      Try 1969.
    2. cocacolakid97 cocacolakid97, 11 years ago
      Frozen coca cola was introduced in 1969, and I think that logo was replaced by the "wave" logo in 197o, so 1969,
    3. sodadad sodadad, 11 years ago
      Patent numbers date to 1961. So...1961 my friend.
    4. sodadad sodadad, 11 years ago
      By the way..Coke did invent frozen coca cola in the latter 50s. This machine definatley has a patent number for 1961.
    5. cocacolakid97 cocacolakid97, 11 years ago
      No they didn't, not by the coca cola company. The campaign didn't last long. If there was a "frozen coca cola" it wasn't coca cola approved. That particular logo was used only in 1969. There is also the possiblity that someone patented a Ice chip/ soda mixing machine in 1961, and in 1969 coca cola used this machine for their product. Either way, it's still probably very rare. I'm ray and earlycoke will agree with me.

      I have owned and operated Seven-Eleven stores since the 1980s, This machine could have been in a Seven-Eleven in the late 1960s.
      The frozen soda product was invented in the 1950s by Omar Knedlik, he sold his rights to his invention to Seven-Eleven in 1967 as we had the birth of the Slurpee.
      First 2 flavors were Coke and Cherry. I have not seen this machine but looks like one we would have had in the late 60s

      Okay cocacolakid97 you were very close. It was the 1970's see the following link for the story Which by the way seems right to my memory. See frozen cokes have been a favorite of mine since the 1970s. They were not around in the early 60's unless you put a bottle of one in the freezer and then it would explode. Cleaned a few of those messes up. Nice one cocacolakid97. Always go by the logo. Patent numbers only refer to when a PART of a machine was patented (or patent applied for), not when it was made.
    9. metalman metalman, 11 years ago
      Well I can tell you the Slurpee was born in 1967 and the first 2 flavors were Coca Cola and Cherry. Futher the slushed ice drink was invented in the 1950s, if you look up the history of the Slurpee you will discover this info
    10. sodadad, 11 years ago
      Just for the record...the word.."Enjoy..was first used in 1911. Then again in 1923..1924..1925..1929..1957..1964..1965..and finally 1969. So that said..does anyone out there have any hard evidence that can prove this machine dates to ???
    11. sodadad, 11 years ago
      By the way..the machine measures relatively small. 58 inches tall by 19 inches wide and 28 inches deep. Little bigger than a poor mans 44.

      With due respect to everyone who visits the CW site. We get to view photos, read stories, and submit our opinions. Ultimately, the focus should be to the person looking for help and answers. This is a great place, lets all try to keep it that way. My $.02...

      sodadad: Nice!

      Sorry, my comment above doesn't make much sense now since Ray and vanskyock24 digs have been removed.
    14. cocacolakid97 cocacolakid97, 11 years ago
      Sodadad, where did you get information that "enjoy coca cola" was used in 1911? Or anything before 1965? Because that's when "Enjoy coca cola" was first used as a slogan. enjoy was used in a slogan that didn't have the words "coca cola" in the slogan, but that doesn't seem related to the subject of the "enjoy frozen coca cola" slogan, which by the way was first used in 1969.
    15. cocacolakid97 cocacolakid97, 11 years ago
      By all means, its a very nice machine. But I have lots of "stone cold" evidence that this is a 1969 machine.
    16. sodadad, 11 years ago the back of Petrettis coke book is a list of the phrases and years. Thanks everyone for the info here.
    17. tommy1002 tommy1002, 11 years ago
      Petretti's 12 th, page 634. " 1968- May,"Frozen Coca-Cola" first introduced. page 625 " Enjoy frozen Coca-Cola. 1969 " and just for kicks also on 625 "Enjoy Coca-Cola with ice cream. 1964 And it's still a nice little machine you have there.
