Coca-Cola Classic is a carbonated soft drink sold in stores, restaurants, and vending machines throughout the world. It is produced by The Coca-Cola Company of Atlanta, Georgia, and is often referred to simply as Coke (a registered trademark of The Coca-Cola Company in the United States since March 27, 1944). Originally intended as a patent medicine when it was invented in the late 19th century by John Pemberton, Coca-Cola was bought out by businessman Asa Griggs Candler, whose marketing tactics led Coke to its dominance of the world soft-drink market throughout the 20th century.
The purpose of the "Classic" designation is unclear. Perhaps it is meant to clarify that the long-discontinued New Coke has not made an exclusive resurrection at Jack in the Box.
On occasion, Jack in the Box has sold exclusive Coke-branded glasses.
