FRESH 12oz glass bottles RC Royal Crown Cola with SUGAR!!! Since its launch in 1905, RC Cola has been a soft drink that embodies individuality and entrepreneurial spirit. RC’s crisp, clean taste distinguishes it from other colas and has become a favorite of cola drinkers throughout America. RC originated in Columbus, GA when a young pharmacist named Claud A. Hatcher decided to supply his family’s grocery store with drinks that he produced and bottled. Hatcher called his first line of beverages “Royal Crown” and the first cola product “Chero-Cola.” Other early products included Royal Crown Ginger Ale, Royal Crown Strawberry and Royal Crown Root Beer.
