How Was "Coca Cola" Named?
Coca-Cola was named back in 1885 for its two "medicinal" ingredients: extract of coca leaves and kola nuts. Just how much cocaine was originally in the formulation is hard to determine, but the drink undeniably contained some cocaine in its early days. Trace amounts of cocaine continued to be an ingredient in the syrup in order to protect the trade name "Coca-Cola" until around 1929.
