      When was cola 10 cents? In your photo it was. Cola was 5 cents in 1940s I think and Pepsi gave you twice as much as Coca Cola ( in bottles)
    4. mikeigotit mikeigotit, 6 years ago
      PostCardCollector, in 1936 A 12 oz Pepsi cola was 10-cents a bottle, due to lack of sales it was reduce down to 5-cents until around 1960's and you got 6-oz of Coke Cola for 5-cents in 1936.

      What would we do without it?

      "For decades, the traditional retail price of Coca?Cola (sold in the 6 ½ -ounce bottle or at the soda fountain) remained at a nickel. By the late 1940's -- with production costs soaring -- a handful of bottlers broke from the normal cost structures and charged dealers 90 cents to $1 per case, rather than the standard 80 cents.
      The result: The cost of a bottle of Coke now varied between 6 and 10 cents. The first recorded price increase occurred in 1946 in Los Angeles, with bottlers in Louisiana, Illinois and the Pacific Northwest quickly following. Still, the movement away from the nickel Coke was slow to develop. By 1950, only approximately 125 (or 5%) of the 1,100 U.S. bottlers had raised prices. Most bottlers held to the standard 80 cents case price until economic pressures forced prices up in the years 1957-1959.
      Atlanta was one of the last major markets to increase prices when it finally imposed the $1 wholesale case price in March 1959. By 1960, with a few isolated exceptions, the nickel Coke had disappeared from the American scene."

      OK "Pepsi Man"! Remember This? Or are you too young. It's an oldie.

      "Pepsi Cola, Hits The Spot,
      12 Full Ounces,That's A Lot.
      Twice As Much For a Nickel Too,
      Pepsi-Cola Is The Drink For You"!

      It has the cutest tune--Go to Youtube and type in Pepsi Jingle--You'll have to try out a few--but you'll hit on the right vocal and you can sing along. I like it!! There are later ones too ( not as cute!)--but wait for the oldie.
