History of Advertising on Common Every Day Items

Tin serving trays were one of the very first branding/marketing ideas implemented by this international leader in cold beverage. Later this common day marketing would extend to the collectibles of Coca Cola Barbie.

John Styth Pemberton - Inventor Coca Cola

Coca-Cola was invented by a pharmacist - his name was John Styth Pemberton. The African kola tree was the original ingredient. The Coca Kola was the original name and the name was change to Coca Cola to allow for the two consistent "c"s. Pemberton included in his kola, the caffeine from the kola tree see and cocaine. The story goes that in order to effectively combat the bitterness of his drink he used to cure sluggishness, he added the following ingredients:

  • sugar,

  • vanilla,

  • caramel,

  • orange,

  • lemon,

  • nutmeg,

  • lime juice,

  • cinnamon,

  • coriander oil

  • and a small amount of cocaine coming from the coca leaves and kola nuts.


The man whom the world can thank for Coca-Cola is a doctor, a chemist and a pharmacist by the name of John Styth Pemberton.

Dr. John Pemberton - Inventor

Dr. John Pemberton sadly would not live to see the notoriety of his recipe. He sold his interest and died shortly thereafter. Decades and centuries later, we continue, to thank Dr. Pemberton for his invention. While the formula has changed and the cocaine taken out - we still love this sweet and caffeinated drink.

The Backstory of My Personal Interest in Coca Cola Barbie Dolls

My mother was a drum majorette. The instant I saw this photo of a Barbie doll drum majorette, I was stunned. For you see, I have a photo of my mother that very closely resembles this doll. From the hair style right down to the green eyes, this Coca Cola Barbie doll is my mother! I bet the doll even has my Mother's red finger nails! That was her favorite nail polish! Sadly, my mother is no longer with us here on earth - I would love to share this photo with her. I, myself, inherited Dad's looks not Mom's "Barbie dolls looks and figure". Life is not always fair. Like all girls I greatly admired Barbie. Like all girls I dreamed of growing up and looking like Barbie or my Mother. Reality set in and I am me - happy to be me but always happy to dream of the Barbie doll perfection.

Coca Cola Fun Commercials


Barbie Dolls and Coca Cola to me is happiness. My favorite slogans are too many to list here. I thought I would share a couple of Coca Cola's fun commercials along with some great quotes on happiness:


Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso

"When I meet people from other cultures I know that they too want happiness and do not want suffering, this allows me to see them as brothers and sisters."



Ben Franklin

"The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself."




Mother Teresa


"Joy is a net of love by which you can catch souls."



"Peace begins with a smile."



"If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway."


"Every time you smile at someone, it is an action of love, a gift to that person, a beautiful thing."

Such an interesting hub. In my life experience, Mom didn't let us drink coca cola on a regular basis; it was considered a treat. Also, for some reason, Mom did not want me, her only daughter, to get hooked on barbie dolls either. Things have certainly changed for the next generation. My daughter had about 15 barbie dolls (Lets just say, I got to play with them late in life!) And by the way, I like coca cola better than the other cola products, especially Vanilla Coca cola, mixed with a little milk! :o)
