This is arguably the first bottle in my collection, picked up when I was 8 years old. I was down in Ocala Florida visiting my grandparents, and they had a six pack of these. Someone said it was a collectible bottle when they noticed my interest in the colorful painted label, nothing like the soda bottles in New York that I had yet come across at that age, so I decided to keep my soda unopened instead of drinking it there with them all, and I've been carrying it around with me ever since. Now in my mid forties I'm digging deep into this vast hoard of junk that's been following me around for decades and attempting to cash out. I've a mind to put it on ebay for 20 bucks and see if I get any bites, but I don't know how I'd be able to ship it full of liquid. Should I finally pop the top after 36 years years and let the kitchen sink have a flat syrupy treat, or should I leave the vintage beverage inside as an added value to potential purchasers?
