Coca Cola–What’s in a Name?

Andy Warhol once said, “What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca-Cola, and you can know that the President drinks Coke. Liz Taylor drinks Coke, and just think, you can drink Coke, too.” Perhaps it’s the accessibility, maybe that great taste–but there’s a reason Coca Cola is the soft drink brand that transcends time, distance, and culture. Famous foot soldiers like Bill Cosby, LeBron James, and Santa Clause can’t be wrong right?

What began in 1886 an Atlanta chemist introduced Coca-Cola, a tasty “potion for mental and physical disorders.” has become a soft drink found in over 200 countries worldwide, with consumers downing more than 1.8 billion company beverage servings each day. Since 1886, generations of Americans have grown up with the familiar red and white Coca-Cola logo surrounding them at every advertising turn. It’s no wonder that Coke memorabilia can be found in interesting and valuable collections the world over as well. Main Street Shoppes is part of that collector’s world!
