A history is told by the lady behind the counter; the original recipe is there on the wall. Memorabilia, and some chairs to rest on, after walking.

Great little history lesson about Pepsi Co. They will make you Pepsi floats. There is all sorts of Pepsi memorabilia and items for purchase. I would love to take my family back to visit. The recipe for the original Pepsi is written on the wall.

Even though I was born in N.C. I don't thank I ever knew that New Bern was the birthplace of Pepsi-Cola. The shop is actually the pharmacy where Pepsi-Cola was created. Enjoyed a Pepsi float while there and purchased a few souvenirs.

I visited with a friend to take flat Stanley. It is a fun place. It is probably what you would expect. Lots of tee shirts, postcards and Pepsi products. A place all tourist need to visit while in New Bern.

On the inside walls are some great early 1900s pictures of what this building looked like then, and some of the early Pepsi adverts, plus 5 cent Pepsi machines.
