Soda Fountains in Kansas

Thursday, August 2, 2018

During the glory days of the soda fountain, Kansas pharmacists created tonics and curatives that evolved into refreshments like the Brown Cow, the Mudslide, and Don’t Care. Mineral springs, World War I luxury taxes, and bottled soda pop played a role in these ice cream concoctions that became a profitable sideline business. This presentation will explore soda fountains in Kansas today and the revival of soda fountains throughout the nation. Presented by Cindy Higgins. Cindy is a journalist and Kansas historian.
