Famous soda drinks: 100 years ago taste(probes are inside the article)

Every time, when we open a can or a bottle of our favourite drink we know that its taste will be the same all the time. And we think that nobody thinks about why is the drink taste exactly suchlike?

Coca-Cola

Coca-Cola drink included components and stuffs one hundred years ago that you can taste today only illegal. And Coca-Cola original recipe, which was created march 29 1886, was really different then recipe which are used for real Coca-Cola drink production

Coca-Cola was invented as a headache stuff. A syrup, which was cooked by colonel John Clifford Pemberton in march 1886, contains coca leafs, caffeine and sugar. Apparently it really had got simulating effect because the stuff has got cocaine in its compound. Actually Coca-Cola hadn't got cocaine in its compound since 1903, but there are a lot of disputes and discussions about the most famous drink original recipe in the world.

According to official legend Coca-Cola recipe, which was created by Pemberton, is stored with securuty somewhere at chemist homeland in Atlanta. But american antiquarian Cliff Kluge claimed in May 2013 that he found recipe, which was wrote by John Pemberton and was dated at 1943 year. Kludge tryed to sell it on Ebay - start lot's price was 5 million dollars. Antiquarian shared recipe photos for more cogency.

By the way snapshots of the expected original document, which included all ingredients and proportions, was published in 1979 and radioshow This American Life leadings claimed in 2011 that original recipe was decrypted.

    Coca-Cola could be produced a half of the century ago with next ingredients:
  • liquid extract from coca leafs(3 drachmas)
  • lemon acid(3 ounces)
  • cofein(1 ounce)
  • sugar(30 measures)
  • water(2,5 gallons)
  • lime juice(2 pints)
  • vanilla(1 ounce)
  • caramel(1,5 and more ounces)
    Additionally, according to This American Life, there are 2 once of secret ingredient Merchandise X7 on 5 gallons of syrup:
  • alcohol(8 ounces)
  • orange oil(20 drops)
  • nutmeg oil(10 drops)
  • coriander oil(5 drops)
  • orange flowers essential oil(10 drops)
  • cinnamon oil(10 drops)

By the way this varianf of Coca-Cola recipe - is not the only one. There is information that favourite drink consists of sugar, sugar staggers, cofein, orthophosphoric acid, corn syrup with high contents of fructose, coca extract, cola nuts extract, lemon extract, vanilla and glycerol. Some "experts" reassures that Coca-Cola recipe hes got some extract, that actually is natural colorant "Сarmin" or dietary supplement "Сochenille", which is extracted from particular insect's genus - cochenille worms.

Pepsi

Pepsi known as the most famous Coca-Cola competitor doesn't want to publish its workmanship secrets too. But there is a fact that in 1893, when Coca-Cola trademark was officially registered, pharmacist Caleb Bradham tryed to create a tonic drink based on sugar, sparkling water, vanilla, oil and cola nuts.

In this way, american shops get Brad’s Drink, which was named as strengthening, amusing and improvштп digestion by its creator.

Tha drink got prominence instantly and was renamed in Pepsi Cola by Bradham because it contained pepsin and cola nuts. Pepsi Cola Company was founded in 1902, which had contended with Coca-Cola manufacturer more than a hundred years for seiling areas.

Fanta

Fanta as a favourite drink for many people has been made of secondary raw materials at the start point of its rise. In other words, Fanta was invented due to sanctions which were implemented to Nazi Geramany by coalition during the Second World War.

Germany Coca-Cola plant lost all its abroad shippers in 1940. And Michael Kite, who was the production head, decided to find a solution for current cituation.

In this way, shops have got a yellow colored drink. It has been produced with apple pomace and milk serum, which were refused after cider and cheese production.

New drink great success was in simple recipe which was named as "fantastic" by somebody. New drink even got an appropriate name - Fanta

    Modern classic Fanta has got clear other ingridients:
  • Clear sparkling water
  • Sugar
  • Orange juice 3%
  • Acidity regulator(lemon acid)
  • Antioxidant (ascorbic acid)
  • Natural flavor
  • Stabilizer (glycerol and resin acid esters)
  • Beta-carotene colorant
7-up

Another once legendary drink was creatured as a result of experiments, which was made by chemist Charles Leiper Grigg in 1920. Once he has tryed to add lithium citrate in his drink. It was a stuff from drugs, which was prescribed for affective insanity.

Drink with such name was really helpful in Great Depression years. There was a fact, that lithium citrate helped with hangover syndrome.

Soon, name "Lithium-lemon sparkling water" was replaced with more progressive "7-up" name. But ingridient against affective insanity have been included in its compound till last century middle. And besides the drink was officially registered as a drug.

It is interesting, that there are a lot of rumors about 7-up. According one of them the drink was named 7-up because it had got 7 ingridients in its compound. Other version is lithium atomic weight, it's seven.

But actually the reason is simpler: cans, in which was firstly poured out 7-up, contained exactly 7 ounces of the drink.

Dr Pepper

Dr Pepper, Forest Gump and South Park heroes favourite drink, was invented due to pharmaceutical trials.

Dr Pepper base ingridient was cherry syrup, which was decided to add in the drink by pharmacist Wade Morrison and Robert Lazenby.

Dr Pepper was originally solded exclusively in pharmacies and was positioning as a "King of drinks without cofein". However manufacturers have corrected the shortage and cofein has become to appear in the drink in amount that was necessary in such products.

It's very funny, that one of tne drink's name appearance - Dr Pepper drink name was the name of military doctor, who
has prohibited Wade Morrison for marriage his daughter. We think, that he has tooken pity about such solution.

IrnBru

Certainly IrnBru is the most secret dring among all known present drink. Its recipe is so kept secret that its production ingridients are mixed together once a month by CEO Ag Barr, who are responsible for its production.

In 2009, reaching 71 years, the CEO Ag Barr, Robin Barr, claimed that he was going to retire on pension. But mixing ingridients role was retained to his own. Anyway exactly Barr is one of two "secret recipe" keepers during a half of the century. The second keeper name are unknown for press.

Orange "sparkling water for adult" was invented by Barr's great-grandfather. A recipe notation are saved in deposit box of one of the most reliable Scotland banks now. Since CEO Ag Barr personally mixies 32 drink components in 8000 litres tank in sealed headquarters once a month. Ingridients propotion is known only for his. As a planned, Barr will transfer all his knowledges to his daughter in future. But such situation is not so close due to good Barr health.

Schweppes

Geneva jeweler Iogann Jacob Shwepp puzzled to invent a sparkling water production machine in the end of XVIII.

Shwepp spent 20 years for reaching his desire about non-alcohol champagne production. Shwepp sparkling water didn't got popularity in Switzerland and he went to England - clever people prompted Iogann that englishmen likes brandy and Iogann planned holding brandy diluted sector.

Lemonade and fruit water had been started to produce since 30 years in previous century. But one of that products is unchangeable since 1783. Schwepp became a water shipper naturally in period British government in colonial India. Due to Europe migrants often were face-to-face with exotic deseases, hinin which was added in Schweppes just was they were needed

Everybody found out soon that the drink has got not only good taste - it could be used for diluting strong alcohol drinks. Today Schweppes became an integral part of Jin-Tonic cocktail.

Russian sparkling waters: Baikal, Tarhun and Sayani

USSR promoted its answer foreign drinks - "Baikal" gained popularity immediately among soviet people.

In this case unique recipe has played its role: besides traditional water, sugar and lemon acid, manufacturer has added tutsan extract, malt root, eleutherococcus, essential oils of eucalyptus, lemon, bay and fir

Other legendary soviet sparkling water "Sayani" was invented in middle 60th. The lemonade particular aroma is imparted by extract of mountain grass leuzea which attaches wormwood bitterness and a bit pine aroma to the drink

"Tarhun" was invented yet in XIX century by apothecary Mitrofan Lagidze lived in Tiflyse(Tbilisy). Mitrofan came up with adding famous caucasian plant estragon in drink. But actual "Tarhun" drink production was adjusted in Russia in 1981. Estragon drink was a bit yellow, so problem with "greening" was solved very easy - the drink was bottled off green bottles.
