It was the first can drink to have the tab you pull to get to the drink. I really don't know but I haven't seen any for sale for years.
I wonder why it's still being produced.
I know why it's called that, but only because I Googled the last time it showed up in a post, so I'll keep it to myself.
Now I have to google it!!
You should, and so should @Collecting Nut, as Wikipedia's story doesn't agree with his...
I will goggle it but you should know that my story was a joke.
Not sure if it is still being made. Just a copied picture from Google
Diet Rite cola, owned by The Royal Crown Company; previously, Diet Rite had been the only sugarless soda on the market. Tab was marketed to consumers who wanted to "keep tabs" on their weight.
Coca-Cola's marketing research department used its IBM 1401 computer to generate a list of over 185,000 four-letter words with one vowel, adding names suggested by the company's own staff; the list was stripped of any words deemed unpronounceable or too similar to existing trademarks. Of a final list of about twenty names, "Tabb" was chosen, influenced by the possible play on words, and shortened to "Tab" during development. Packaging designer Robert Sidney Dickens gave the name the capitalization pattern ("TaB") used in the logo as well as creating a new bottle design for the soft drink.
For a time in the 1970s, Coca-Cola introduced six variety flavors of Tab (all of which were also sugar-free): Root Beer, Lemon-Lime, Ginger Ale, Black Cherry, Strawberry, and Orange. A caffeine-free version of the original Tab flavor was introduced in 1983, alongside caffeine-free versions of Coca-Cola and Diet Coke. Tab Clear, a caramel color-free version of Tab, was released in the United States in 1992, and subsequently in the United Kingdom and Japan. Tab Clear was discontinued in 1994.
In 2006, Coca-Cola introduced Tab Energy. Though it shares the Tab branding, its formula is entirely different from that of the standard cola: it is sweetened with sucralose and has a sour, tart flavor."
"In October 2020, Coca-Cola announced that it would discontinue Tab at the end of the year."

I did walk by the armored truck man who collects the change from this coin star a while back.
Got a peek with the door open.
OMG!! It had huge bin filled to the top and had to weigh a insane amount, not just that but the floor inside the machine had coins everywhere. I guess they don't pick up those scattered fallen ones much.
I did a slow walk by to look but I could feel the eyes on me.
I wanted to ask him a few questions but knew it wasn't to be..
