A history of coca-cola taglines: From ‘drink coca-cola’ to ‘taste the feeling’

From ‘drink coca-cola’ to ‘taste the feeling’: A history of coca-cola taglines

Since the coca-cola was born in 1886, it has changed its taglines several times making the history of coca-cola taglines so vast.

Some of them may be familiar to you depending upon the generation you belong to. The first official tagline of the coca-cola came out at the time when John Stith Pemberton an American pharmacist, inventor of the coca-cola and his bookkeeper and partner, Frank Robinson were running an ad in Atlanta daily journal. The ad said that Coke was “Delicious! Refreshing! Exhilarating! Invigorating!” And, after that, “Delicious and Refreshing” became the first official advertising slogan.
