My kids and I were visiting with my grandmother (Grandma) the other day and a conversation came up about special things that kids get to do over at their grandparent’s house. And one of the things we discussed were special things that I used eat at my grandmother’s house when I was a little girl.
I have such fond memories of my grandparent’s old home in general and can even remember most of the details of furniture and decorating in the house. I can close my eyes sometimes and even remember the smells and the warm feeling I got from that home and the people living in it.
I am so fortunate to still have my grandmother in my life and I think it is wonderful that my kids get to experience many of the things with my grandmother that I did when I was little.
Well it just so happens that SocialMoms and Coca-Cola® have teamed up to introduce a new blogging program that invites mom bloggers like myself to share “A fond family mealtime memory inspired by Coke”.
I have many special mealtimes memories at my Grandparents that this post made me think of, but here are just a few that really stick out in my head.
One of those special memories I had at my grandparent’s was Coke Floats. This was something that I usually have on warm summer days. And even though it wasn’t quite a meal, there was nothing better then playing outside all day, and then coming in and having a Coke float with Vanilla Ice Cream. It was so yummy!
Created in Atlanta, Georgia, by Dr. John S. Pemberton, Coca-Cola was first offered as a fountain beverage by mixing Coca-Cola syrup with carbonated water. Coca-Cola was introduced in 1886, patented in 1887, registered as a trademark in 1893 and by 1895 it was being sold in every state and territory in the United States. In 1899, The Coca-Cola Company began franchised bottling operations in the United States.
