Last week I asked our facebook page – coolfacts fans to suggest me a topic. I didn’t knew I was about to get a series of topic ideas. One of those ideas was to write facts about companies which are famous! I loved that idea and chose Coca Cola to write about for now. I hope you would love to read a few cool facts about coca cola.

Coca Cola is a very successful company, but I believe that their products are very harmful, especially if you drink many sodas. I don't know why North Korea and Cuba haven't approved it. It's possibly because of their governments and their theories. Finally, I would like to say that I have heard many rumors about the secret formula. I think that all the Directors of the Departments know about it. Especially the Board of the Directors. I am very sure for this.
