I can not believe I missed this fact yesterday!!
"May 8th, 1886 - Atlanta pharmacist John Styth Pemberton invented the flavor syrup for Coca-Cola."
What an important day in history.
When I get all of the boxes unpacked in the garage, I will share with you my huge collection of Coca Cola items. I have collected them for probably 50 years.
I have lots of vintage Coca Cola bottles in all shapes and sizes.
I had to laugh because many years ago (32 to be exact), Coke announced they were doing away with the original Coke and doing a New Coke. I went into hysterics.
One night another couple and John and I went all over Tulsa buying up the 2 Liter Cokes - the original.
My house was stocked with Cokes everywhere. I even wrote them a letter telling them what I thought.
They did answer my letter and told me they realized true Coke drinkers were not accepting the New Coke very well and they would be bringing back the original.
I had two 2 Liters left when the original Coke came back.
So, yesterday was a very significant day for me.
