The Birthplace of Pepsi - New Bern, NC

While we were on New Bern, we went to the Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola. I got a Pepsi!

They also had a penny machine with Pepsi designs, so I got 3 flattened pennies for my penny collection. One of them says "Brad's Drink". That is what it was called before it was named Pepsi. They had lots of Pepsi things in there like Santas, old bottles and things like that.

I picked up a glass with some history written on it for my Papa. He loves Pepsi :)

I hope you can go too!

MORE NOTES FROM MOM...

This was very fun for Jessica. She wanted to go and get something for her Grandfather.

They had a short film running on a t.v. above the counter telling the story of Pepsi. It was pretty neat to be in the same store that "Brad's Drink" was invented. You can't miss it. The Birthplace of Pepsi is located in historic New Bern.
