While it is only a Pepsi gift shop, it was fun to let the kids buy a bottle out of the old style ice box and pry open the top.

My soda of choice is Pepsi, so this was a must see on my trip to downtown New Bern ! There is a video of the drinks history, souvenirs with Pepsi logo, a friendly soda jerk and small old fashion tables and chairs allow you to sit and sip !

My friend and I visited as a part of our mutual birthday celebration. (We share the same birthdate) We chatted with Phil for quite some time and left feeling like old friends.

Just because it’s interesting history is worth a brief stop in. Buy a Pepsi just for fun. There are some nice souvenirs.

Just really a store and soda stand. Everything about Pepsi and more to buy. No admission fee. Easy to work around and enjoy Pepsi.
