30 Facts you might not know about A Christmas Story:

Do you drink soda or do you drink pop? If you're old
enough to have grown up drinking pop, then chances
are you drank Nehi, a maker of lots of flavored pops.
It's most popular flavor - Chero-Cola eventually
became Royal Crown. And that popularity resulted in
Nehi becoming the Royal Crown Cola Company. My
favorite cola which you can't get up here at the
end of the food chain. But I digress.

Nehi's trademark was a silk-stockinged lady's leg,
realistically flesh-colored, wearing a black
spike-heeled slipper. Sound familiar?

I drink neither soda nor pop parents didn't buy them, and I don't care for carbonated drinks. Now I can't drink anything cold due to lots of dental work. It's coffee and tea all the way!

There can be! I like a bit of Kahlua or Southern Comfort in coffee.
