FYI, continuing with the soda theme, I got a trivia question in my inbox today, about the original name of Pepsi Cola. I had no idea and guesssed something that was not right. Well apparently Pepsi was invented by drugstore owner Caleb Bradham in New Bern North Carolina in 1892. The original pepsi was a mixture of f sugar, water, caramel, lemon oil, nutmeg, and other natural additives, It did not contain pepsin, but was widely marketed as a healthy cola and an aid to digestion. Now, you will know the original name of Pepsi was Brad's drink!

The name Pepsi sounds a lot better, even if I do not like the taste.

I was never that much of a Pepsi fan,but used to drink it when I was a kid. I prefer Coke.

Contrary to popular opinion though it didn't contain pepsin which would have been good for the stomach!

Pepsi has a better sound to it than Brad's Drink. Doesn't make it taste any better, though!
