History of Afri Cola
Afri Cola was first introduced in Germany in 1878 by Dr. Heinrich von Führen-Haimendorf. In 1920, he decided to switch to using cocaine instead of caffeine. This new formula led to an increase in sales but caused some problems with the public. Some people claimed that it tasted too much like coffee, while others found it too bitter. By 1927, the company had switched back to caffeine, because coke wasn’t selling well.
It is now sold under different brand names throughout Africa including Benoni Cola, South African Cola, and Tshwane Cola. Its distinctive label features a cartoon character named Afri who wears glasses and a bowtie. He drinks from an African-style cola bottle.
