"Coca-Cola" and "Mentos"

If a bottle of “Mentos” is dropped into a bottle of “Coca-Cola” (a low-calorie cola is best), then the fountain of the drink will be pounded from the neck of the bottle. This happens because "Mentos" (especially unpainted and unglazed) creates discontinuities that serve as centers of release of dissolved carbon dioxide. Other ingredients that play a role in the chain reaction are aspartame (sugar substitute), sodium benzoate (preservative) and caffeine in Coca-Cola and gum arabic and gelatin in Mentos. These ingredients combine well, and if you mix them and add a sufficient number of gas release centers, a violent reaction begins, which releases all the carbon dioxide at once, which leads to a fountain of cola. The causes of this phenomenon were analyzed and described in the program “Mythbusters” on the Discovery Channel in season four, issue No. 57. The myth about the likelihood of damage to a normal stomach with a mixture of Coca-Cola and Mentos was also refuted. Using this effect, the Americans Fritz Grob and Stephen Waltz (Buckfield, Maine, USA) drove a 67 m jet car. The Jet Car is a children's bicycle and a large trolley with 108 bottles of Coca-Cola and 648 Mentos candies.


Coca-Cola was invented in Atlanta (Georgia, USA) on May 8, 1886 by pharmacist John Stith Pemberton - a former officer of the American Confederation Army (there is a legend that he was invented by a farmer who sold his recipe to John Stitu for $ 250, about what John Stith allegedly said in one of his interviews). The name for the new drink was invented by Pemberton’s accountant Frank Robinson, who also owned calligraphy and wrote the words “Coca-Cola” in curly letters, which are still the logo of the drink.

The main ingredients of Coca-Cola were as follows: three parts of coca leaves (from the same leaves in 1859, Albert Niemann (Albert Niemann) singled out a special component (drug) and called it cocaine) to one part of the nuts of a tropical cola tree. The resulting drink was patented as a drug "for disorders of the nervous system" and began to be sold through a machine in the largest city pharmacy Jacob in Atlanta. Pemberton also claimed that Coca-Cola heals impotence and that it can be passed on to those addicted to morphine (Pemberton himself was not indifferent to morphine). At that time, cocaine was not a prohibited substance, and its health hazards were not known (for example, in The Sign of the Four by Arthur Conan Doyle, Sherlock Holmes used cocaine in moments of inactivity, so painfully tolerated by him). Therefore, cocaine was sold freely, and it was often added for pleasure and tone to drinks instead of alcohol - “Coca-Cola” was not a novelty in this.

At first, only 9 people bought the drink daily. Sales revenue for the first year was only $ 50. On the production of "Coca-Cola" was spent $ 70, that is, in the first year the drink was unprofitable. But gradually, the popularity of Coca-Cola increased, and the profits from its sale, too. In 1888, Pemberton sold the rights to release the drink. In 1892, businessman Asa Griggs Candler, who owned the rights to Coca-Cola, founded the company The Coca-Cola Company, which is still producing the beverage.

Since 1894, "Coca-Cola" was sold in bottles.

In 1902, with a turnover of $ 120,000, Coca-Cola became the most famous drink in the United States.

The novel by English science fiction writer HG Wells “Tohno-Bang” is a satire on the creation, advertising and distribution of “Coca-Cola” (named in the novel “Tohno-Bang”).

In the late 1890s, public opinion turned against cocaine, and in 1903 a crushing article appeared in the New York Tribune, claiming that it was Coca-Cola that was to blame for the negroes from urban slums who started to drink white people. After that, not fresh coca leaves were added to Coca-Cola, but already “squeezed”, from which all cocaine was removed.

In 1915, designer Earl R. Dean (born Earl R. Dean) from Terre Hot, Indiana, came up with a new 6.5 ounce bottle. The shape of the bottle was inspired by the fruit of cocoa (according to one version, Dean confused the words “coca” and “cocoa”, on the other - could not find anything in the library about coca or coke). To make the bottle better stand on the conveyor belt, an extension is made below. Over all subsequent years, more than 6 billion of these bottles were produced.

In 1916, 153 lawsuits were instituted against imitator brands such as Fig Cola, Candy Cola, Cold Cola, Cay-Ola and Koca Nola.

In 1955, Coca-Cola began selling in bottles of 10, 12 and 26 ounces.

In 1980, Coca-Cola became the official drink of the Olympic Games in Moscow.

In 1982, began the release of diet Diet Coke.

In 1988, Coca-Cola entered the USSR market, production was established at the Moskvoretsky Brewery.

Later, under pressure from competitors that produced caffeine and sugar free drinks, The Coca-Cola Company began producing Classic Coke, New Coke, Cherry Coke, Tab, Caffeine-Free New Coke, Caffeine-Free Diet Coke and Caffeine-Free Tab beverages.

On December 4, 2007, Coca-Cola introduced a new glass bottle with a capacity of 0.33 liters, which became shorter by 13 mm, wider by 0.1 mm and weighs 210 grams, which is 20% less than the previous one. For example, in the UK, these changes reduce the use of glass to 3,500 tons per year, and carbon dioxide emissions - to 2,400 tons.

In January 2011 in California, 4-methylimidazole contained in a caramel dye was listed as a possible carcinogenic substance The Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, indicating that taking 16 μg of a substance per day is not significant. The indicated amount of the substance is much less than the average consumption of the substance by persons using Coca-Cola and Pepsi. The food industry has opposed this decision, pointing to the need for additional warnings on many products.

In March 2012, Coca-Cola and Pepsi reported changes in the production of caramel dyes to meet the new California standards. Drinks sold in California already meet new requirements. As of March 2012, the method of making caramel dyes used in Europe is not changed, the content of 4-methylimidazole remains at the same level.

Composition and formulation

The components of the “classic” version of Coca-Cola are:

  • purified carbonated water;
  • sugar;
  • natural dye caramel;
  • acidity regulator orthophosphoric acid;
  • natural flavors;
  • caffeine.

To prepare 1 liter of Coca-Cola you need 2 liters of water.

The exact formula of Coca-Cola natural spices (in addition to the ingredients listed above) is a trade secret. The original copy of the formula is stored in the main vault of SunTrust Bank in Atlanta. Its predecessor, Trust Company, was the insurer of The Coca-Cola Company’s IPO in 1919.

A popular myth is that only two managers can have access to a formula, and everyone can only have access to half of the formula. The truth is that although Coca-Cola has a rule that restricts access to only two managers, each of them knows the formula entirely, and the other, in addition to the established two, was aware of the manufacturing process.

Health effects

No specific negative effect of the drink on the body has not been reliably established. The effect of Coca-Cola on health is no different from other similar products. So, it is not recommended to drink highly carbonated drinks to persons suffering from gastrointestinal diseases, in particular, acute and chronic gastritis, including those accompanied by increased gastric secretion, gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer, disorders of the biliary tract, pancreatic diseases. Patients with diabetes should be aware of the sugar content in the classic types of drink.

There is mention of a 2004 study, during which a link was established between regular daily consumption of sweetened beverages and an increase in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes. In 2013, it was found that the effect of conventional dosages of sweetened soft drinks on the development of diabetes is not statistically significant.

Hong Kong residents use hot Coca-Cola as a cold medicine.

Coca-Cola is the longest-running sponsor of the Olympic Games. Coca-Cola’s collaboration with the Olympic movement began in 1928.

Drawing Santa Claus for The Coca-Cola Company in 1931, a Swedish-born artist, Haddon Sandblom, portrayed him not as a cheerful old elf, as it was then accepted, but as a cheerful old man with rosy cheeks and a thick white beard. Years later, Santa Sandbloma became the well-known and beloved personification of the Christmas and New Year holidays.
