Description: There are many Pepsi variants, including Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max, Pepsi Samba, Pepsi Blue and Pepsi Gold.
Pepsi-Cola was first made in New Bern, North Carolina in the United States in the early 1890s by pharmacist Caleb Bradham. On August 28, 1898 , "Brad's drink" was changed to "Pepsi-Cola" and later trademarked on June 16, 1903. There are several theories on the origin of the word "pepsi".
The only two discussed within the current PepsiCo website are the following: 1) Caleb Bradham bought the name "Pep Kola" from a local competitor and changed it to Pepsi-Cola. 2) "Pepsi-Cola" is an anagram for "Episcopal" - a large church across the street from Bradham's drugstore. There is a plaque at the site of the original drugstore documenting this, though PepsiCo has denied this theory.
Diet Pepsi and Caffeine Free Diet Pepsi have a light, crisp and refreshing taste with zero calories and fat.

Britvic Soft Drinks has a long and rich history that extends back to Victorian England and further. The British Vitamin Products Company - from which Britvic takes its abbreviated name - was founded in the mid-nineteenth century in the market town of Chelmsford in Essex. The company was then little more than a home business run from a chemist's shop, not unusual for a soft drinks producer of the time. Soon the company was producing all kinds of originally concocted soft drinks, including lemonades, mineral waters, tonics and non-alcoholic ales.
It wasn't until 1938 that the Britvic range of juices that we know today were first produced - thanks to Ralph Chapman, owner of the British Vitamin Products Company. Recognising that the Great Depression in the UK meant that many of his poorest customers needed an affordable source of Vitamin C, he found a way to bottle fruit juices so that they stayed fresh for longer without the addition of preservatives. His juices were sold in small glass bottles which ensured easy transportation. The idea was immediately successful but it was only in 1949 that the Britvic brand was formally launched into the marketplace.
