Which beverage has been around longer coke or pepsi

It's Coke as it began in 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.

"Brad's Drink," a combination of carbonated water, sugar, vanilla, rare oils and cola nut was made in 1893 and became an overnight sensation. On August 28, 1898 it was renamed "Pepsi-Cola" and received its first logo. Despite its name and hearsay, pepsin was never an ingredient of Pepsi-Cola.

Many drinks are nothing more than a blood sugar spike waiting to happen. But sometimes you need a little flavor or (gasp!) fizz that water can't provide. Here are 20 drinks you'll feel good about gulping at Prevention.com.
