carolina. Hoping to duplicate the recent success of Coca-Cola, Bradham named his sweet cola-flavored carbonated beverage Pepsi-Cola in 1898.
