While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday and the most delicious finds on TV.
It’s Friday and we’re feeling bubbly! November 19 is National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day.
Carbonated water was invented in 1767 by Joseph Priestley, but it wasn’t until the late 18th century that flavors were added to the fizzy beverage. Soft drinks were mainly consumed at a soda fountain until bottled soda became common in the 20th century.
The Coca-Cola Company alone provides more than 1.5 billion servings worldwide every day, though not all are in the carbonated camp.
What’s your favorite kind of caffeinated carbonated beverage?
