The first bottles of Creomulsion sold for $1.25 each. But less than a decade later, in the midst of the Great Depression, $1.25 had become a lot of money. In fact, in 1938, the company received many requests for refunds because, at the time, a family of four could eat for a week on that amount! The Company reimbursed the customer for the product and then sent them a new bottle for free with a note saying they hoped that it would work the next time they needed a cough syrup. That year a smaller, 3-ounce bottle of Creomulsion was introduced with a new, lower retail price of 59 cents less than half as much as the original.
