I've had it. It sucks. A poor excuse for a cola.

wigsf - They named it after me and it SUCKS? Do you think I can sue?

Sorry, wigsf3, but we've drank RC's cola for years. That used to be our standard food any time we did a road trip (RC Cola & a Moon Pie).

But it does taste better in a old glass bottle.

Agg79 - My wife insists that Coke tastes best from a glass bottle. OK, looks like I will have to try it now.

Rock Chef Cola, hmmm. Zingy, energetic, sizzle.

Rock Chef said...

TechnoBabe - Oh yeah!

Colas are made from, among other things, water. Coca-Cola a long time ago, figured out where to put their bottling plants based on the taste of the public water (or water straight from the underground water table) in various towns/regions. I don't know if Royal Crown Cola ever did the same.

As for how this pertains to the glass bottle debate, some bottling plants would bottle in actual glass bottles, others would not. These days, it's hard to find most sodas in a glass bottle. And the aluminum can does affect flavour.

Also, most of the soda beverages today use corn-based syrup for as a sweetening agent. Corn, not being kosher, is temporarily replaced with sugar for a single batch each year by Coca-Cola in the run-up to Passover so the Jewish community can have kosher cola at the Passover seder. Those who have down a blind-comparison of the two Cokes have all agreed that kosher Coke is better.

And Rock Chef, pretty sure Royal Crown predates your nomenclature. I probably have a glass bottle from RC dating back to the 1960s in my basement somewhere. It's filled with tomato sauce though.

wigsf - You can get Coke in glass bottles over here, but it is mainly for nostalgia IMO. You would think they would sell kosher Coke all year round! Hm, so no law suit then. Ah well, back to the drawing board :-)

Good Luck with that one buddy!

If I had a quarter for each RC I drank as a child, before I knew better! :)
And the Moonpie too, as mentioned by agg79!

Food so much better when it was guilt free!

I happen to like RC Cola. I just happen to drink Diet Coke instead. I think RC tastes a little more like Pepsi products, but still a decent cola and usually much cheaper than the big brands.

I foresee a blog name change coming up...

I say get your people to contact their people. Meet over lunch, discuss the details, sign a contract, then whisk yourself away in a limo with your fat check in your hands. (Don't forget to kiss the check.) Get home, spend it all on a candy bar, dust off your hands and go back to your real job.

BTW, I grew up drinking RC cola. The RC stands for Real Crappy, not Rock Chef, so my advice is don't drink it. :)
