Would a Baby Even Drink 7-Up?

The Collectors Weekly site did a feature this week on old print ads touting dangerous products, such as this one for the pesticide DDT.

This one for 7-Up caught my eye. It features a baby drinking the "un-cola" and recommends adding it to milk for a delicious treat.

You have to admire the moxie of these marketers, but I'm pretty sure no babies ever really drank 7-Up.

Small kids typically don't like carbonated beverages because of the bubbles ("too spicy").

Even Elliot, who's almost 4, wouldn't touch soda (not that we're forcing it on him). But it's true I've never offered to mix it with milk.
