Do you remember 8 packs of 16 ounce bottles? When I was about 19 or 20 I had a source for 3 pack cases at wholesale prices. $2.40 per case; deposit included. Ahh LikeLiked by 1 person Reply No, I don’t recall that. The store today had 8 packs of 7.5 oz bottles of “cola,” but that’s not enough. 16 is probably just right.

They make about as much sense as those 6 oz. bottles of beer sold in the mid 70’s. LikeLiked by 1 person Sounds like a sample before I buy the pint to me. 😉 LikeLiked by 1 person You are so right.

Even with all its hippie Age of Aquariusness LOL. See how Coke brings people together. Everyone gets diabetes! 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Haha! LikeLiked by 1 person I’ve never seen Sprite boy before. I thought he looked a bit creepy in this ad – reminding me in fact of the climactic scene of ‘Don’t Look Now’ – but checked out the other links you provided to see if I felt differently. Nope. Creepy. Coke wasn’t quite the institution during my Scottish childhood that it clearly was in the US. A drink of Coca Cola was rare for me. My big brothers would treat me yo an ice cold bottle when made to take me along to their snooker club. It’s not quite the same from aluminum or plastic. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Hmm. I haven’t heard of that movie. He is creepy; I’ll give you that. What did you drink when you went out to eat? We either had Coke or iced tea. And the high school vending machine had Diet Coke for all the girls trying to stay slim. Probably best that you didn’t start drinking it young. When I get it at restaurants, I always get a refill during the meal and one to go, so probably 100x the sugar I need.
