History of Coca‑Cola slogans
We take a look at some of the Coca‑Cola slogans used throughout our advertising history
Over the course of our history, we’ve used a wide range of slogans in our Coca‑Cola adverts to help communicate messages about our drinks in a simple, direct and memorable way.
Some of our Coca‑Cola slogans have focused on the quality of the product (remember 1969 tagline ‘It’s the Real Thing’?), while others refer to the drink’s refreshing taste (such as 1929’s ‘The Pause that Refreshes’). Some slogans are based on the part Coca‑Cola can play in entertaining and bringing people together during meal times or social occasions, like ‘Things go better with Coke’.
