What’s your favorite slogan? Mine, from the 70s, “Converse All-Stars, limousines for the feet.”
The year was 1907, and legend has it that President Theodore Roosevelt had just finished a cup of coffee at the Hermitage, the Nashville home of President Andrew Jackson, when he declared it “good to the last drop.” Ten years later, the folks who brewed the cup, a company called Maxwell House, made the former president’s coinage their official slogan. Some 90 years later, it still is.
Like diamonds, great slogans last forever. (As a matter of fact, De Beers’ rock solid “a diamond is forever” line is 64 years old.) Still, some of the most popular brands change their slogans annually. Forget nine decades. In the last nine years, Dr. Pepper has experimented with a dozen slogans around the world.
