Alcoholic and Coked-up Coco-Cola!


The Most Loved Beverage ‘Coca-Cola’ used to be alcoholic and coked-up. Yes, you read it right! It contained a considerable amount of cocaine and alcohol to render its drinkers high as a kite.

In 1886, Coca-Cola was invented by Pharmacist John Stith Pemberton, as a ‘Tonic Wine’ named ‘Pemberton’s French Wine Coca’ to cure diseases, including morphine addiction, indigestion, nerve disorders, headaches, and impotence. To avoid liquor regulations, Pemberton chose to mix his coca-leaf extract with sugar syrup instead of Bordeaux wine. Consequently, Coca-Cola was born. But coca-leaf extract contains 0.8% cocaine alkaloid in it.



Coca-Cola had nine milligrams of cocaine per glass. Despite the fact, cocaine is illegal now, yet in the 19th-century cocaine was legal and used as a medicinal drug. Eventually, cocaine was made illegal in 1914, nevertheless, Coca-Cola wouldn’t become cocaine-free until 1929 when scientists excelled the process of removing all intoxicating elements from the coca-leaf extract.

 In 1985, coco-cola tried its new formula without coco-leaf extract, which turned out to be catastrophic for the company.
