Mental Floss might tell you everything you wanted to know, or more, about Me and My RC.
Royal Crown Cola used to be one of the most innovative companies in the beverage industry. It came out with the first canned soda, the first caffeine-free soda, and the first 16-ounce soda. It was the first to take diet cola mainstream, and the first to stage nationwide taste tests.
The things you learn ... RC is the successor company to Nehi.  And the original RC Cola (that "cola" was once contested, which might be one reason Xerox was and Kimberly Clark remain vigilant about the vernacularization of their brand names) remains the chaser of choice for a Moon Pie.

That diet cola?  How many different ways can we ring the changes on "well-intentioned but poorly thought-out law?"
