The carbonated drink Coca-Cola, or Coke, is a soft drink made by The Coca-Cola Company. It was originally marketed as a sobriety drink and intended as a patent medicine, invented by John Stith Pemberton in the late 19th century and bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coca-Cola throughout the 20th century to dominate the world soft drink market. The name of the drink refers to two of its original ingredients: coca leaves and kola nuts (a source of caffeine). Coca-current Cola's formula remains a trade secret; though a number of reported recipes and experimental recreations have been published but Coca-Cola has its own theory.
Under the Coke brand, the Coca-Cola Corporation has occasionally launched other cola beverages. Diet Coke is the most popular of these, along with others, including Caffeine-Free Coca-Cola, Diet Coke Caffeine-Free, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Coca-Cola Raspberry, Coca-Cola Vanilla, and lemon, lime, and coffee special varieties. From July 1985 to 2009, Coca-Cola was branded Coca-Cola Classic, to differentiate it from "New Coke" Coca-Cola was the world's third most valuable brand, after Apple and Google, based on Interbrand's "best global brand" report of 2015. Coke products were distributed in more
than 200 countries worldwide in 2013, with customers drinking more than 1.8 billion corporate beverages every day.
Sprite is a soft drink created by The Coca-Cola Company with colorless, lemon and lime.
