Did you know that this was one of the last years that bottled Coca Cola actually contained COCAINE? The final year was 1901. So this replica bottle has much more meaning than just a way old coke bottle.

The taste of Coke changed in a way that made me stop drinking it in the 80's. The drink started to have an artificial after taste. Unless, the bottle is glass and the drink is returned to the state that is was pre-80's you can keep it. I can remember that they went to the "fat" glass bottles before the plastic and the drink changed right around that time or not far after. Boylan makes a nice Cola in Glass bottles, artificial after taste or hyper-carbonization, just a nice Cola reminiscent of old Coke.

I think that the major beverage and food companies have conditioned people to liking the taste of the new artificial products. Those who commonly ate the candies of that late 70's and early 80's that began to be filled with artificial sweetener and flavors were conditioned in a way that they did not notice or simply like the taste of the new artificial coke. Try a foreign made Coke in a glass bottle like the ones from Mexico.

Try Coca-Cola from the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania instead. It is made in the United States and contains sucrose, much like Coca-Cola is supposed to. And they have it available in 2 liter form, too, though they also bottle smaller quantities.

And unlike Mexican Coca-Cola, which costs a little more, Pennsylvanian Coca-Cola is available in regular grocery stores throughout the Lehigh Valley and even in to the Poconos, and for the same price as HFCS Coca-Cola.

What marks the difference between an original and the replica?
