Was Coca-cola Always a Green Colour?

The Coca-Cola company says that the original recipe for Coca-Cola soft drink was never green. The company goes on to say that people might have come up with this idea because the first glass bottles that held the drink were green.

Since 1886, when it was first sold, Coca-Cola has always been brown. There are also many other rumours about Coca-Cola, such as the one that the formula has small amounts of alcohol. Again, the Coca-Cola company has said in an official statement that this rumour is not true. It also says that the soda doesn’t have any pork in it or the bug dye cochineal.
