Fact of the Day: Soda Dispute

A man named Claud Hatcher once owned a grocery store and had a dispute with Coca-cola over how much he was giving them for their soda. It didn't end well and it had Hatcher coming up with his own soda which was called Royal Crown (RC) Cola.

I used to drink Royal Crown cola when I was a kid. Haven't seen it around for years. An inferior version of Coca-Cola, to be sure.

I once read somewhere that Coca Cola is the nr 2 most used word in the world, after okay. That's how strong the brand is. I, myself, belong to the Coke fans. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and leaving me a kind comment.
