The Georgia Rambler & The Recipe

Mar 3, 2011
Remember our episode Georgia Rambler, modeled after an old Atlanta newspaper column featuring stories about interesting people from little towns all over the state? Well it was the Georgia Rambler himself, Charles Salter, who in 1979 came across Everett Beal's notebook containing what we believe to be the original recipe for Coca-Cola. Charles' son Chuck - also a writer, and the reporter who told his dad's story in the Georgia Rambler episode - has written an article about all these connections, for the magazine Fast Company. It's among the more entertaining stories coming out of this whole cola recipe saga.
