    Sacrilege!
    An RC cola and a Moon Pie are high level cuisine in the South! Now I'm wondering about you!

    RC is nasty. Sorry. Moon pies are good, but RC? Blech.

    Hey y'all now watch yo mouth. R a C Cola was pretty good back when that's all we could get on a hot summer day.

    But all this proves Buff is that you stayed awake during Cultural Training Class.

    That's part of "SPY TRAINING!"___:jester:

    I agree with you about the Jiffy being Muffins, just as long as we keep what they are in perspective. Now they aren't my grandmother's or my mother's, or my aunts, well several aunts, prize corn bread. But if I keep that in mind while I'm eating it, I can sleep at night.

    Now you ARE guilty of a bit, no a Huge bit, of Blasphemy though. I confess I did drink a few (Thousand) R o C Colas back in the day, mostly out of necessity, and will admit that I prefer them to Pepsi, but they are NOT! no where NEAR! as Good as that all time classic southern Favorite and nectar of the God's Coca Cola. To me Pepsi taste like Embalming Fluid.

    And Coke taste like cough syrup to me....... I usually don't drink Cola except when eating at a restaurant that doesn't have Mt Dew

    We can agree to disagree, but you and I do have similarities, besides the Jiffy. I do like Mountain Dew.

    Well it was the Peanuts that made the RC Cola Palatable, so yes I can see why you'd put them in Pepsi.

    Around here in Texas it's a Tow Sack. I have no clue where that came from, it's just what they called it all my life. A tote bag is something a woman or a hippie carries.

    Um...... no. I've eaten enough triple decker Moon Pies in my youth to give a small village diabetes. I have never heard of the Moon Pie and RC thing before this thread.

    Well since you are such a Moon Pie fan and are now close, you should go to Mobile on New Years Eve for the Moon Pie festival. Bring in the new year watching the giant moon pie drop at midnight.

    Didn't pay attention growin' up, didja. :tooth: :jester: Toe Sack, as in burlap sack in which potatoes were shipped in. They came in 50# bag size the same relative size as a 50# grain bag made from burlap or coarse cloth, and in a 100# size bag, too. That was before the Dept. of Labor decided 100# sacks of taters and feed were too heavy to tote around. :tooth:

    And the cloth flour sacks made from that pretty gingham pattern got turned into dresses and curtains and tablecloths back then, too. There were even some cotton, oat, wheat, fescue, and clover seed suppliers that got in on that and made pretty patterns on the cloth sacks their product was shipped in to the seed suppliers that sold to farmers.

    That's right.

    RC is Ok, Coca-Cola is heaven sent (drinking some right now as I write this!), but I can get water out of the bilges of any boat in the harbor that tastes better than Pepsi!

    Well no professor, I never saw it spelled. It was one of those words I only knew phonetically. Mr. Louie Walker (No relation) used to let us go out to his farm and pick veggies for cheap. Well the whole town actually. My mother would always get a couple boxes of taters, best I can remember, white AND red and a couple bushel Baskets of Green Beans. Then a sack or two tomatoes and we were in hog heaven.

    But I do remember some folks calling burlap bags Potato sacks. Seadrift wasn't the hub of the universe. There was no opera or orchestra there except the locals Pickin country music. But the grocery pickins there were plentiful because so many people were raising enough food to feed the whole town.

    What?

    That sound you heard was millions of poor southern folk rolling over on their grave.

    RC cola wasn't the best tasting coke, but that combo is one that's been around long enough to be a commandment. When the Lord comes back to gather up southerners, he'll dispense RC Cola and banana moon pies along with robes and crowns.

    And as for burlap, if you mention that word down here you'll get funny looks. Ask for a croker sack, and you'll get one. (Some folks calls it a tobacco sack.)
  • BuffcoBuffco Senior Member Posts: 6,244 Senior Member
    Speaking of sacks... Old feller told me that back when girls wore flour sack panties, it made their...... Taste like dumplings.

    (Flour used to come in an actual cloth sack and poor folks used it to make garments)

    Actually, I Didn't get particular about soda pop until I was quite a bit older. When I was real young I didn't care Coke, RC, Pepsie, Didn't matter, as long as it was cold, sweet, and fizzy I was happy.

    I reckon you missed this little feller :jester: in my post. As Foghorn Leghorn would say, "It's a joke, son, it's a joke!" :roll2:

    When I was growing up my Mom and Dad always put out a HUGE garden and a lot of canning went on putting up stuff in Mason jars. The taters were buried in sawdust in the root cellar to keep through the winter. I've strung my share of green beans, and shelled lots of green beans too big to break, and pinto beans, and various kinds of peas for canning. And shucking, desilking, and cutting corn off the cob for canning. It was all hands on deck when canning time rolled around.

    Favorite time of year was hog and steer killin' in the fall. I got to stir the fat to make lard in the big old cast iron cauldron. Cracklin bread for a while was good stuff.

    I grew up in a farming community 18 miles outside town with dairies, beef cattle farms, and everybody had a big garden for growing their own food. Flour, salt and spices were what was mostly store bought. We raised a big field of corn for making corn meal; as soon as I was big enough to turn the crank on the corn sheller, I got a workout shelling out a couple of burlap bags full to take to the grist mill for grinding into cornmeal. First ground meal (once through the grinder) was for making 'dog bread' for the hounds, and twice ground was for human consumption.

    The pairing of the RC cola and moon pie in the South has been around since before I was born. Like my maternal Granddad used to say, "Anyone that eats a Moon Pie with anything but a RC cola bears watchin', son." :roll2:

    RC was the first Cola in the large size. While Coca-Cola was in 8 oz size, the RC was 12 oz. The original bottles had a painted scene of the pyramids and a camels and date palm trees on it, IIRC. Here's my rememberance of the RC Cola Moon Pie song, from Lonzo and Oscar in 1951 or so.
