National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day is celebrated on November 19 in America. This is a holiday for those who cannot imagine life without delicious drinks. Caffeine is added to various drinks, found in tea, coffee. Join the party and don’t forget to pour yourself a glass!
Interestingly, it was alcoholic drinks that became the first carbonated drinks. This happened in the 1600s: beer, wine, champagne were fermented. Chemists were behind this work, constantly experimenting with processes. Then a special apparatus appeared that filled the liquid with bubbles. English scientist Joseph Priestley discovered a new method in 1767 – he hung a bottle of water over a beer vat. It was an accidental, but such an important discovery!
The famous Coca-Cola and Pepsi, which have been with us all our lives, became popular in the 1960s. A lot of time has passed, but drinks have only become stronger in the world. They also contain caffeine, which makes them appealing to consumers.
Did you know that:
- Priestley was admitted to the French Academy of Sciences in 1772;
- 7-up – a favorite drink for many, was patented as a medicine. This state of affairs continued until the 1950s;
- Coca-Cola is the world’s best-selling drink. It is surprising that if you count the total number of bottles produced, then each inhabitant of the planet will get 1,5 pieces;
- Fanta appeared in Germany during the Second World War. They were deprived of export, so they themselves decided to create something special. As a result, fanta was made from whey and apple pomace. Basically it was food waste.
