NATIONAL CARBONATED BEVERAGE WITH CAFFEINE DAY

A unique food holiday is celebrated annually on November 19, it is National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day.

Some people cannot have caffeine due to medical reasons, some choose to avoid caffeine for their own reasons and then there are the millions of people who like their caffeine very much.  The same is true with the carbonation in beverages.  Today’s celebration combines the two of them together.

  • In 1767, Englishman Joseph Priestly suspended a bowl of distilled water above a beer vat at a local brewery in Leeds, England which led to the discovery of a method of infusing water with carbon dioxide to make carbonated water.  Priestly’s invention of carbonated water is the major and the defining component of most soft drinks.

  • Caffeine acts as a central nervous system stimulant, temporarily warding off drowsiness and restoring alertness.  Ninety percent of adults in North America consume caffeine daily.   Some people notice sleep disruption  after drinking beverages containing caffeine while others see no disturbance at all.

Today, celebrate National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day with YOUR favorite carbonated, caffeine beverage.

We don't drink soda.  But I do remember enjoying a Fresca or two back in the day.

 None- I can't stand the carbonation. Those little bubbles annoy my tongue!
