This article is about Coca-Cola, the world’s most popular soda. It was originally marketed as an “esteemed brain tonic & intellectual beverage”. It quickly took America by storm and became known as a great drink for all types of occasions such as playing baseball, celebrating weddings, and winning wars. However, in recent years it has come under fire for its high sugar content and unsavory ingredients.
It is still the top-selling soft drink in the world, but today people turn to healthier alternatives like sparkling water or flavored sparkling water instead of sugary drinks like Coca-Cola.
This soft drink is about 180 years old, making it older than the invention of modern-day canned soda. Invented in 1866 by pharmacist John Pemberton and created by pharmacist/inventor John S. Pemberton, Coca-Cola was originally marketed as an “esteemed brain tonic & intellectual beverage.” It quickly took America by storm and became known as a great drink for all types of occasions such as playing baseball, celebrating weddings, and winning wars. However, in recent years it has come under fire for its high sugar content and unsavory ingredients.
Coca-Cola is now the most popular soft drink in the world. The company earned $13 billion in 2014 and is approximately $40 billion in annual sales. It has been a top selling product since it was invented; it’s easy to see why people have grown accustomed to drinking Coca-Cola over other brands. But why do people continue to buy into the soda?
What does old habits die hard? After all, we’ve been drinking it for years now, and many of us are no longer children or teenagers. We understand that Coca-Cola is not always healthy, but we buy it anyway because Coca-Cola is the best-selling soda brand in the world. It takes a lot of time and effort to break an old habit, especially if that habit is something as convenient and delicious as Coca-Cola.
Coca-Cola has been a part of American history for over 100 years. It even played a role in the outcome of World War II. In the 1940s, American’s had trouble fighting Japanese soldiers because their bodies couldn’t handle the heat. The American army provided its soldiers with bottles of Coke, which allowed them to stay hydrated and combat their intense thirst. This strategy helped win the war and gave Coca-Cola more exposure than ever before, making it one of the most popular brands in America.
So why do people choose Coca-Cola over other brands of soda? One reason people love Coca-Cola is that the drink has a rich history and a special place in American culture. Americans celebrate holidays and special events with bottles of Coke. In many families, it is traditional to set out a few extra bottles of Coke when families are together for special events such as the 4th of July, Christmas and Thanksgiving.
Even today, Coca-Cola plays an important role in American culture. The company spends more than $3 billion on advertising per year and nearly all major companies sponsor some form of event or team associated with Coca-Cola. For example, the MLB, NBA and NFL all receive sponsorships from Coca-Cola. They promote their sports teams with exclusive drinks, which makes Coca-Cola an important part of many people’s lives.
Coca-Cola also plays a big role in relationships. According to a survey conducted by The Dating Divas, Coca-Cola was the third most popular beverage for couples to drink together. There are also people who say they drink Coke to celebrate the time they spend with their significant others. Coca-Cola is often used as a symbol of romance or love between partners because it is such a strong brand that has been apart of American history for so long.
