When I was a kid we used to have some really big Coca Cola glasses with long metal spoons that we used for floats. I think we got them from Farrels or some place like that. Now I need a can of Ready whip, maraschino cherries and some Jimmie’s to go on top of my float.
How about spumoni ice cream? I love that stuff, not necessarily in a float though. I usually get it at an Italian restaurant after dinner. Do they even sell that flavor in the stores anymore.
We have those two, dad drove a delivery truck for Coca-Cola.
So did the neighbor across the street and two houses over.
.... So did the guy two blocks away at the bottom of the street
That was a lot of Coca-Cola drivers in literally a tenth of a mile.
We had a Coca-Cola bottling plant in the neighboring town the dad on the other two guys that were neighbors were drivers. Kind of odd in a town this small to have three guys driving for Coca-Cola that lived less than 10 rock throws away from each other. The bottling plant was about 6 mi away in our neighboring town.
We have the tall glasses and the tall spoons and oh dear God would I love to have the Coca-Cola Santa that my brother and I used as a football.
I've looked on the internet and I've yet to see one that was exactly the same as the one we kicked the stuffing out of.
The neighbor on the other side of the street had three of those steel Coke buttons that were larger than the garbage can lid...... Those "buttons" were nailed to the side of gas stations and stores that sold Coke products.
We had a big snow in 1968, 69 dropping 2 ft of snow here on the coast. That's going to live is a once in 300 year event.
Anyway back to those steel Coke buttons. We used them like toboggans, or better said, discs
Over the following week the snow dwindled. We used those Coca-Cola buttons, those big steel painted Squirt, Coca-Cola, and Tab things on the snow. They worked really good till they hit the slush impregnated gravel at the bottom of the hill. Over and over we made the trips down that hill, through the snow, into the gravel.
Yep we didn't stop our downhill escapades until the sun set.
Those beautiful buttons lost their paint, the iconic logos and the rest is history.
I'm betting they're worth a few dollars today. This is how we use them.
