Nehi Soda History
It all started in 1903 when Claude Hatcher invented his own soda to bottle and sell in his families grocery store he called it "Chero-Cola". Supposedly, Claud overheard a route salesman enter the plant one day and describe a competitors tall bottle as being "knee-high." This phrase falling on the receptive mind of Claud Hatcher became Nehi. Claude then went on to create a line of fruity beverages that he called "NEHI" in the 1920's which was destined to become one of America's best known soft drink flavour lines. A little later around 1935 he changed the chero cola formula creating "Royal Crown Cola" or "RC" as most people called it. At that point they renamed the company to Royal Crown Cola Co. Claude aslo created the first diet soda "Diet Rite" and the first low calorie soda "RC 100". Nehi is now owned by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group and they restrict the selling and distribution of Nehi throughout the country through their bottlers. This is why we had so much difficulty locating it.
