Hello All,
Thanks drpep. I got a kick out of seeing Kickapoo Joy Juice still around.
Actually, double-cola's only draw was that you got twice the amount for the
same price as a coke or pepsi. The taste was not too good.
Ah, but Kickapoo, thanks again, just to see the bottle with the hillbilly on it
made me happy.
I'm basically a Dr. Pepper man of choice.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

This makes me thing of Porto Rico (correct spelling) soda out of Philadelphia. Not exactly a favorite, however. Probably one of the nastier things ever sold as a beverage.

I STILL have a bottle of this in my pantry along with a tall can of Busch beer with the pull tab, back when the cans were blue and white.

Chock-Ola, a bottled, carbonated chocolate "milk" drink. If I remember right, they used whey instead of milk, but it was a good tasting kid drink.

We can not get Diet MT Dew Code Red in Upstate NY anymore. If you have to drink diet it is the best available.

I always loved Pineapple Soda as a child, I don't remember the brand, but it really tasted great.

I know that Nehi sodas are available in some parts of the country, but it's not out West.

Nehi Orange was my favorite orange soda when I was a kid. Other flavors I remember include lime, cherry, grape (Radar O'Reilly's favorite in MASH) and strawberry (I think).

Fess up people--if Nehi is still available in your area, clue me in...

Chocola (probably the same stuff you used to drink) used to be made at a bottling plant on the southside of Indianapolis, and tasted pretty good. No idea if was ever bottled elsewhere, but I think that plant's gone now. YooHoo looks (looked?) the same but isn't (I tried it once).

Oyster-- Shasta, a brand found in many Western grocery chains, makes a Pineapple Soda in 2 liter and 12oz cans.
I saw FAYGOREDPOP at Meijers yesterday. Haven't had a REDPOP in a long time.
We see NEHI Orange and Grape at our local Wal-Mart now and then mixed in with the IBC, Stewarts, and Dr Browns sodas. usually in a 4 pack of glass bottles and quite pricie compared to the big two products.

Nehi Orange and Grape in 12oz glass bottles are all over central North Carolina and the Lumberton area. I've also seen Peach Nehi in plastic bottles somewhere on I-95 in GA or SC.

Dearfolk,
My most-lamented favorite would have to be Budwine, the elixir of the gods, made by Classic City Bottling Co. in Athens, Georgia. They also produced -- before my time -- a beverage for 3 cents named, appropriately enough, "3 Centa"!!
My cousin Dave E. Hendricks, from Ohio, would open a bottle of Budwine and shout "Smell the Budwine fumes!" when he was visiting.
Another soda I recollect liking but that disappeared was Canada Dry's short-lived Cactus Cooler. I first found that in suburban Atlanta -- Chamblee, as I recollect -- in 1967. It was history by the early 1970's.
Y'know, I really ought to wander by the Atlanta Canada Dry Bottling Plant on Murphy Avenue, S/W and see if anyone remembers Cactus Cooler.
Gotta go -- the library's closing.
Carbonatedly, Ort. Carlton in Effervescent Athens, Georgia.

The closest comparison I can think of is Delaware Punch, which might as well be defunct itself, as it's only sold in Latin America now.

I had Delaware Punch from a vending machine in Louisiana last year.

I see Nehi in convenience stores in AR, LA, MS.

In the 80s, Canada Dry made a grapefruit seltzer that was terrific (on its own or with just a splash of vodka). No sweetener, just crisp and refreshing. Then it just disappeared. I've tried other brands and they are absolutely nothing like it.

Dearfolk,
During canvasses through several regional supermarkets out here on the road, I've spotted several sodas that I thought were defunct. As soon as I return to Athens, I'll detail some of those, but since I only have a moment here, I'll make it wait until later.

P. S. Jenkins Foods of Shelby, North Carolina produces Scrapple, Liver Pudding, Liver Mush, and Hot Liver Mush. I've seen all four products on shelves in this area. Their major local competitor, Mack's Country Livermush, doesn't deliver this far west. (Oh, smell the livermush fumes!)

Delaware Punch is currently sold at least in Brookshire's grocery stores in Louisiana. Brookshire's is a chain based in Texas, so it's probably sold there also. The can says it's a Coca Cola product.

I remember Canada Dry Cactus Cooler but what I REALLY miss is Canada Dry Bitter Lemon. It was an excellent mixer with rum - my first "grown up" drink. Now I try and make do with Tonic Water and lemon. Sigh.

Canada Dry used to make all kinds of "mixers": Bitter Lemon, Lime Rickey, etc. that are long gone (and I'm not that old!). Now Scweppes makes Bitter Lemon but it's not available where I live.

Our Louisville Liquor Barn (chain-Package Store) stocks Dr Brown soda in many flavors. Celrey is one. I don't care much for it but love the Black Cherry and Root Beer.

The soft-drink flavor I miss the most, since it was discontinued a few years ago, was Stewart's Lemon Meringue. It had a nice, mild flavor that tasted just like the meringue on lemon meringue pie.
