7 Up Logo – The 7 Up (pronounced Seven up) is a pop -flavored lemon – lime created in the early 1920s by Charles Leiper Grigg (en). The brand franchise is owned by Dr Pepper Snapple Group in the United States, to Britvic in the UK, C & C Ireland and PepsiCo elsewhere in the world.
The drink was ranked the third best selling soft drink in the 1940s behind the unbeatable Coca-Cola and Pepsi. The mascot Fido Dido will appear in the 1980 and 2004 the brand launched the 7UP light.
The name 7 Up is not established with certainty. The most likely hypothesis is that it is the atomic weight of the element lithium. Indeed, the origin, up 7 contained lithium citrate, a mood stabilizer used in bipolar disorder and personality was presented as a cure for a hangover. Moreover, the original name of the drink was “7 Up Lithiated Lemon-Lime.”
Other stories circulating: its creator would have named the drink after seeing a cattle brand with the number 7 and the letter u. Other rumors suggest that the name reflects the seven flavors and carbonization of the drink, the bottle contains 7 ounces, or that the designer has found the name while playing dice. Others think the name implies that the drink takes over the moon with the Up and 7 meaning “mounted high.” Sprite, which is produced by the company Coca-Cola, 7 UP drew on, both of which are similar to lemonade, but with different shades of lemon.
