incorporated The Coca-Cola Company in 1892. The company has operated
a franchised distribution system since 1889, wherein The Coca-Cola Company only produces

1) Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola (often referred to simply as Coke) is a carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-
Cola Company. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th
century by John Pemberton and was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose
marketing tactics led Coca-Cola to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout
the 20th century. The drink's name refers to two of its original ingredients, which were kola
nuts (a source of caffeine) and coca leaves. The current formula of Coca-Cola remains a trade
secret, although a variety of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been
published.
2) Limca

certain parts of the U.S. It contains 60 calories per 150ml can. The formula does not include
fruit, relying instead on artificial flavors.

in 1961 as a competitor to 7 Up. Bottles of Sprite are usually a transparent green colour with
