The first product in the Royal Crown line was Royal Crown Ginger Ale in 1905, followed by Royal Crown Strawberry, and Royal Crown Root Beer. The company was renamed Chero-Cola in 1910, and in 1925 renamed Nehi Corporation after its colored and flavored drinks. In 1934, Chero-Cola was reformulated by Rufus Kamm, a chemist, and re-released as Royal Crown Cola.
In 1954, Royal Crown was the first company to sell soft drinks in a can, and later the first company to sell a soft drink in an aluminum can. They famous pyramid bottle came out in the 1930s. A yellow square enclosed a depiction of four yellow pyramids on a yellow sand foreground with a red sky background. Later labels of RC remained the same color, but without the pyramids. This bottle has been a collectors favorite and is a great piece of soda history.
