When I was a kid, I had a paper route, and mowed lawns for extra cash. One day, I bought some RC cola and was drinking it watching tv, when my Mom came in and asked me why I hadn't bought Coca-Cola?

I had a good reason: RC cola was .25 cents a bottle; Coke was .50 cents. I got 2 for 1 with RC.

And she told me a story: RC cola's original bottling plant was in Detroit, and her brother (my Uncle) worked there. The employees could get free soda if they wished, be he never did, because the plant was so filthy.

That was the last RC I drank. I know now that that plant closed many years ago, and some other place makes it using the original formula, and probably in a clean plant.
