Soft Drinks


Many sodas have interesting stories behind them. Dr Pepper for instance, Dr Pepper was invented by a pharmacist in Waco, Texas named Charles Alderton. Alderton worked at a place called Morrison’s Old Corner Drug Store where they sold carbonated drinks Alderton started making his own recipes for soft drinks and came to realize that one became very popular customers often came in to the store asking “ to shoot them a Waco” But Alderton wasn’t the only one that noticed the popularity of his drink Morrison has noticed also and because it was his store he was credited with naming the drink and so he decided to call the new drink Dr Pepper naming it after a friend of his Dr. Charles Pepper. The first appearance of Dr Pepper to the public was in 1904 to 20 million Americans at The World Fair Exposition in St. Louis.

In May, 1886, Coca Cola was invented by Doctor John Pemberton a pharmacist from Atlanta, Georgia. John Pemberton concocted the Coca Cola formula in a three legged brass kettle in his backyard. The name was a suggestion given by John Pemberton’s bookkeeper Frank Robinson. Being a bookkeeper, Frank Robinson also had excellent penmanship. It was he who first scripted “Coca Cola” into the flowing letters which has become the famous logo of today.

The soft drink was first sold to the public at the soda fountain in Jacob’s Pharmacy in Atlanta on May 8, 1886.

About nine servings of the soft drink were sold each day. Sales for that first year added up to a total of about $50. The funny thing was that it cost John Pemberton over $70 in expenses, so the first year of sales were a loss.

Until 1905, the soft drink, marketed as a tonic, contained extracts of cocaine as well as the caffeine-rich kola nut.



Dear Rocky,

I love you.

The way you bark at everything when i put you outside.
The way you splash my mom during bath time.
And how you greet me on Christmas morning,
I love you.
we’ve had you for two years now,
what i love most is your always with me.
I love you
That will never change,
when we move.
and when you get lost,
when you die i will remember you.
I love you


On Easter I went to Dallas because that’s where my grandma lives. She has a big back yard so it was fun to Easter egg hunt, but I only found like 4 or 5 eggs the rest I found I gave to the younger kids so they could feel good about finding a bunch of eggs. We went to church that morning and when we got back we ate a big lunch we had burgers fries an whole bunch of different things. We swam and I got sun burnt it hurt but It didn’t last for long. My grandpa took my dad and I golfing, he has a membership to a big fancy golf club. He beat me and my dad, but I beat my dad I shot an 86. My dads not good at golf but hes not horrible either. When we got back my grandma had snacks and a big tournament set up for the Wii. It was guys against girls they beat us on tennis, but we won every thing else. So it was pretty safe to say we came out on top. That’s what I did on Easter.
