Did you know the background of the well-known Cola-flavored beverage?

The hidden significance behind the name of the well-known soft drink, PEPSI, has stunned aficionados.

The first Pepsi was created in 1898 under the name "Brad's Drink" by North Carolina chemist Caleb Bradham.

According to the LA Times, Pepsi was called after the term dyspepsia, which is a synonym for indigestion.

Bradham took the decision in spite of his disagreement with the too sweet Cola flavoring, in order to highlight the "health benefits" of the drink.

However, it was revealed in March 2023 that PepsiCo's traditional carbonated drinks now contain 57% less sugar.

The pharmacist marketed the beverage as a means of improving digestion and increasing vitality.

There have been claims that it was also called after the digestive enzyme pepsin, even though pepsin isn't a component in the recipe.

The origins of the Pepsi moniker astonished many of its admirers, as seen by one individual who said, "I was today years old when I learned that."

Another said, "I had no idea!" and stated that they were unaware that the name had a meaning.

It comes after fans of Heineken were also taken aback upon discovering three secret symbols in the company's logo.

Have you noticed the slanted "e" letters? The Dutch trademark is characterized by its oval form, red star, green backdrop, and white text on a black banner.

The label dates back to at least 1883, and it was changed each time Heineken received a prize—a gold medal in 1875, an honorary diploma in Amsterdam in 1883, and a grand prix in Paris in 1889, to name a few.

The first time the red star appeared on a label was when a new rectangular label with a huge red star was introduced to the Dutch market in the 1930s.

The export label, which kept its oval shape and green color with a black bar, also received the same symbol.

The company changed the red star to white with a thin red border as the red star was linked to communism in many nations after World War Two.

The crimson border of the star on all export labels grew increasingly noticeable over time until it turned red once more in 1991.

Since then, the label has evolved further to satisfy consumer preferences.

The Heineken Collection Foundation clarified in a post that the changes "are not always directly noticed by the consumer".

"Nevertheless the e’s will always continue to smile," it continued.

It has also taken some time for customers to understand the significance of LG's logo.

In addition to the L and G that make up the LG logo, you might have seen an amiable-looking face.

The "L" represents the stick figure's nose, and the "G" that swoops around the exterior gives the impression that it is grinning.

Inside the letter G, there seems to be a ridge that has been carved at an angle, much as when you cut your fingertip with a knife.
