Coca-Cola Girl, The

The official title of singer/entertainer Anita Bryant when she was under contract to the Coca-Cola Company from 1963-67 to promote its products on radio and television.

Note: The soft drink Coca-Cola (then just a soda fountain beverage) was invented in 1886 by Atlanta, Georgia pharmacist Dr. John S. Pemberton.

The Museum of Coca-Cola, a restored candy store located at 1107 Washington Street in Vicksburg, Mississippi celebrates the site where in 1894 Joseph A. Biedenharn first bottled what was to become Coca-Cola.

Over the years, Coca-Cola has produced a number of catchy slogans including “The pause that refreshes” (1929); It’s the real thing” (1941); and “Coke is it” (1982).
