Coca-Cola is a sweet drink. You can buy Coca-Cola in shops, restaurants and pubs in 200 countries. Coca-Cola is an official name, but people usually say only Coke. The name Coke started to be an official name of Coca-Cola on March 27, 1944.

Coca-Cola started in 1886 in the US. And Coca-Cola was a medicine. The drink was good, but not many people drank it. Then one American businessman bought the recipe for the drink. He made Coca-Cola very popular. He was very good at marketing and he knew how to sell the product.

Now, the Coca-Cola company makes only a concentrated drink. And they sell this concentrated drink to many companies in the world. These companies make Coca-Cola from the concentrated drink. Only these companies can make Coca-Cola in their countries.

The recipe for Coca-Cola is very important. The recipe was in a bank for many years. Many people know some parts of the recipe, but only two managers of the company know all the recipe. 

You can see a funny short film about Coca-Cola in the video.
