Nope- that was wrong. It should be 1957, but I can't find WHO. I'll guess- Coca-Cola?

-- Gayle in KY (, April 25, 2002.

Not Coke, not Pepsi - between years listed.~

1955, RC COlA

-- Micheale from SE Kansas (, April 25, 2002.

RC is correct, test marketed in 1964, went national 1965.

Sorry Mitchell, but it was Slenderella in 1963. Check it out: First Aluminum Bevrage Can Did you know that aluminum is the second most common mineral element on earth? Do you know what is first?

Cab, does slenderella qualify as a soft drink? Or is it a weight control item? Please answer the question that is asked, if you want to ad lib start your own posts.

Sorry, Mitch didn't mean to cause a comotion. Slenderella was a diet cola according to the link I gave in my previous post.

Seeing as how much I enjoy your stumpers, I just thought I'd return the favor and give you a stumber back.....sorry.

I'll be good now.

Cab, I do not wish to disrupt either, it is thread drift that buggs me. Feel free to post your stumpers on the main board anytime you wish.

I'll risk the wrath of the board to answer Cab's question -- salt is, I believe, the number one mineral on earth -- is it not???
