My late Uncle had a chest like this in his store when I was a child. The drinks were just this side of frozen-wonderful on a hot day! You had to pay at the cash register. Then he was "upgraded" to the .5 cent machine !

I love slushy coke so tasty. I have one of those plastic mugs you keep in the freeze. If you pour a cold coke the coke turns slushy. Here is the picture of the mugs I'm talking amount the liquid in the mug freezes and keeps things super cold.

I have some of those, too. I think the "goodness" of the Coke was partly the "slushiness" and partly that it was special when I got to buy a Coke from my Uncle's cooler . I (and most other children I knew) didn't drink soft drinks 24/7 like they do now .

(P.S. , OT-loved the pics you posted of you, DH, & Crazysis in the Carnival thread!)

Hi Fern happy memories of family make everything taste better. Thanks Fern the second picture I posted is one of my favorite pictures. We all took a good picture on that one, which is hard to do with three people.

Down here, it's "Co-Cola" (With souse.) Or "swate tay". Often confused.

Personally, as a second best, I like fountain Diet Coke from (gasp) Taco Bell. Large cup, but with only one inch of ice. Actually, I like V-8 better than Diet Coke, but it's too expensive.

First preferences are ice water and/or ice cold 2% MILK.

Added to say: GrandDad had one of those Co-Cola chests in his store back in the mid-50's. But - we drank RC Cola and grape/orange Nehi. Co-Cola was removed and sold separately. $$$??? In the late 60's, during my second year of working as a camp counselor at Camp Kippewa, Maine (not far from Augusta), I gathered my tween troops in the middle of the night, and supplied them with straws and bottle openers. We raided the Coca Cola chest (where you put in your money and slid the bottle to get it out) and drained every drop from every bottle. Massive internal investigation followed. We were confined to our cabins. No ratfinks, though. Yes, Martin G. - it was ME!
