Actually, it was during this very year of 1955 that Coca-Cola expanded its packaging from the standard 6.5-ounce contour bottle to include 10-, 12- and 26-ounce contour bottles in the U.S., giving consumers packaging options to meet their needs. My need for a Coke would never be 6.5. That’s like going to a Mexican restaurant and eating one chip with salsa.

This pinterest pic is trying to make the point that Coke adds belly fat.


I drink Coke. I have belly fat. But I also have no discipline and an overpowering sweet tooth, coupled with an inability to disobey Sprite Boy (who was only used in Coke ads,  and had been discontinued by the time Sprite came on the market in 1961).

So guess what? I’m taking some home today.

    I agree a whole 100%. Six and one half ounces is just enough to make you mad. I also am lacking self discipline. I used to have some but I laid it down somewhere and can’t remember where.

  2. “Coke adds life. Have a Coke and a smile.” It certainly brings back memories.

    Had one today myself. Great pics and prose Kerbey. I often forget how different the products were many years ago.

    As an aside Kerbey I did a guest post over at Mark Bialczak’s https://markbialczak.com/2016/09/04/im-sorry/comment-page-1/#comment-83008 I would be honored if you could find the time to drop by for a read and comment. Thank You.
