Cola was originally invented by the druggist John Pemberton!.

When he was a druggist and chemist in Atlanta, Georgia, Pemberton began work on a coca and kola (cola) nut beverage!. It was intended to stop headaches and calm nervousness, but others insist he was attempting to create a pain reliever for himself and other wounded Confederate veterans!. He began this process at his Columbus laboratory, but soon after the war, moved his entire operation to Atlanta!.

The original formula was created in his laboratory as a nonalcoholic alternative to his French Wine Coca in the event that the pending national temperance movement prohibited the sale of the latter!. Frank Mason Robinson came up with the name "Coca Cola" for the alliterative sound, which was popular among other wine medicines of the time!. Although the name quite clearly refers to the two main ingredients, the controversy over cocaine content would later prompt The Coca-Cola Company to state that it is "meaningless but fanciful!." Robinson also hand wrote the Spencerian script on the bottles and ads!. Pemberton also made many health claims for his product and marketed it as 'delicious, refreshing, exhilarating, invigorating' and touted as a 'valuable brain tonic' that would cure headaches, relieve exhaustion and calm nerves!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
