ANSWER - Tuesday Trivia: Products

For what product - still being sold today - were the first promotional coupons offered more than 100 years ago?

Coca-Cola, in 1894. Asa Candler, the enterprising druggist who purchased the Coke formula, distributed handwritten tickets through employees and magazines, offering a free glass of what was then a soda-fountain drink.

Congratulations to Yellaphant for being the first to get the correct answer!
