...before or after they removed the coke?

I remember going to the drug store in the '50s and buying a five cent Coke at the lunch counter. If I was loaded, I'd spend another five cents and get a cherry Coke. Mixed before my eyes from syrup and carbonated water and served in one of these great Coke glasses as shown. Wow, did it ever taste good.

Having a Coke was a special treat back then. Nowadays some people drink the stuff by the gallon, it seems. The last time I had a Coke, years ago, it didn't taste nearly as good as the memory.
