The Professor Posted October 8, 2016 Report Share Posted October 8, 2016 I was watching Weird Paul's latest video and noticed that his family was drinking Double-Cola!! This really hit home for me! My family and I had Double-Cola in the house when I was growing up. I haven't seen Double Cole in YEARS and thought I'd share a bit about Double-Cola with you today. Double Cola Double-Cola was once marketed as a lower-cost alternative to Coca-Cola and other soft drinks, but Double-Cola is now marketed as a premium brand in that area, with the same or higher price than Coca-Cola or Pepsi-Cola. Double-Cola is a regionally manufactured US brand of soft drink, predominantly distributed east of the Mississippi. Double Cola is a distinctive part of culture in Indiana, especially around Evansville, IN. In 1933, the original drink called "Jumbo Cola" was sold in a 12oz bottle, which at that time was double the size of other colas. The name was appropriately changed to "Double-Cola" and it's been that way ever since. Double-Cola is sold at every single Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, nationwide. So, next time you visit Cracker Barrel pick up a vintage four-pack of glass bottles, made with pure cane sugar. A bit more about Double-Cola can be found online. Double Cola is still in business and they have a pretty nice website which you can view here: http://double-cola.com/about-us/ Double-Cola Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double_Cola Double Cola Product Line Double-Cola's product line features several well-know drinks, including: Double-Cola Diet Double-Cola Ski (compare to Sun Drop) Diet Ski Ski InfraRED Caffeine Free Diet Ski Caffeine Free Ski Jumbo Flavors Chaser Double-Dry Ginger Ale Oranta MINOKU Coconut Water QUAD Energy Drink Zili Teas Weird Paul Petroskey's recent video that just so happened to feature his family drinking a 2-Litre of Double-Cola. This makes sense as Weird Paul is from the Pittsburgh area and Double-Cola was a regional drink at the time: Clint Thompson, Justin, MaximumRD and 4 others 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
