Those were the good old days when you could buy a six ounce bottle of Coca-Cola for only five cents. Now it usually cost over a dollar to buy a 20 ounce bottle of Coca-Cola.
It is amazing that the price of Coca-Cola remained at five cents from 1886-1959. Not many products stay the same price over such a long period. Cokes out of the bottles back then seemed to taste better than the cokes out of bottles today but that is just my opinion.
This article tells more about the history of Coca-Cola and the five cent bottle:
If only Coca-Cola could come up with a diet Coca-Cola that actually tasted good. Usually with diet colas the drinker has to brace themselves for the bad taste they know is coming when they take the first sip.
Many years ago I drank a cherry coke from a soda fountain and until this day I have never encountered that taste again in a cherry coke product sold on a store shelf. The only way to get that sweet cherry flavor these days is to go to a convenience store that has cherry shots as an option in their soft drink dispensing machines. The first time I added the cherry shots to the coke or root beer it was like going back fifty years in time to recapture that special flavor I had missed for so long.
