The Coca-Cola formula was invented by Dr. John S. Pemberton in 1886 and was kept as a secret to a small group and the company said it was not written down; contrary to a report last February that a website has a handwritten copy was placed in a book as a recipe.

Apparently, the website claims they have a copy of the list of original ingredients and quantities needed to produce Coca-cola, and showing two lists from different individuals and comparing them with each other.

Back in 1891, Asa Candler became the sole owner of Coca-Cola after purchasing the rights to the business, and was bought by Ernest Woodruff and a group of investors in 1919.
