The trouble began when everything started being supersized including our waistlines.
I HATED COCA COLA,INC. I loved the soda, but hated the company. In the 60s, I worked at Kemp's Hamburgers ( a McDonalds knock off) in Mass. We served Pepsi. There was a big law suit about Coke & Pepsi. If someone came to window and ordered a "Coke", we were required to say, "we don't have Coke, we have Pepsi", would that be Okay?". None of the customers cared, and most were irritated. I got all kinds of flack, because of that.
BTW, even today, it's Coke @McDonalds, and Pepsi@ Burger King.
Me too, I can't remember the last time I had a soda. But back in the day my first choice was also Royal Crown cola. We just called it 'RC' for short.I haven't drunk soda pop in many, many years. As a kid, our back door neighbor worked for a Pepsi distributor and our next door neighbor worked for a Coca-Cola distributor. Although there was always virtually unlimited Coke and Pepsi to be had, my caffiene fix of choice at that time was Royal Crown cola.

Yeah, I remember buying the larger bottle, maybe in the '60s, taking a long pull, and thinking 'WTH IZZISS?!'I definitely agree! ... What they call 'Coke' these days is nothing like the old time stuff.
Missed "JOLT COLA" How well I remember the slogan... "All the sugar, twice the caffeine!"

My late FIL sure cared. If they didn’t say anything, he’d say it tasted funny and send it back. They‘d bring another and then he then ask if it was Pepsi. He knew and was just being cantankerous. It wasn’t the fault of the waitress.we don't have Coke, we have Pepsi", would that be Okay?". None of the customers cared,
