On April 23, 1985, Coca-Cola, amid much
publicity, attempted to change the formula of
the drink with "New Coke".
On July 5, 2005, it was revealed that Coca-Cola would resume
operations in Iraq for the first time since the Arab League boycotted the
company in 1968.
In April 2007, in Canada, the name "Coca-Cola Classic" was changed
back to "Coca-Cola". The word "Classic" was removed because "New
Coke" was no longer in production, eliminating the need to differentiate
between the two. The formula remained unchanged.
In January 2009, Coca-Cola stopped printing the word "Classic" on the labels of
16-US-fluid-ounce (470 ml) bottles sold in parts of the south eastern United
States. The change is part of a larger strategy to rejuvenate the product's image.
The word "Classic" was removed from all Coca-Cola products by 2011.

introduced as “Brad’s Drink”.

1898 then to Pepsi in 1961.

Pepsi was first introduced in New Bern, North
Carolina, United States.

where the drink was sold.

Present situation of Pepsi
Pepsi gained popularity following the introduction in
1936 of a 12-ounce bottle. With a radio advertising
campaign featuring the jingle "Pepsi-Cola hits the
spot / Twelve full ounces, that's a lot / Twice as much
for a nickel, too / Pepsi-Cola is the drink for you",
arranged in such a way that the jingle never ends.
Pepsi encouraged price-watching consumers to
switch, obliquely referring to the Coca-Cola standard
of 6.5 ounces per bottle for the price of five cents (a
nickel), instead of the 12 ounces Pepsi sold at the
same price. Coming at a time of economic crisis, the
campaign succeeded in boosting Pepsi's status. From
1936 to 1938, Pepsi-Cola's profits doubled.
