Tip & Tee: The World of Coca Cola

Travel tees make the BEST souvenirs! In Tip & Tee, I show off an awesome tee I picked up on my trip and share a trip tip for that destination.

In my opinion, the BEST way to enjoy an ice cold Coca Cola is in a glass bottle. For some reason, it just tastes better that way!

As you tour this museum of all things Coke, be sure to pay attention not only the to the history of the beverage but also to the development of the bottle.

Soda Fountain

Coca Cola was originally sold as a fountain drink. However, in 1894, shop owner, Joseph Biedenharn began selling it in glass bottles, so customers could enjoy Coke at home.

The Coca Cola bottle itself has its own story! Prior to 1916, the bottle was not standardized, so be sure to look for your state’s bottle!

In 1915, the Coca Cola brand took a big step forward. A new and distinct green glass bottle was designed. And by 1928, the bottle surpassed the fountain!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. And, Coca Cola has been flattered a lot! But, this delicious drink still stands out in the crowd!
