7 Up wasn’t always so easy to remember (Fun Facts about Food)
Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda
That’s about what the original developer thought would be an appropriate name for people to have to say every time they wanted his lemon-lime drink.
Until 1950, like a lot of other sodas that weren’t purely sweet drinks, it also had a mood stabilizing drug (lithium citrate) in it. Given the obesity epidemic, maybe we should go back to the time where sodas were considered medications instead of constant kid drinks. ;)
