Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola


Pepsi-Cola was born in New Bern, N.C. back in the 1890's when Caleb O. Bradham, a young pharmacist, entertained his friends at the soda fountain by creating different kinds of soft drinks. One drink he made was so popular that people began to call it "Brad's Drink." It wasn't long before Bradham realized that he had a commercial success on his hands. So on August 28, 1898 he gave his drink a new name — PEPSI-COLA.
