Ever wondered why they called it Coca Cola?

Post by [GM]jordz0005 on Wed Oct 27, 2010 3:23 am

Hello forum, have you ever wondered why they called it Coca Cola? i have the answer to that The following text was copied from the Wikipedia page for Coca-Cola. "Pemberton called for five ounces of coca leaf per gallon of syrup, a significant dose; in 1891, Candler claimed his formula (altered extensively from Pemberton's original) contained only a tenth of this amount. Coca-Cola did once contain an estimated nine milligrams of cocaine per glass, but in 1903 it was removed. Coca-Cola still contains coca flavoring.
After 1904, instead of using fresh leaves, Coca-Cola started using "spent" leaves — the leftovers of the cocaine-extraction process with cocaine trace levels left over at a molecular level. To this day, Coca-Cola uses as an ingredient a cocaine-free coca leaf extract prepared at a Stepan Company plant in Maywood, New Jersey.
In the United States, Stepan Company is the only manufacturing plant authorized by the Federal Government to import and process the coca plant, which it obtains mainly from Peru and, to a lesser extent, Bolivia. Besides producing the coca flavoring agent for Coca-Cola, Stepan Company extracts cocaine from the coca leaves, which it sells to Mallinckrodt, a St. Louis, Missouri pharmaceutical manufacturer that is the only company in the United States licensed to purify cocaine for medicinal use." that was all from Wikipedia, weird huh?

Here is my second fact about Coca-Cola, they use a special syrup to make the cola, but the bad part is if they spill it, say on the floor, the syrup will eat away at the floor and they have to call in a bio hazard team to clean it up, i think an employee died when it was spilt on them or something.
