The name has changed a few times throughout the years
it was called to Pepsi in 1961, and in select areas of North America, PepsiCola Made with Real Sugar as of 2014.
The drink Pepsi was first introduced as Brad's Drink in New Bern, North Carolina, United States, in 1893 by Caleb Bradham, who made it at his drugstore.
It was renamed Pepsi Cola in 1898, named after the digestive enzyme pepsin, and kola nuts used in the recipe.
The original recipe also included sugar and vanilla.
Bradham sought to create a fountain drink that was appealing and would aid in digestion and boost energy.
In 1903, Bradham moved the bottling of Pepsi-Cola from his drugstore to a rented warehouse.
That year, Bradham sold 7,968 gallons of syrup.
The next year, Pepsi was sold in six-ounce bottles, and sales increased to 19,848 gallons.
In 1909, automobile, race pioneer Barney Oldfield was the first celebrity to endorse Pepsi-Cola, describing it as:
a bully drink...Refreshing, invigorating, a fine bracer before a race.
The advertising theme Delicious and Healthful was then used over the next two decades.
In 1926, Pepsi has received its first logo redesign since the original design of 1905.
