Now I Know – Five Cents for a Half-Century

Coca-Cola was invented by an Atlanta pharmacist in 1886, with bottles of the bubbly elixir costing five cents. Nearly 150 years later, it’s still around, and arguably as popular as ever. It rarely comes in the glass bottles commonly found during its first 50 to 100 years, as glass has given way to plastic. A 20-ounce bottle will run you anywhere from $1.50 to $2.50, give or take, in the United States.
