I had a sudden flash back to those "Pepsi Challenge" commercials from the early 80s
I had the Coke version of this. The "drip-free rubber insert" was not in fact drip-free, and the thing didn't work very well. It looked cool, though, and I am guessing it's probably still in the attic at Mom and Dad's house.
I had one of these, though it was a Coke "machine". This was back in the mid '60s. Back then, you used an actual Coke bottle, which fit on the dispenser adaptor thingie. It only accepted the deposit-type bottles which were already on the way out by that point.
I remember seeing these in the catalogs, and their real-life cousins in burger places (pre-self service). Sort of miss the big, built-like-Buicks soda delivery systems of the past. My favorite was the vending machine with the skinny glass door and the pull-out bottles -- never a toy of that one, unless you count those little tin boxes of recent vintage.This was also the era when girls had metal refrigerators of various sizes that didn't keep anything cold. Never understood those at all.
How many times did I circle that in the Sears or J.C. Penney's Christmas catalog? As many times as I didn't receive one for Christmas, is how many.
