National Have A Coke Day

This drink holiday is held each year on May 8. Coke is short for Coca-Cola, a carbonated soft drink. On March 27, 1944, Coca-Cola Company registered the trademark of Coca-Cola. Coke products can be found in over 200 countries around the world that consumes over 1.8 million servings of coke beverages a day. Roughly 12 ounces (360 mL) of soda is one serving.

Other than Sweet Tea, my other favorite beverage is Coca-Cola. I actually prefer bottled or canned Coke over Fountain.
