    I thought only the original recipe coca cola was good for kids!

    Coca has a lot of vitamins and calcium

    The ad's a bit over the top. But years ago, Cola without carbonation was given to children for upsets stomachs and indigestion. Often times after eating products like Canned Hamburger.

    Yes, largely because the inventor of Coca - Cola John Pemberton, who was a morphine addict, wished to develop a non-narcotic drink for himself that he and his Atlanta drug store customers could enjoy. Due largely to Fulton County Georgia anti-drug legislation of the mid-1880s, cocaine wasn't covered under this new law - but alcohol and morphine was.

    i mostly just remember 'see the usa in your chevrolet' and doublemint gum, and some silly cigarete that had two filters, and dentine sugarless gum.
    and are you still using that greasy kid stuff? brill cream, a little dab i'll do ya.
    and there was always the brand x comparisons for laundry detergents, and pretty much everything else.
    oh and miss clairol, and tan don't burn, get a coppertone tan,
    and little squirt.
    there was ready killowatt, and later mr zip.
    and the valley of the ho ho ho, green giant
    and trains don't take time, they give it
    and take the bus and leave the driving to us
    and old spice means quality, said the captain to the boson, ask for the label with the ship that sails the ocean.
    gerber baby food, and walter kimble fives
