Coca-Cola, also known as Coke, is the world's most popular soda drink. It was invented in Atlanta, Georgia, USA in 1886 by John Pemberton. Originally the drink was cocaine-based, hence the name, but was removed in 1903. The Coca-Cola Company produces Coca-Cola and Fanta, an orange soda, as well as many other beverages. The intense trade-secrecy protecting Coke's recipe has become a running gag of popular culture.
In one alternate, the recipe for Coca-Cola was lost in the Russian-American War in 1967, and so production permanently ceased. The CrosstimeMendoza family had cache of Coke stored in their basement. Dan of The Valley was enthralled when he and his friends discovered this delightfully anachronistic beverage.
