Trivia: Where does the name “cola” originate from?
A type of sugar
A type of nut
Correct Answer: A type of nut
So why is this answer correct? : The kola nut is a caffeine-containing nut in the cocoa family. It’s native to Africa, but mostly cultivated in the American tropics, where it was dried and sold to be used in medicines and sodas. This is where Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola got their names. Today, American and European soft drink companies use synthetic chemicals and flavors that resemble the taste of the kola nut.
