Let's start with a bit of trivia about 7-Up. Notice the eight little bubbles on the bottle on the right? Yeah, long ago in the 1930's or 1940's someone in the bottling plant probably said something like, shouldn't this stuff be called Eight-Up? But, since that would mean
That doesn't mean that all the bubbles on the buildings and trucks had to be eliminated.
The old metal coolers! Didn't every family have one and didn't it have some kind of advertising on it? Ours said Coleman, which must have been an ancient soft drink.
And wasn't Dad a hoot after guzzling a half a dozen 7-Ups? When he played circus clown, the laughs came fast and furious.
But then maybe Dad was spiking his 7-Up with gin. Who didn't? I mean it was the mixer of choice until Canada Dry came up with Collins mix. Of course some people like their gin on the rocks.
Now Grandma J would be amiss if she didn't mention the nutritional benefits of weaning baby with 7-Up. And just in case you couldn't get enough 7-Up as your beverage choice......
They created a 7-Up Cook Book filled with a plethora of tasty recipes!!
