Coca-Cola (often referred to simply as Coke) is an American carbonated soft drink produced by The Coca-Cola Company in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Originally intended as a patent medicine, it was invented in the late 19th century by John Stith Pemberton. Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke 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.
The Coca-Cola Company has on occasion introduced other cola drinks under the Coke name. The most common of these is Diet Coke, with others including Caffeine-Free, Caffeine-Free Diet Coke, Cherry, Zero, Vanilla and special versions with lemon, lime, and coffee.
Based on Interbrand's best global brand study of 2015, Coca-Cola was the world's third most valuable brand and 11,200 people drink Cocacola per second all over the world. In 2013, Coke products were sold in over 200 countries worldwide, with consumers downing more than 1.8 billion company beverage servings each day.
