"Prices go onto the roof on just about everything now. There are some exceptions used car. prices are easing somewhat. Airfares coming down and a clothing But the question is well.

Oh three one thirteen ten. Kfi am mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios and there are certain sectors. That are being hit particularly hard. Even as social security recipients are going to get a five point nine percent increase. That's that annual cost of living adjustment. Yeah it's going to go up a five point nine percent next year. This is the largest increase since nineteen eighty two coming up this announcement from the social security administration just yesterday but will rising prices actually offset and wipeout that increase. So here's how it will work. The spike will boost retirees monthly payments by ninety two dollars to an estimated average of one thousand six hundred and fifty seven dollars for twenty twenty two. How far can that ninety two dollars stretch. As the cost of just about everything is skyrocketing now mary. Johnson is a social security and medicare policy analyst for the senior citizens league quoted in a piece out of c. n. by tammy lubi. Mary says this would be the highest cost of living adjustment that most beneficiaries living today have ever seen but i she says and for good reason that doesn't mean that if you are one of those beneficiaries one of those recipients that you'll be able to go on a spending spree the reason for the increase is because inflation is soaring to now the roughly seventy million folks who get security including retirees americans with disabilities and others receive a cost of living adjustment or cola each year. It's based on a one year increase in inflation. It's designed to help beneficiaries cope when prices rise in twenty twenty one that adjustment compare and contrast was just one point three percent that translated. Don't spend it all in one place into a roughly twenty dollars. A month increase for retirees on social security over the past twelve years. If you want to just put this into perspective the boost has averaged one point four percent.

Aligning Your Brand and Personal Values to Stand out in the Marketplace

"Today's world we have to stand out. We must stand out. So how can we align both our brands and our personal values that will allow us to stand out in the marketplace. Today i love that question. John you know. I've spent realistically the majority of my life being an entrepreneur at eight years old. I was knocking on doors selling boy scout stuff so i can fun trips by ten. I was taking candy from the candy store and selling it on the streets like literature survive at thirteen. Even though it's not great. I did sell drugs because i had to survive. And i've always been thinking about branding and marketing and you stand out in the marketplace. Ever since i was little because literally meant survival. And today i've been very very fortunate to work with companies like coca cola red bull for roses lynn's baby and tons other and of course my own brand think unbroken when you understand this about branding and marketing and standing out in the marketplace that your values can be the cornerstone for what people cradle alignment with. Then you can stand above those who do not have them. Values are everything. My values personally also correspond with the brand values of my business honesty kindness leadership self. Because i'm always thinking about who. I am every single day that allows me to parlay at with the brand that way when i'm approaching the ford facing marketing. I know exactly the message that i'm delivering if you do not know your values my challenge for us to figure that out as soon as humanly possible. I wouldn't even go to bed tonight unless you can decide. Who am i. And what do i stand for. Why because it's the old adage if you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything and having values individual and whether or not they correspond with your brand give you the ability to put your feet down in cement. The beginning of a legacy. Because what i'm always thinking about is when you look back and you think about the choices and decisions you made over the course of the last six months john. Were they alignment with your values. Were they in alignment with the brand. Were they in alignment with your mission because if you filter everything through your values i whatever that value may be for you and for your brand then you know that you will always be making the right choices the right decisions and choosing right actions.

Mexican Coke (MM #3755)

"The Maison with Kevin Nation. If you live anywhere with a growing Hispanic population, when you hear Mexican Coke, you get excited. I don't mean cocaine talking about Coca Cola because there's a difference between a Mexican Coca-Cola and a regular American Coca-Cola. It's all about the sugar that is used in America. They use high fructose corn syrup to sweeten a Coca-Cola in Mexico, bottle down there. It's all about pure cane sugar. It's the way Coca-Cola used to be back in the olden days but we switched to corn syrup. I think in the 1960s and 1970s and I used to think for sure it didn't matter. It was about the same thing. Really what, what is the Mexican Coke? Always comes in a glass bottle, which does make it colder, allows it to be colder than the plastic bottles of the cans. But when I had my first Mexican Coke a few years back, I was sold. It's not quite as sweet as the high fructose, corn syrup Americanized version of Coca-Cola, but there's something special, there's something refreshing and yes, it's the combination of being in the bottle and being the right temperature, and being just the right sweetness, Mexican Coca-Cola. If you ever see one on a menu, it's worth the extra money. Trust me on this month.

I gear right. That's the first gear right right right here. Getting the right right. Let's what is what is right right right. What is that first gear. How does it connect to strategy. Let's talk about that real quick. Absolutely right right right is about having the right people in the right roles with the right capabilities and and so you know the the idea that you can have a strategy but without the right people it's going to be really hard to execute and if people don't have the right capabilities It's going to be hard to execute that strategy Or if you've got you have good people when We we knew we. We knew that we had this opportunity. We had just gotten into Refreshment putting the m you know in the plastic bottle water you know back in like nineteen ninety four ninety five and we could see that business taking off at that particular point in time coca cola and pepsi. Were not in the bottled water. Business business was just too small right but we also knew that there was a at the time with with our with our growth. We knew there was a point in time at which they were going to jump into the bottled water business and we also knew that we didn't actually have the talent to be able to compete against them effectively especially in in our leadership levels. And so you know right people in the right roles with the right capabilities. We knew we needed to go. Recruit different people who fit our strategy number one and number two who were gonna fit our values and our values around honesty integrity teamwork building respect The that were absolutely critical to us providing the leadership to our team that we were anticipated. We were going to need to have that five now. We we didn't know it was going to be five full growth over seven years at the time That that really just kind of happened but it happened because we did get. We did realize we needed a different capability of of leaders a previously. We had hired talent Pretty much off the street. Just technical-functional talent technical-functional talents important but leadership capabilities were hugely important. And so we had to really re gear and rethink. Who do we need to have on our team. How do we go find those people. And then how do we recruit and select them to be on the team to get the talent that we needed to be able to enable that success. Okay so something you say in this book right. Nobody exactly this way. But i'm gonna say you hire to the values. I mean you you hired to the values you'd because i think it's so easy to do in and by the way i appreciate. How much of a big fan. You are michael porter. Because i love competitive advantage and so i love that about you Just one thing. It's not the only thing. I i'd love several things about you but i think hiring values is something that we don't do very a at least in my experience. Coaching businesses is that. Sometimes we try. We're so focused in hiring this great talent that we're not hiring to our values of company in nor do we really know clearly what the values are our company and us us a pretty great questions here. You know what we stand for what we believe. In what are the broad boundaries. You want people to play within enable us to execute a strategy. I think those are really fundamental questions that every business needs to ask right up front. I agree a hundred percent in the way. I would describe it a little bit. Jay is i think there's always a gap in an organization between where you are and where you want to be in. We talked a lot about obviously strategy to houston results. We're talking about the business strategy. How do we position ourselves in the marketplace to be successful but to me. It's it's really kind of that strand of where do we need to be. And how do we need to get their. What's that business strategy. That gets us to that as wayne gretzky would have said you know. I don't skate where the puck is ice skate to where the puck is going to be. That's that's really. The essence of strategy is skating delaware. The puck going to be the. That's the business strategy. But i think there's an intertwined strands of dna with business strategy which we call the cultural strategy. What's what's the culture of the organization that we need to have is going to enable us to execute that business strategy and culture starts with the values. What are we. Stand the the questions that you've posed there. What are we stand for. What are we believe. In what are those widest parameters that. We want people to play within. What were those are values and you know there are some that are i think they should be they. They may not be but they should be almost universal honesty and integrity respect and by respect. I mean deep respect Not just respecting respecting people for who. They are for the diverse. You know background that they bring to the table respecting them as human beings in and trust and trustworthiness i think are universal but but then there's some that can be particular to an organization based upon their strategy. There there are some organizations that have to be absolutely cutting edge innovative right constantly thinking outside the box and then there may be other organizations where it's not about the most innovative you know cutting edge bleeding edge organization but you have to have incredible continuous improvement. We're getting a little bit better tomorrow. And then again day after it again the day after is the key to success will depending upon those those valley. What you need to be successful does drive some of the component of the values of the organization right right and then that drives who you need to look for. Do you need to look for people. Who reminds her. Just you know. They're buzzing all the time and they are the cutting edge bleeding edge creators ordinary people. Who have that continuous improvement mentality. And so the business strategy drives the cultural strategy which drives who you need to go find to help you execute that strategy again. You know you. i'm going to quote you again. You said Critical issues to be clear upfront. About what values. Your organization needs to support the execution of your strategy.

Top Senate Republican slams corporate activism over Georgia law

"There's also big news concerning the fallout from georgia's new laws restricting voter access major league baseball announced. July's all star. Game will be played in denver following its removal from atlanta in protest of the georgia law. Today senate republican leader mitch. Mcconnell traditionally a big supporter of corporate free speech slammed companies like coca cola and delta for speaking out against the law republicans by and pla on planes and drink coca cola too. So what. I'm saying here is i think this is quite stupid to jump in the middle of a highly controversial issue particularly when it got facts. Wrong i'm not talking about political contributions. Most of them contribute to both sides. They have political action committees. That's fine it's legal to appropriate. I support that. I'm talking about taking a position on a highly incendiary and punish in a community or state. Because you don't like a particular law that. I just think it's stupid

Delta Coca Cola among them couple couple of Georgia heavyweights This week in Georgia, there's the Masters. Masters Chairman Fred Ridley is part of his annual pre tournament news conference, noting He's not necessarily in favor of the boycotts that have been talked about, I believe, and I confident that every member of this club believes that voting is an essential Fundamental right in our society. As I stated that any anything that disadvantages anyone to vote is wrong and should be addressed. I'm not going to speak to the specifics of the law, but I do know that I think there's a resolution and I think that resolution is gonna be based on people working together and talking. And having constructive dialogue because that's the way our democratic society works. And while I know you would like to for us to make a proclamation on this, I just don't think that is going to be helpful. To ultimately reboot reaching a resolution. So we would like to encourage people to talk to communicate to let the democratic process work and hopefully these fundamentals and I've stated are so important to us, and I think everyone in this room could be achieved.

"And so as you climb the ladder. It becomes how you mitigate do the company culture understanding it knowing where you fit into it and it coca cola. I had this great opportunity. Because i have been there eighteen months and i thought it was a great opportunity for me to go for that director position and they would allow me to interview them. And what pisses me off. The most is that i had peers that i worked with. I'd seen them work at seen their work and not only did i run circles around them. People actually like working women but again you see these people and they are the ones like. They're usually becky's let's be honest right sleep back and it looks like they're kissing ass and they seem very and why people fafa this shit. I don't know but the thing is the leaders. Never see the bad behavior that they exhibit with their peers and with their cross functional teams people that they can shit on that they should on like. You'll ever see that they only see the perception that this person wants them to see. And so you call it ask. Isn't i call it managing perception of manage it up. But just know. It's all playing the game and working on getting where you trying to go getting your money getting your promotion and so even though i run circles around some of these people. I'm more qualified than some of these people have better education than some of these people. I have better experience than some of these people. I've worked for bigger dog. Companies than the coca cola company versus some of these people. They got the opportunity. And i didn't but i was told it there was such great talent and so many people had applied for director roles and quite frankly i just didn't have the network or relationships that these other people had that is so fucking infuriating and the other part of this. That's infuriating as well. Is that during the same time that we're interviewing for roles and they're picking the people who are put on the interview slates and blah blah blah. Also conversation happening around diversity and diversity targets and talking about you know we only pick the best talent and i'm on the inside watching and being like how is that the best talent so much so i wrote a linked in about it and you can see this article in the show notes. Like put the lincoln the show notes. You can go read it. It is a case study. I have the receipts. And yes. that is the cocoa compounds on. Don't really bring them up. But when you talk about the best talent and then you feel the world with clearly like on paper. that's already a washed from. The jump is not the best talent then even qualified based on the job description bouquet. And they're always buzz going around about coca cola. Talinn their employees through diversity training to be less white which was a complete lie mischaracterization. That is not how that happened. But okay girl you gone. Put them lives on the good twitter. Hope you got your little shine and senior leader telling us you.

"Just the ride just the thing as they say to the coca cola logo so those little pieces of history that come out when you start doing this and you find out coca cola is everywhere and i think i'm more aware of it now by virtue of you and i have in conversation but it is absolutely true that you can find it everywhere and again it feels uniquely american even though it is of course an international worldwide brand the end of the book or towards the end. You talk about the last bottle. And hopefully i'm saying this right. You can correct me. It's basically the last time that has six ounces in change. I want to say is the bottle size but was created in. Sounds like all of it was spoken for as memorabilia. Collectibles that eventually got distributed. I thought that was really interesting. Story and again. I think hearkens to the history and people's attachment to the brand minnesota and another northern story. Not here but the coca cola bottler in winona had been actually bottling the six and a half ounce bottle forever you know. And it's gotten to the point. Nobody was bottling money. War and there was so much consolidation of bottling what had consolidated nobody did the six and a half ounce he continued to do them and there is to this day a demand for that little bottle and you will find it in the stores when it's now the bottles is probably made in mexico or someplace who knows. He decided to make the last run of the six. And a half ounce. He actually had to go out and seek who the that bottle because nobody was making you would get it from collectors and people that had the bottles and so forth to get enough to make that final run a couple thousand and invited people to come. You know to to purchase that last bottle. The last run one of the people that purchase did purchase the very last one and he was a coca cola..

"Very unique company was a mom and dad. They started this basically in the basement and we started building. Led christmas lights and it just got so popular that they bought. What at that. Time was the abandoned coca cola bottling plant in springfield to expand their business and it continued to grow last year. Not not this past christmas. But the christmas before when we were all able to move around that coca cola plant explicit narrow. The home of christmas done right. That's where the name comes from all these beautiful. La do displays it. They make new ones for the home or big commercial. Wonder whatever that plant was part of the community's christmas tour of homes and people just want to see it and people will the lady that the the runs the business told me she said is many people came to see the displays as came to see the plant and they all had memories of the cola plant. So it's a again. It's ed coca cola memory thing but it. If you're in springfield have a reason to be there. It's a chance to see it all coca cola plant and to see some great crossley ship in la dean displays wonderful place. That's actually a great segue to one of my other notes. Something that i felt like was a theme for this book more so even than the last one was the different places that were repurposing the coca cola buildings typically the bottling plants for concert venues and i know another one for like wedding venues a gathering hall which i really liked because again. It's one of these ways to bring people to a specific history but it's made relevant for today's social scene community. Whatever you wanna call it. Can you talk a little bit about those efforts to that are almost neighboring. In alabama one is in andalusia and the other is in dothan. I think they're probably sixty seventy miles apart. The woman dolts and then we've mentioned that earlier is the one where stanhope elmore was actually than the us. The one that started that plant and he in fact was a brother-in-law to william mellon graph of the famous bone graphs coca cola families on his sister had married william mellon grafton williams ideal of the stanhope got involved that he was already helping out and he expanded and when it adults and plant has been purchased by a gentleman who provides as a career protective service.

Christmastime these huge semi is rolling into town. Right they're all decorated. And i mean in that world wide. I saw a message from a coca cola collector in england and he was anxious to find out what the roots was going to be for. The truck said christmas. So it's a big deal. And charlie brown charlie brown christmas the original one wanting to happen if coca-cola stepped up and said we think that's a great idea and came up with the money to make it happen and charlie brown's christmas lives on because of coca cola. They again what's what's a softer spot in your heart. that christmas. Why not could coca cola with it. And they have been very successful in that to continue that same point i when i was reading that section and you highlight springfield tennessee which i guess they call it. Christmas done brighton. It's all that section that you go over the Synonymous name of coke in christmas in the way. They've done that one that i didn't see in there that i definitely remember growing up. Are the polar bears the coca cola bears. Because i don't know when exactly they came out. But i feel like it was when i was of an impressionable age so that was what i was thinking of in a mike. That's actually one. I don't think i saw a good point. Maybe book number three. We didn't spend a lot of time on the rarer but the fact is they're almost as famous as santa claus and they're back every year lovable and you know did you are of his commercial issuer or solid gauze rescue dad and drove the big semi truck and brought dad. Back home to the little girl. That's classic here. Santa driving one of the big cola is so they touched all bait. They got santa. Got the big semi and the girls wish was to bring dead home for christmas at santa in the truck brought him home. What we cover all the heartstrings here. Yeah i don't know why. But i'm thinking of all the bad press. Mcdonald's used to get about appealing too much to kids but a little bit of that. Same vein again. Yeah reading that section even just thinking of my own experience yes definitely it is. It's synonymous with christmas in the holiday. That is part of it. Seems like most americans at least experience and going back to the christmas done bright. Can you talk a little bit about springfield tennessee. Yeah that's where.

"You talk about the chapter in georgia. An art professor at the university of georgia got his students together and they formed a little group called the color of the world bright and they have gone around the state contracting making a ringlets with communities that have these signs that need to be restored and the that chapter tells about the different communities. Were they've gone. What the sign looked like before it was restored what it looks like now and and wyatt was restored. That and it's amazing. The effort is communities have gone to save our signs. You know it's a. Here's a the university. Professor this got his students involve as a learning process and then pick up a few bucks in the process. It's a great into into a wonderful thing to have the coca cola bureau zelter. I also picked out the very end of the section with georgia and specifically for columbus georgia. There's the picture of birthplace of coca cola so it sounds like there's well. Let's hope a friendly competition between columbus in atlanta claiming the birthplace of coca-cola. Can you tell me a little bit about that. In who wins f i. I'm a underdog guy. So i'm pulling for columbus. Well actually i guess it depends who you listen to. the supposedly. the truth of the matter is pemberton. invented the cer- created the surf's when he was in fact a druggist in calm. Okay and he went to. He moved to atlanta. Took the formula with him. And that's where it was actually produced. I think the backup the underdog story here One of the x. Archivist from coca cola on mr mooney goes with the theory that yes it was not in the developed in atlanta. It wasn't vetted in columbia and columbus that here that says that's why story up stick to it so i guess it was. I probably put on sale in atlanta and that little drugstore where it was sold for medicinal purposes supposedly and it went from there so let them both fight over. They both have monuments and statues to to the birth of coca cola. Long as we've got it in the right state. I guess that's another task for people that are following your book and trying to go on the coca cola trail maybe they can go to atlanta. They can go to columbus and decide for themselves who gets which piece of the pie. And i in turn will get to see a good amount of the state of georgia so that that's a good point. At least they're not too far from each other that you could do that. Comparison in columbus to while they're there. There's a lot of pemberton memorabilia. They're supposedly worked in his home. And there's a lot of coca cola industry in columbus georgia trip. And i i know i keep referencing. It's a theme that we talked about before. That's another one of the things i like about. The book is these are towns that people might not have on their bucket lists otherwise but there are a lot of historical items to appreciate in again especially with what we face this last year. It's a better time than any other time to realize. There's a lot of cool stuff in your backyard again. I'm in virginia. So there are certainly towns that get into the western side of the state that i need to put on my list and we were just in the smoky mountains for me the first time actually this past year as kind of stay and clearly there are some tennessee. Towns that are highlighted. plenty of tennessee. Towns that you can find out a lot more and what their history is one piece..

"Asia students make major life decisions about where to go to college and what to do when they get there even without having spent time learning about themselves to make informed decisions in today's episode. I'm going to talk about how personality tests can be used in. The college admissions process and in our scholarship segment. I'm gonna talk about the coca cola scholars foundation scholarship welcome to the scholarship shark. Podcast i'm pam andrews. Your host as a college admissions consultant. I believe that getting into college does not need to be complicated or confusing and paying for it doesn't need to be costly and you're here because you believe the same. Join me each week. As i shared advice on the college admissions process as well as scholarship tips. So let's get started with today's episode. Welcome back to the scholarship shark podcast. I'm pam andrews your host and in today's episode. I'm gonna talk about personality in. The college admissions process really focusing on personality tests and in our scholarship segment. I'm gonna talk about the coca cola. Scholarship so now while it's great for you to showcase your grades standardized test scores and other accomplishments in your college admissions application. Colleges are not only concerned with stats. They wanna be able to get a feel for who you are and what your character is and whether or not you're a good fit for their university so in other words they wanna see your personality shine through your application and there are plenty of opportunities to do just that but before you start applying to college. You really have to start with discovering who you are what interests you and your personality type. You really should go through a process of self discovery now. There are many ways to do this. you can talk to others people who know you you trust their opinion. They can provide a very objective opinion. You can journal and capture your ideas and your thoughts down in a notebook. You can try new experiences things that challenge you but another way you can go through. This process of self-discovery is with a personality test and a personality test is an assessment designed to measure the characteristics patterns or traits that you exhibit across various situations. Now it's so toll that's used to help you out to help you gain a better understanding of yourself so that you can make decisions that are right for you now. There are many different types of personality tests. But i'm going to focus on a common one. Called the myers briggs. It's also called the myers briggs type indicator or the m b. ti. Now this is made up of sixteen different combinations of four letters with each of the possible letters representing a psychological preference so the letters represent one preference from each of the following four types. So number one. You're either an introvert or an extrovert number. Two you're either. Intuition are sensing number three. You're either thinking or feeling and number four you're either judging or perceiving and the way it works is that for a number one introvert or extrovert. It's where do you prefer to direct your focus. Are you more inward or outward number..

"On that? They don't even know about. I had I had to licenses. Through coca-cola which was not a problem they looked at it and said, yeah, you're harmless and they licensed it. You know. So in the front page of the book in the I, call the Gobbledygook page where all the legal stuff is it'll tell you the the the book has been licensed Michael. But I tried to throughout the book. Not to go to coca-cola archives for information. You know I I wanted information that. I wanted to try to the bottlers you know and. The few times that I went to the archives. It was just verify something that I've been told by somebody else. So it loaded with information that. They provided. Some of the information that is sold to Coca Cola archives. Wow, very cool stuff. So they're getting information from you. That's great stuff Are you familiar with with? The? Conspiracy Theory Club Mandela Effect Not Okay. basically but. The reason I'm asking you about it. It's basically the theory is that there is a glitch in the Matrix in where we live in a messed up of version of of reality and that a lot of things have changed from the world we knew before it's it's a ridiculous play the out there conspiracy theory. But part of the thing they talk about his logos change from we were complicated and they talk about the phone afford logo and they talk about the Oscar Mayer Wiener and have the name change and not spelled what it was but one of the things they talk about it the Coca Cola logo has it changed it changed. And the story is in my second book. Okay. A world famous international save us. He's now deceased wildlife artists for Minnesota Les Kouba. Les Kouba started out his. Career Painting Gogol on the sides of buildings at on trucks at whatever to make dollar. He's not true good at it that he could paint the Coca Cola logo upside down and backwards. But he he knew that logo at one point this is back in one thousand, nine, hundred, twenty s he went to. Georgia. To paint a coca-cola sign on a Ballpark, you know the ballpark background. and. The local bottler had brought him in and he tool bottler he said I can do it. He said, you know the WHO SOME HELP It needs a little more depth and eight just handsome ideas and the bomber said, we'll Glenn do it. He did it. He created just A. Slight change the Coca Cola logo. The bottler was so impressed. He's an Tiffany Georgia. He called Coca Cola corporate in. Atlanta he's got to come see this. Way said some of the marketing box up to tiffany. To look at what what Cola had done. They were so impressed with that. They came back two days later with a check and bought the rights. to His design of the Coca Cola logo. So yeah, has changed a little. we're, GONNA sell a lot of books. The conspiracy theorists people are now because I'm Gonna I'M GONNA share cut that clip outweighed talked about the logo changing because that's been a huge. People buy into all sorts of crazy ideas, these days, and so that one is out that it's called the Mandela effective if you ever have. To just waste on on meaningless lap. But there are a lot of people who believe in it and one of the things they point out is that Coca Cola's logo changed and I it must be something nefarious. It's like a glitch in a matrix when you just pointed out factually that it, there's a good reason behind the chains. And so Only if you had to really know what you're looking add. To see the difference, right? Right. Well, they do they. You know the Ford. Logo to the Ford logo has a little bit of a change in the to a little squiggly line and they like that and but I guess they don't bother checking with the companies because that information has to be pretty easy to find out that that. Yes indeed. We did change the logo slightly at some point and this had happened but they they don't bother to go that far I guess. What about the Ford logo the about three years ago when I got started on the book, the gentleman who is in charge of the archives in Atlanta. Went. About two years ago, he went to work as archivist and Ford. So it went from the Red Oval to Okay Very step and ironically when he went to work at coca-cola says This is a great place. And Great. American companies though Henry Ford, from what I tell this was a real jerk but to great American companies informed Coca Cola iconic companies of a what made America great right. Good good stuff.

Right, when did they start to diversify and extra like orange crush I know orange crush with available when I was a kid and that was my second favorite I. Mean I love the the orange crush in the same kind of sixteen ounce bottles that you could get cocaine. But when did they start that diversification in different kinds of drinks? Why think it came two ways? You had bottlers who were already bottling. Sodas you know SAS parole whatever. So ramblers a natural addition to what they were doing. And consequently other bottlers who were just bottling Coca Cola. Said wait a minute. You know we could. We is some more product we could get on the shelves we're going to these stores anyhow. So it evolved and that coca-cola solid what was happening and they started creating the Coca Cola brands the Santa's etc you know. I mean today Coca Cola is the so many products the average person you know it just a boy away I mean monster for example, he had familiar with the monster energy drink. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah Coca Cola product I did not know that. There's a story behind Bab, they bought into it percentage in by it all and part of the agreement was, would they want into it that they would not could use an energy drink in the United States. While, they developed an energy drink. In. England. At Ucla now you see it in the United States. While Monster said, wait a minute. We got this agreement will I don't know what was involved one dollars worth changed hands but always on monster signed off on the ACA Cola you. We're not gonNA fight you if you want to bring your energy to the United States. So you could go into store now and I think there's three flavors of Coca Cola Energy and they're you know they're in that that. Recognizable thin, tall can, and and. You know they're into milk. Who? have. A bottle of water to write. They have about water products. Dishonest Johnny Right Yeah. There's a bodmer in my book.

Western movie that used to be an hour Gimme a Saas Perello margin. A What about Dr Pepper was that was that always around what was that of rival of coq? Rival and it started out very similar. It started out in Texas and it was a pharmacist who came up with the formula and. GonNa heck of a job would that product and in setting a bothers and you'll find a one of Coca Cola bottlers also handle Dr Pepper right and they came didn't co come out with Cherry Coke to kind of. To compete with that or something well, I'm over was to compete with empathy definitely want a new flavor and for a while Cherry, coke was extremely popular. They're always. Experimenting they had that that orange dream cycle when they came out with not too long ago. The idea is. Get as many products as you can take up as much space, other grocery store shelves, you can't. How much of your life? How much time and energy that you put into researching his book and writing it? Two and a half years on this one and. we have a new one coming out. It's anthem printers as we speak, it's called return to the Coca Cola trail. Announced got another two hundred pages and another twenty seven chapters places to go. You know it. It's just amazing. I got into this thing and I couldn't turn her loose. People would come to me and say, are you aware of you know at I'd investigated and sure enough. So when we did a second book, it'll be out it's up supposed to have it back from the perimeter about two weeks why it's called returned to the Coca Cola. All right. Well, we have the coca-cola the the url up in abatements growing along the Hope program. If you WANNA, get the book right now it's available on Larry's website there So it's just the Coca Cola trail that calm very easy. Of course, link will be in the descript always Any value. Are you talking about collectibles? Is If value in some of this stuff like say if I had a bag full of coca cola bottle caps would that be worth anything. About the camps. I do know that at one time. During, the war. They couldn't make they couldn't get the medal to make the caps were some bottlers. The were actually recycling the caps back to the company in Chicago, and with those camps came back they were painted gray. So as A great. coca-cola cap, which is very rare that would be worth something and there wasn't a lot of made but not camps as much as the bottles and you know you, you talk about Coca Cola Memorabilia you walk into a country store you walk into a flea market you walk into an antique store there's going to be Coca Cola on the wall all over the place. Right look at the prices on some of that stuff is pretty good and That's odd to me that people were wanted like on a sweatshirt on a pillow or you know what they have lots is so many different products that have that logo on it, and it's just surprising to me why bad is an attractive product?.

What was better the twelve ounces sixteen ounce bottles We argued about coca line. I guess. My memory now but so was it always carbonated or I'm under the impression or I think I've been told somewhere along the line that when it first came out, it was not that carbonate hardly had any carbonation and it was like a very syrupy type of drink at the the change over the years. Yeah. It did it change and it was simply because of the difficulty you know these are we're talking mom and pop operations and their hand Bodley you know. We got a big tank with the CO two or whatever. Okay. So obviously the. The carbonation was not as heavy or as consistent as it is now, right when did the first the competition? Was it? Pepsi, and when was that? Why I don't think it was Pepsi. There were a bunch of them in the early nineteen hundreds and I, think probably the one that stands out the most and actually go to follow suit him was a company called. She agr Oh cola rated came in red cans. Bottles to with the with similar writing on it to right. And Coca Cola took him to court and got him to quit. And they had already at that time had set up several bottlers around the country they were doing a coca-cola thing. But ironically about twenty five years later, the court ruling was overturned, but it was too late for sure they were out of business. Go to call had tried to To secure the use of the Word Cola and a beverage and Lico court upheld that and later they said, no. You can't do it. Right. So you as you mentioned, a couple of times here were really Atlanta was the main headquarters in the early days in probably still is right. How long did it take to go national nationwide and become like America's drink? We're GONNA take long because. I. Didn't really think it was a big idea. You know. So you've got these two guys in Chattanooga who have invested their last fifty dollars and now they've got you know the world. At their disposal and it was their. Desire to make it go that really made it happen fast they were. There was two of them and they were selling franchises like crazy. They ultimately split the country a half half of them have country went to one of the partners who took the southern half and the other party took the northern house but they continued vigorously setting up bottlers and and it became not only. Shorter known as a parent Butler because remember they were keeping. Commission, the Syrup Okay at you had world through them to get your rights the bottle, but they also protected the bottlers. There was one particular incident. Would ownership changed at Coca Cola to a syndicate? And The person who was in charge said these agreements with these independent bottlers They're not. They can't last forever. We take a back whenever we want and they tried to thank him back at strength of the the parent bottler pulling all the La- bottlers together the beat that down at Coca Cola as well. You know. Coca Cola wanted to get all back but they could. Have a photo of a lot of photos in the book or any photos in the book -solutely, there's A. The book has got over two hundred pages and there's at least one photo or more on every page and a lot of them are historic photos of I met with a lot of the families, these generations of generations and got photos from them from historical as I call them historical associations we got forwards and. There's a lot of photos in the book. I've got him photo in there in the very first chapter. There is a photo that I have taken the liberty to call. The world's first Coca Cola deliveryman. Vicksburg Mississippi and as a black gentleman on wagon pulled by. By donkey loaded with coca-cola cases. Vicksburg was the only place. It was bond like at that time as he was delivering for Vicksburg, he had to be the world's first coca-cola delivering them. I gotcha that's a good assumption to make. Absolutely. So when you talking eighteen, ninety five but and two, nine, hundred, five, one when was the infancy of the company I'm thinking? Refrigeration and why no refrigeration trucks I every day to be like on ice or an ice trucks or something. Well, it was delivered. Not, cooled down. But one of the bottlers out in the I'll told me the story that of course he had snow out Nyla that he would go to his local grocery store and. The boxers, the wooden boxes that cheese would come in he put that box. Window Ledge outside Lennon's get full of snow and they put the call. And had and their own cheese box. Cold, coca-cola's but for a long time, although was no refrigerated. Coca Cola yeah, IMAGINE MISSISSIPPI GETS pretty hot in the summertime coming out of Vicksburg would probably almost boiling. so In the nineteen fifties and sixties because we had this boom of fast food restaurants and of course, at they were all sound coke because that was the drink that you know. America, had it at time but at some point I think coke became very smart and a created deals with these companies exclusive deals that they had to either sell coke and call it Coca Cola and distinguished between coke and Pepsi because now, if you order a coke, it places that don't have Kobe. Yeah we only have Pepsi.

"Think not. Long. They did bring it back sort of as a memory thing in a very limited amount and who knows it was sold or whatever but it was. It was a promotion didn't last long. So. I. Don't know a there. You got into this part of it, but cocaine within an IT originally at some point, right when it will. Vest verify started there was cocaine or trace amounts of cocaine and. That's a slightly exaggerated version of what happened but you know the competition likes spread that the Coca Cola formula is made from the Kola nut. and the coca. Leaf. Leaf is in fact processed. To get the flavor out of it, but it is not highly processed as they do to make cocaine. And now, because of that in the early, very early stages of Coca Cola there was that sleight. Of Hint whatever you WANNA call it of cocaine which came from the coca leaf being processed the way it was it got to be such a hassle. The owner of Coca Cola as candler. Who knows how much money our chemists and research people want to make sure there was no trace of that ever ever again because it was starting to get some bad rap and it wasn't really cocaine it was an ingredient for McAleese Won't insure. gave him a lot of grief for awhile. Wow and so when when did they actually start marketing it like where you can buy it and six packs and all that kind of stuff was that wasn't right away right I guess you would buy a single bottle at at one point and then some somewhere along the line somebody said we. Do this six packs in cases and that kind of stuff always that immediate. Well almost immediate, not quite but Chattanooga were these two lawyers would back that became the first licensed approved bottler for Coca Cola, and to this day the operation there is one of the biggest N Coca-cola and they started fairly soon looking at other ways the market one of them. In Chattanooga, there's a company that was successful for many many years making the old wooden cartons member, the the one Ray, and ironically there was also in Chattanooga, a company that made the bottles and the license from Indiana to make the bottles will the salesman from the from the Carton. Company. Wouldn't carton company and the salesman from the bottle company. They take off other road together and they'd go visit bottlers around the country and they would sell them coca cola bottles. Well, they have to come in a case. To sail. So it was pretty pretty quick that they got into ways of multiple marketing in the wooden cases I one and that came fairly soon. And a bottle pretty much stayed the same bright for for the first fifty, sixty years whatever it was. lutely. Bottles got a light green color to it. Yeah. Why Because when the company Indiana. The Root Glass Company, when they made the bottle, they had A. A sand. Quarry about fifty miles away. In a town called Greencastle, which has nothing to do with the color, but it's ironic the town is greencastle. So they brought the sand by rail to Tara hold and made the bottle while as it turned out, there was copper and other minerals in that sand that created the green color. Global Coal I did so much at first they called a German green and they said, no, that's not a good idea. Then they called a Georgia greed but consequently after that, any glassmaker that made a coca cola bottle. If there are sand did not contain the minerals they were required to get them and make sure that they made green bottles to. Wow interesting stuff that said that copper in the bottle affect the taste at all. No. No it was the the comper was you know in the sand and the sand is they make glass they built the sand and it had no no affect on the taste of the product and all but it it certainly added in a fake. Incurs old. It strikes me as my one of my memories is my brother and I arguing about bottles versus cans and it does infect the taste and does it taste different in a bottle and the candidate? We I think we had that argument several times When did they start canning it? Actually. They started canning it. About in the eighties nineteen eighties as well. They really got into it because we become a throwaway society. And coca-cola actually sent out a memo to their bottlers about ten fifteen before that in the sixties that said canning is coming get ready for it. Okay. Because we have become a throwaway society of people didn't WANNA take bottles back to the store and. Consequently, the bottle manufacturers came up with the throwaway bottle. Well, you say, well, what what's the difference? There's a big difference in the construction of it made. Okay but yeah. So in any case they. They a lot of to change over to canning. For a lot of these small bottlers that was an expensive proposition and many of them would get together and form a Canon cooperatives where what they were known a canning plant that would can coca-cola for all and then it would go the different bottlers, some somebody's and Zach. Are Independent bothers to this day. Aren't some Phil can as well as vital in their their companies but most of them have gone to the Cooper project. So. I never have lots of different kinds of bottles out but there is a place near me where I can get like what looks like the classic bottle but somebody told me the Mickens in Mexico are they still making him in the US? Not to my knowledge, they're not making him in the US, but they are selling still selling a lot of because it's an astounding. ironically, the last bottler to actually bottle the six and a half ounce Coca Cola. was about three years ago in one own Minnesota. And he bottled the six and a half obser- for the last time, and he actually had to go to sources to get another bottles to new the bond leg I think they ran like two thousand and some bottles. became sort of collectors thing. In fact, A bottler from Saint, Cloud Minnesota bought the last one for two thousand dollars and the other ones all sold for ten dollars each and the money would to improve the trail system in will not Minnesota. So there's no money that I'm aware of in the United States bobbling.

"A coke was being used as a doorstop. How many I get people try this you know the song about. peanut senior coke. It's an old country song now. It is a country song about hours, putting peanuts and my coke when when. Any so This why in Santa Fe New Mexico buys a fifty pound bag of peanuts. And it gets his kids to put the peanuts, the little one serving bags, and for every bag that they made, he battled two bottles coca-cola load it all into his little truck and went to the local football game, and he would sell peanuts, and after somebody had peanuts, they had a thirst. So then they had by coke and. That's how he started. There were a lot of other ways some of the bombers took it on. We're bottling you know all kinds of sodas SAS morillas, orange, and lemon lime, and all that, and so then send out a case of mixed drinks to a customer, and they'd slip in a couple of bottles of Coca Cola zero. They could get him to try it and those are the types of things that were done to get people to try Coca Cola. Was a harsh awful for awhile. So But what was the Chola what what people were college before Coca Co Coca Cola came out with it where was there a cola drink or were they the first ones that actually had coal a carbonated? Water I it's. First Ones Ed became so successful that there were a lot of brands of colas. You had the Chiro coal you had all kinds of brands and the problem those was in early nineteen hundreds is battling was whatever they could get their hands on to put it in a bottled. Consequently the consumer was really confused. Am I getting coca-cola? Am I getting trivial one of my getting so Coca Cola in nineteen five and this is why The Coca Cola bottle is what it is in nineteen o five Coca Cola went to the bottle makers in the United States and they offered a challenge. We want a bottle that has a coca cola bottle. It'll be our bottle of we nothing like while six bottlers bottle makers took the challenge and they all created their own idea for Coca Cola bottle the a year later, the six that competed. took their product to. For a meeting of Coca Cola bottlers and one model was selected that one happened to be be produced in Terre Haute. Indiana, by the Root Glass Company and that one one, the right to battle, and so consequently, every bottle Coca Cola from that day forward had to be in that bottle it was designed by the Root Glass Company. Now, they maintained the the exclusive patent to that for about twenty five years and what other glass companies would need to bottle to make bottles for Coca Cola they had to pay the company in Indiana a world EC. Eventually, coca-cola said, wait a minute are they bought out the rights to their own bottle from this bottling maker in in Indiana and it's been a coca-cola property of her since I? Show you the value of that bottle. We're talking about collectors. The bottle collectors are just as avid. You know when you got that bottle of coca. Cola machine chances are if you looked on the bottom, there was a town on the bottom of that bottle as to where that Coca Cola was bomb. That became a big collector thing and the the the more rare in the town, the more extensive the bottle to collect her. Role the comet bottle in collecting the holy grail is at were. When they did it in one, thousand, nine, hundred, five, each bottle maker. After the test they were supposed to be destroyed except the winning bottle one went to Coca Cola archives another one disorder sorta disappeared. You know well, obviously in somebody had it and it came up for auction a year ago in California and the reason we know it's that model is because it's dated nineteen o five. And they weren't maybe in nine they were they started making them in nineteen oh six. Five it had to be that one remaining prototype and that model went up for auction and sold for over a hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Oh. My goodness. So when you say stuff like that I'm thinking about all the money I could have thrown away traded back for a nickel because the bottles you are in those days I don't even think it wasn't nickel when when you took it back for recycling or do you get your deposit? I think it was a penny or two pennies back in the sixties and not even a nickel. But so you you you tell me I gave away a hundred fifty thousand dollars. For House you census. What you may but I don't know how that one existed and finally came up for auction but. Nevertheless it. It was a survivor. The other one is. In the archives and coca-cola corporate in Atlanta. Right. So and the funny thing is that plenty I don't know how funny is. But when People Order Cola they don't they just call it a coke they assuming no matter what kind what brand it is they're gonna say coke just you know give me a burger and a coke Burger fries and a coke whatever even if they're getting Pepsi or whatever would be of the brain. They. WanNa which. is in well, that's goals. You know another story about you remember the Coca Cola. The Du Hoc. Member that dry air new coca thug perlman the reason for that product about that time Pepsi was doing a thing called the Pepsi Challenge Right I remember that. and. You would go up to the counter and there would be two unmarked glasses and you take a sip of each one and then you would say which one is the best will people were taking the Pepsi At Drove Coca Cola Greasy. So he's GonNa Change Floor Mail. So they changed formula they came out with the new coq. What happened if you take a sip of two different beverages? And one is sweeter chances are you're going to go with the sweeter one? But for long term enjoyment, you're gonna go with the Coca Cola. Coca Cola was so. Sucked into that project by Pepsi, you know that they had to have a new product and they created the new Coca Cola. They were GONNA, die by rabid for two years it went on this. New Coca Cola and I mean deliveryman who are delivering Coca Cola the grocery stores said liberal would cost them say, where's my? Goal I want like were. Flying. I remember having arguing with my brother when I when we were kids about, which was better coca Pepsi, and of course, Pepsi was a little sweeter and as a younger kid, I liked to Pepsi in those days but he was a diehard coke guy and and coke was better and so but when in the eighties came along and they had that Pepsi Townsend in New Co, came out it was clear that you know new coq was trying to tastes like Pepsi nobody likes nobody likes the new coq they all wanted the all coke. And it but it took go to Cholla two years to realize they've made a mistake. To give. A period when they had new coq out and classic coke and you could either at one point there. Yes. There were I think I guess maybe they were trying to get rid inventory I don't know..

"Exciting whether adventure Manetti Al So. There's to newseum. Private museums. For coca-cola, certainly nearby and would be a great travel feature. So I went to the first one in Vicksburg did little information on them. Then I went to the next one, which is in Monroe Louisiana and as I got talking to the people at that museum and the family is History Coca Cola history. I realized there is so much more to this than just a little feature. There's a book it's all over the place and that inspired me to go after it and to create the book and and there are so many interesting places to visit that are coca-cola history. We're not talking about Atlanta everybody written about it Atlanta Ghetto we're talking about, for example, Vicksburg Mississippi. were. Coca Cola I modeled bottled in VICKSBURG MISSISSIPPI NOT IN ATLANTA. It was bottled there by a gentleman that had a a sort of phone and an ice cream store and a candy store, and he was selling Coca, Cola? Fountain drinks he was also the distributor for the Coca Cola Syrup so he'd get it for his store and Sell it to other stores to make Fountain Cokes Yanni thought this was eighteen, ninety five. And he's not. You know it's a long walk into Vicksburg from wherever you are. If we put this stuff in bottles, we bring it to you and that's how it started. He actually was bottling for five years before coca-cola said Yeah it's okay to bottle. You just. Did it you know and? The family at the beaten orange they became anyone who follows coca-cola role know that the beaten of the pioneer coca-cola families, bottling families, and they're still bottling today and. It's just typical of what's in the book. It's all kinds of places where you could go and see coca-cola history and wire looking at it. We're going to tell you what you're looking at. Right. It's an American phenomenon, but now it since eighteen ninety-five, it's grown into a worldwide phenomenon. I mean you can't go anywhere in the world with the brand. coca-cola is not known, right? It is the world's best known brand. Best. It is also the world's best collected brand people coca cola, Idol Care coca-cola whatever got Coca Cola on it in collectible. There's an organization of coca-cola collectors several thousand of them they made and have rallies and trade. events where they swamp and they have an annual convention is a big deal and these people are into Coca Cola, collectible. But you know it was and I think what we try to say what the book. It was those little Coca Cola bottlers who thought. This might be worse something and they started bottling it and they're the ones really that created the Coca Cola Empire as we know it today, it's little guys who took a chance opera. For new, Orleans, you know said, we're going to try it. You know. Coca Cola. Bottling was a good idea. Yeah. I was just going to ask you about that. was that something that the the corporation the company supported or were these guys in working independently and coming up with their own bottling techniques, him a bottle styles and all that kind of stuff. It's A. Story again on unsuccess-. Two young lawyers from Chattanooga. Fought you know if we could get the rights to bottle Coca Cola we could probably make some money. Her make a trip to Atlanta and they meet with the gentleman as candler who was making the Coca Cola Syrup. And they said to him Mr Candler. We want exclusive rights to bottle. Coca Cola in the United States and he said that's a pretty dumb idea. Is Arnold Arnold that idea It took them to wings to Jim to at least look the idea. So he said, all right go back drama contract. Let me take a look at it which they did. He looked at it and he said I don't think this is makes any central. He said I'm worried about the quality of the product being maintained bottling. He said it's a quote a dumb idea, and if it doesn't work dot com calling back to me with it and he charged them one dollar for the home or the exclusive rights to bottle Coca Cola and every place. But Mississippi because that's where joe was already doing gay. So they go back to Chattanooga. You Know Matt you know the story about the the dog chasing the car what do you do with it when you can't you? We these guys were the same way. They go back to Chattanooga the got the rights to bottle Coca Cola over the united. States, and between the two of them have got fifteen hundred dollars you know. So like what are we going to? So what they did after setting up their own little bottling plant and realizing that wasn't going to make. They said, wait a minute. We've got the rights and they started selling territories. You WanNa bottle, Coca Cola, and Paducah. Great. A fifty mile radius for X. amount of money and you could follow Coca Cola. However, you must use the Coca Cola, Syrup, which comes from Atlanta and when you get the syrup. We being the ones who sold you the rights also got a commission on every gallon of Syrup that you buy. So they sold have been cut. You know kept their fingers in the pie to speak and it was that initial franchising what it was that created the coca-cola. Empire, people said, let's try it and it wasn't easy you. There were a lot of obstacles and coca-cola were so different that People were afraid to try it just there's a lot of stories in the book as to how the bottlers convince the customer to try the drink. Well Yeah. Let's talk about that. So it wasn't really a marketed to kids as it started out. Right? It was an adult drank. Right and you know it through meridia originally developed the syrup was developed by Pemberton. Who thought he had a civil war injury and he was looking for some worries some way to get relief. So it was developed from medicinal purposes as they say well. You know one of the ways unique ways is like that a bodmer out in Santa. Fe. decided to do it. He bottled his first case coca-cola took it to his local grocery store the man there was his friend and he said, I'll leave you the case and I'll be back in a week to pick up my money. Well he came back at a week and the case,.

The other story that I love is the story of Coca Cola. Coca Cola after eleven years of advertising in the Super Bowl is not going to be there before kick-off. They're just not doing the event Cassivi s is looking for a little over five million dollars. To run ad in the game. Right. If you run an ad pre-game gossip you hundred thousand or could cost a few million. They are running a sixty second commercial just before kickoff. All about diversity and inclusion. Oh, wait. Maybe I spoke too soon. Maybe I spoke too soon Coca-Cola doing we have a long history of using the country's biggest advertising stage to share a message of unity, and positively especially at times when our nation fields divided this year, we decided to place our ad Jesse for the national anthem as Americans come together in their living rooms to remind everyone that together is beautiful. Does that include conservatives and liberals, I mean are conservatives invited to the party because usually they're kept out of the party Republicans are told they're not welcome there not invited to be part of marches. They're not allowed on college campuses. They're kept away. So so what is the what is the together that we're talking about here that is beautiful. You know what? Spoke too soon. Coca cola. I thought you were pulling out of the Super Bowl because you didn't want to be around. What it is. They have done. Heck what I know? Maybe you're just exhausted by Tom Brady.

"Worldly, fellow Fred Weintraub who is sitting in studio with me as well. Joining us now on the phone, author of the book, entitled the Coca Cola trail is Larry Jorgensen. Thank you Larry for for your time tonight. I know it's the middle of the night. All right. Thank you. Glad to be here. We are. We are big fans of Coca Cola around the studio. There are lots of them around here. But what what possessed you, I know this this product has been around for literally more than one hundred years what possessed you to write a book about it. Well, we have two very interesting places in Coca Cola history nearby, and I started out by investigating those. And I realized there was much more to this than just those places. My book is called people and places in the history of Coca Cola, and we go all the way back to eighteen ninety four was some unique stories and primarily what we try to do. The book is not only the history, but places where the reader can still go and see some of this history. You know, whether it's a Coca Cola bland us. Now something else or a Coca Cola museum or or whatever. Did it does have a very storied history. I remember growing up, and my mom would say that my her aunt. So my great aunt had been addicted to it because of cocaine, and I was like what that's just crazy mom is that factor fix it. That's primarily should. But I do know a lot of people that are addicted to it because it's a it's a fabulous beverage. But the that comes from the fact that the original formula for the syrup use coca leaves, which ultimately if you wanna do like the boys. Do. Yeah. You could make but cocoa leaves? No. So the formula had coca leaves added had the coal. That's. Gradients in the original Coca Cola formula. All right. The other thing that I have to check with you. Because nobody remember Fred Fred Weintraub who sitting in studio with me tonight as well. He claims to remember this. But I think he's just being nice when I was little my grandmother who was a nurse used to if I had a upset stomach like every little kid gets all the time. She would go out here have some coke syrup, and she would go to this medicine bottle that she'd gotten at the pharmacy, and it was what I believe was the syrup from Coca Cola. Do you remember this? I I am not had crystal memory of that. And I think today it would be extremely difficult to buy. Although you can if you go on read, you could find it. The Coca Cola syrup. That is used in the bottling of Coca Cola. I purchased some one time it comes in a very large bag, and we had it made into. Coca-cola jelly for Christmas. But normally it would not be available. I say at a pharmacy. Whether it was in those days who knows that's, but I know there are people that do count on Coca Cola. Because gradients and the carbonation. Give them some relief from stomach problems or you could have a coup believer. Absolutely. It just in part of that. Phase that sells your stomach when you've got a problem when you don't feel well. Well, I think it's psychosomatic because I remember having my grandma gift syrup whatever is tiny. So I'm like, oh that always makes me feel better so leery, would you would you consider yourself a coke a Coca-Cola connoisseur? I'm afraid not. I'm an old news dog who got interested in this story and decided to make a book out of it. I know a lot of Coca Cola concerts said I'd met some wonderful Coca Cola people in doing the book. But unfortunately, I am not a connoisseur of Coca Cola. I like it. It's good beverage. It's not a mustard on my list. So as you were writing the book, what were the what were the couple of things that absolutely shocked you business mistakes. They Coca-Cola made sold something for a dollar that they should have sold for a million dollars. Right, right. That's to me. Fascinating story. Well, you know, Coca Cola was first bottled the very first time in eighteen ninety four in Vicksburg, Mississippi was a gentleman by the name of Joe Biden iron who was had a a Felton soda fountain. And was getting the syrup for his salt. And he was also a distributor of the syrup and out of frustration. Not being able to get the beverage to people in the country. He decided he would try to bottle it. He did. And Coca-Cola said. Yeah, that's what I was. So what you know, you're right on the dollar. It was five years ago. Five years later, the attorneys Chattanooga. Ben Thomas ago, white held one to Atlanta and convince the owner of Coca Cola syrup that time was Acer candler. They wanted to bottle Coca Cola, and he said to them. This is ridiculous. He said he does. And so I saw syrup and they wore down to the point where he signed over the rights to bottle Coca Cola in the United States every place, but Mississippi for a dollar, and he never collected the dollar. So Mr Thomas. Mr Whitehead, go back to Chattanooga. And it's what are we gonna do? Now. Maybe maybe they needed to go take an MBA class. They probably didn't make the right business decision. But as you look globally in as you did all this research is kind of interesting to just realize how much Coca Cola whether you're a fan of the drink and not a fan of the drink. How it so in bedded threaded in our entire society from the jingles Coca-Cola's come I'd like to. Teach the world to see there's not a single person who who doesn't know that. And whether you're at a grocery store in London or Yugoslavia, or Singapore, you go down the beverage. I l and you see that the way you see that logo. You see that logo? And in many ways that logo that drink that branding. It really does bring us all together. Does it has special memories for a lot of people and the book, I'm very fortunate that I take those memories have come out in in people that have wanted to read the book, there's thirty chapters about all sorts of interesting things, I know GM gets down into Indiana. And you've got this story of the bottle starting in Indiana wires, the bottle green the we we have that out of greencastle, Indiana, and so forth that made it just Coca Cola history is all over the country and the book is a tribute to those independent bottlers at really they're the ones that made Coca Cola wasn't Atlanta. It was all about others. Who said, yeah, I'd best fifty two hundred dollars in this project, and I have a fifty mile territory, I'm gonna make Coca Cola. It is fascinating. How is such a simple decision by by one man just to help his his? His his people out in the country get to enjoy the same beverage. Those in town were drinking has really changed so much of our culture because I can't imagine people walk down the street. We have the cans we have the bottles really, really interesting.
