Coca-Cola carbonation an accident?

Did the iconic soft drink Coca-Cola become carbonated because a soda jerk accidentally mixed Coca-Cola syrup with soda water? Nope. Soda water was used from the beginning as a base for the beverage. The rumor survives likely due to peoples’ desires to celebrate a lucky development that turned successful. http://www.snopes.com/cokelore/carbonate.asp
