Club Cola is the name of a cola soft drink once popular in East Germany.
Originally manufactured at the request of the Socialist Unity Party of Germany and other governmental organizations. Club Cola was created so that East Germany could have its own cola soft drink that was similar in taste and appearance to those sold in the western world. On 19 April 1967 the first Club Cola was bottled in Berlin. This soft drink was so popular with East German citizens that Club Cola was awarded with gold in the category soft drinks at the 1972 Leipzig spring fair.
... Club Cola is still available in Germany today ... generally agreed that the taste is very similar to the original Club Cola ...
Famous quotes containing the word club:
“The barriers of conventionality have been raised so high, and so strangely cemented by long existence, that the only hope of overthrowing them exists in the union of numbers linked together by common opinion and effort ... the united watchword of thousands would strike at the foundation of the false system and annihilate it.”
