Coca-Cola Turns 125

Posted by Michael Waltzer on May 6, 2011 04:00 PM

Happy Birthday Coca-Cola, Happy Birthday to you!

Many American homes will be celebrating Mother’s Day Sunday, but the Atlanta-based soft drink maker will mark the day by kicking off a year-long promotional calendar of events to mark the milestone.

In the US, the day will be the launch of Coca-Cola's "125 Years of Summer Fun" campaign, featuring commemorative bottles, new 1.25 liter packaging, and ads.

Find out how the 125-year-old brand has managed to stay relevant throughout the years and read more about 125 Years of Happiness in our Coca-Cola birthday story – including a look at some of the brand’s most memorable ads.


Joseph United States says:

Remaining relevant to the public for a century and a quarter is no easy task for any brand. Kudos to Coke for staying "classic" all these years. Here's hoping they've got at least another 125 years left in them!
