Robert Woodruff made a point of supporting US troops so metal cans were introduced to meet their needs.
In 1941, when the United States entered the war, Woodruff decided that Coca Cola's place was near the front line.
He sent an order to
"See that ever man in uniform gets a bottle of Coca Cola for 5 cents wherever he is and whatever the cost to the company".
You guys favorite drink is. . . Coca Cola! Wow! And to think that Starbucks might have won? I guess America still enjoys plain ol' great Coke :) Have you been to the Coke museum in Atlanta? It is a great place to go, especially if you like Coke because at the end of the tour you get to taste Coke products from all across the world. Some of them from other countries taste like NyQuill tweaked with Club soda, interesting. . . but it is a great experience. A new poll is up, so be sure to vote! :)
