PepsiCo has launched a retro soda called ‘Caleb’s Kola’, packaged in 10oz glass bottles. The name is in reference to Caleb Bradham, a pharmacist from North Carolina credited with creating with formula for Pepsi in the 1890s.
According to the brand’s website, the drink is only being sold at select CostCo locations in Maryland, New York, Virginia and Washington DC.
A 10oz bottle of Caleb’s Kola has 110 calories and 29 grams of sugar, according to the site. The drink is made with cane sugar, kola nut extract and a ‘special blend of spices’.
Caleb’s Kola is apparently being positioned as a ‘craft’ soda, with its website using the hashtag #honorincraft.
