Facts Check Verdict: False
News Verification: Many users on social media shared and tweeted this quote assuming the information viral on the social media to be true. The viral message states that, “Whenever you feel bad, Just remember that CocaCola only sold 25 bottles the first year”, is not true.
Coca-Cola, or Coke, is a carbonated soft drink manufactured by The Coca-Cola Company. The Coca Cola company was formed in 1886.
The message share on social media is fake, since early in 1886 Coca Cola was sold in glass. The first sales were at Jacob's Pharmacy in Atlanta, Georgia, on May 8, 1886, where it initially sold for five cents a glass.
As per worldofcoca, The first servings of Coca‑Cola were sold for 5 cents per glass. During the first year, sales averaged a modest nine servings per day in Atlanta. Prior to his death in 1888, just two years after creating what was to become the world’s #1-selling sparkling beverage,
Coca-Cola history 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. He created a flavored syrup, took it to his neighborhood pharmacy, where it was mixed with carbonated water and deemed "excellent" by those who sampled it.
Hence to do not believe in the fake motivation.
