Fun Fact- Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola was invented in 1886 by John Pemberton, but it was his bookkeeper Frank Robinson who named the soda and who's script handwriting the classic logo is designed from.

Coca-Cola's first year of sales grossed $50...a $20 loss for the inventor.  It was Permberton selling the
Coca-Cola formula and advertising that saved the soda and made it what it is today. 

*If you're wondering...I don't drink Coca-Cola, but find it's history very interesting and have collected several Coca-Cola items, vintage bottles, and fabric over the years :)

  1. I did not realize that Coca-Cola was made in 1886. I always assumed in the 1900's!
