Big Red soda Mon, 03/19/07 1:19 PM (permalink)
Is Big Red sold only in certain states? I know it's not sold out of the U.S., but I'm just curious. It's one of those sodas that go great on a Sunday morning with barbacoa tacos, tamales, potatoes, eggs, beans, and bacon. Yeah, my husband's 97 year old grandma makes us eat huge breakfasts like that on weekends when we visit!!

      They offer it here in WA state. I know you could order it off the web.

          Wow. Must be rough when Grandma cooks up that kind of meal. Yummy.

                i never had this stuff but i have soft drink related questions for those who might know
                whatever happened to DIXI COLA which was big in the Baltimore, Maryland area back in the early/mid 1960's? It even had it's own radio jingle: "shout out for Dixi-Dixi Cola"

                Does anybody know whatever happened to Suburban Club Beverages? They made almond smash, golden gingerale and orange among others-haven't seen them either in many years.

                  I know it's sold here in Texas.In fact their bottling plant is over on Farm Road 78 in either Kirby
                  or San Antonio.The area it's located in kind of runs together so I'm not sure what area it's in.Been there for years.And yes I think it's regional.We lived on Fort Meade,Maryland from 1970 to 71 cause my dad was at NSA for the AirForce.I don't recall Dixi Soda,but we bought Shasta and I think also White Rock.
