That sugary, zingy cola flavour has been around since 1886, when the curiosity of an Atlanta pharmacist, Dr John S. Pemberton, led him to create a distinctive tasting soft drink that could be sold at soda fountains. And the rest, as they say, is history. Since then there have been many variations on the cola flavour, in drinks as well as lollies. Sour Cola Bottles by Wizard is said to be the most successful imitation, and you know what they say. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
