Birthplace of Pepsi Cola

Wishlisted by Matt Mayer

Caleb Bradham was forced to drop out from the University of Maryland School of Medicine when his father’s business went bankrupt. Returning to his native North Carolina he opened a drugstore in New Bern, NC which also housed a soda fountain. In 1893 he invented a blend of kola nut extract, vanilla, and "rare oils" and called it “Brad’s Drink”. Five years later he came up with a new name, based on the fact he thought his drink helped with digestion like the enzyme pepsin - “Pepsi Cola”.
