The Bottom Line
Question: This soft drink's original name was "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda". What was it?
Answer: The original awkward name was changed to 7Up Lithiated Lemon Soda. Then, finally, it was just 7Up. Until 1950, 7Up did contain lithium. Lithium is a naturally-occurring substance. Its most well-known use now is as a drug to treat bi-polar illness. It also is used in lithium batteries and some kinds of lubricating grease.
