Read, Relax and Remember…

Here is an excerpt from the book, and believe me, it was VERY difficult to find just the right excerpt, because the book is fast and interesting and we all know and remember  where we were when we first saw these brands or shows. Without further ado, here is a taste of the author’s writing:

“…If you think cereals are old, then soft drinks are positively ancient. The soft drink, probably so named because it contained no “hard” alcohol, is typically comprised of carbonated water (sometimes non-carbonated), flavoring, and a sweetener.

Joseph Priestley of England is credited with creating the carbonated water, or soda water, in 1767 that became the core of today’s soft drink. The American soft drink got its start through soda fountains, first appearing in the mid-19th Century, primarily in pharmacies and then at lunch counters. Those soda fountains, of course, may have been how many Boomer kids were first introduced to soft drinks or, at the very least, ice cream sodas. (My personal favorite growing up in New York was the chocolate “egg cream,” made from chocolate syrup, soda water, and a splash of milk… no “egg” or “cream” to speak of.) Bottling technology pushed the consumption of soft drinks to new heights. …”

Author Silverstein speaks of Western’s, Bozo the Clown, Life cereal, the game of Life, Candyland, Scrabble, Disney, Coppertone, McDonalds, oh the list is filled and goes on!

“…You may have used Brylcreem because, “A little dab’ll do ya.” As an adolescent girl, you may have carefully washed your face with Palmolive soap, shampooed your hair with Prell…”

This is just a great book filled with memories…childhood memories…our childhood memories.
