Next to the very back to see the sun shine through the leaves.

Soda 11

Today’s soda is..

DSC02919

Dad’s soda was started in Chicago, Illinois in the year 1937 with a very yummy Root Beer. They were the first soda company to use the 6 pack format(created by the Atlantic Paper Company in 1940) and they were also the first company to sell soda in a half gallon size bottle.  Dad’s market their soda as a family. Dad was a half gallon bottle, Mama was one quart, and Junior as 7-10 oz bottles in the 6 pack. Pretty cute.
