The King Of Cola
I was asked to bring soft drinks to a party recently, and something occurred to me in the grocery store--I didn't see any Royal Crown Cola. Not that I was planning to buy it. Which is maybe the problem.
Even years ago, back when I drank cola on a semi-regular basis, I rarely had RC. (Was it just as unavailable then?)
But I remember when I was at the University of Chicago. Sometimes we'd go to Harold's Chicken Shack, and they had a cola machine that only offered RC.
So I would buy it, and perhaps my palate is poor, but I couldn't tell the difference. How did it become such a poor third to the Big Two?
I also wonder, did Harold have some sort of deal with Royal Crown, because I don't think I've seen it in too many other vending machines.
