In 1904 the company’s headquarters in Atlanta began selling Coca-Cola pepsin gum.
In 1943, Coca-Cola put out an advertisement urging people to buy U. S. War Bonds and War Stamps.Coca-Cola strongly aligned itself with the war effort. The newly created elf-looking Coca-Cola mascot named “Sprite” appears in the new advertisements.
Coca Cola (GmbH) were the German bottlers for Coke under the leadership of the CEO Max Keith. After the US entered the war in 1941 Max Keith couldn’t get Coca Cola syrup from America to make Coke so he invented a new drink out of the ingredients he had available to him and made it specifically for the Nazi market and the Third Reich. The drink was called Fanta.
Fanta was acquired by The Coca-Cola Company in 1960.
