Details of the Pepsi
Caleb Bradham created Pepsi as “Brad’s Drink” in 1893 and sold it at his New Bern, North Carolina, drugstore. In 1898, it was renamed Pepsi-Cola, with “Cola” referring to the cola flavor and “Pepsi” because it was advertised as a remedy for dyspepsia (indigestion).
Although pepsin was never used as an ingredient in Pepsi-Cola, some have also suggested that the name “Pepsi” may have been a reference to the beverage that aids digestion like the digestive enzyme pepsin. Sugar and vanilla were also included in the original recipe. Bradham set out to make a drink that looked good, helped with digestion and gave him more energy.
