Cocoa Cola Sloppy Joes

Penny Hall


The Birth of Coco Cola was born in Atlanta Georgia on May 8, 1886 by Dr. John Stith Pemberton, a local pharmacist, who produced the syrup for Coca-Cola and carried a container of the new product dwon the street to Jacobs Pharmacy, where it was sampled, pronounced "excellent", and placed on sale for five cents a glass as a soda fountain drink. Carbonated water was teamed with the new syrup to produce a drink that was at once "delicious and refreshing" ( a theme that echoes to this day). Dr. Pemberton, partner to Frank M. Robinson, never lived to see the success of the beverage he created.
