I dipped into my made a favourite folder and found this lovely image of a girl posed upon a creature. The photograph was taken in the Vendee in 2009 where I saw a beautiful merry-go-round, (in French manége). The top was painted in these lovely panels showing marvelous girls and beasts.
So using the letter P as my French link I discovered that Coca Cola created by Dr. John Stith Pemberton originally was a drink called French Wine of Coca, which contained French Bordeaux wine, coca leaves, and caffeine (from the kola nut).
Pemberton (1830-1888) was an American pharmacist, soldier, and inventor.
When Atlanta banned alcohol consumption in 1885, Pemberton needed to change the formula of his French Wine of Coca, removing French wine. He added sugar, citric acid and essential oils of various fruits, and Coca-Cola was created.
Pemberton became partners with Frank Robinson and David Roe, but the partners soon began to quarrel and Pemberton sold his interest in Coca-Cola.
