      jvsmom, I grew up in Colorado Springs and we had a pop shoppe that was attatched to a Loaf and Jug convenience store. I remember looking for returnables to trade in for full sodas in the summertime.
      You're right about them having soooo many flavors that it was hard to choose. I havn't seen any stores around for 20 years or more.

        When I was a kid I used to drink this bubble gum flavored soda made by Fago. It was pink. Does anyone else remember that?

          "It's Cott to be good!"

          Fresca -- I know it's back, but is it the same as it was in the old days?

          Birch beer (I'm from Connecticut).

          And...Pepsi Light -- it was like a diet Pepsi with a twist of lemon. I think it was taken off the market in the U.S. because of saccharine. Saw it some vending machines in Mexico about 10 years ago....it was in a robin's egg blue can, with yellow writing.

                Old TAB, not the new version that is out there now.

                and

                Tropicana Diet Orange Soda, this one came out for a short time last year, the stores around here could never keep it in stock, and then it went POOF.
                I called the customer service number and was told it wasn't selling so they pulled it off the market. BAH HUMBUG!!!

                  As a kid I loved the original recipe Royal Crown Cola. I loved the value of a full 12 ounce bottle for a dime and was outraged when it went up to 12 cents...what audacity! As many have stated about their favorites, my love went out the window as soon as corn syrup began replacing cane sugar. Today's RC Cola bears no resemblance to the original product.

                  I also enjoyed the original Dr. Pepper but have the same complaint. Sure these products are still around but are a shadow of what they once were. As a result, I do not drink much soda anymore. My current favorite beverage is iced tea sans sweetener.

                    I love Ice tea, growing up we used the liquid saccharin sweetner, then it "caused" cancer and it went away for a while, now it is back but I have switched to the pink stuff!!

                    Equal, YUCK
                    Splenda, YUCK

                    Sweet & Low, YUMMY!!

                    I guess I am truly a child of the seventies

                      Most sodas now use corn syrup instead of sugar.That makes a huge difference.I bought some soda made in mexico, who still uses sugar, and what a difference!!!It even holds its fizz for days....And Coke made in Mexico is soooooooo much better.Has that old "burn"going down that I loved years ago.

                        Faygo's bright pink Bubble Gum soda was unique in that it was the one soda pop I simply could not finish. Maybe if I still had my preadolescent tastebuds.... but my adult tastebuds found it way too sweet.

                        My favorite longlost pops--
                        Dr Bob's Vitamin-Enriched Tangerine Soda was a Chicago product of the early 90s. The nutrition info label was incredible-- a soda that gave you zinc?!?!?!?!?!? The taste was like an orange seltzer, very pleasing to the adult palate.
                        Rondo was Schweppes' 1978 entry in the Golden Girl/Sundrop/Hillbilly Juice/Mountain Dew category. "Rondo SLAMS DOWN THIRST!" was the theme as they tried to market as a macho soda.

                            Ski is fairly popular in Southwestern Indiana. It is bottled locally by the double cola folks. It must be a little chaeper than the more popular drinks. I see it frequently at church functions and at the local ball parks.

                            Thanks

                                fabulousoyster: Shasta makes a pineapple soda that's available, as are some nehi flavors, in Louisiana. My favorite Nehi was peach.

                                kayteedee: Regular Fresca tastes the same as always to me, though around my house we seem to like the new [peach & black cherry] flavors also. Fresca is the only diet drink my wife will touch.

                                  Ort-We've always had a soda called 'Cactus Cooler' out here on the left coast. It's an orange/pineapple flavor. I'll have to check who makes it. Does that sound like the one from Canada Dry?

                                    YES to the "old" Coke burn! And in the original glass bottle, if you pleasm.

                                    In some parts of Europe they call Diet Coke "Coke Light".

                                    I'm a Pibb fan, from way back. It's getting really hard to find, here in the south...

                                        Living here in Arizona, we don't get Nehi. I remember in Indianapolis, I dearly loved the cream sodas, both yellow and red.

                                        Someone said something about a nasty thing sold as a beverage. Our daughter was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. When she came home, she brought us a can of Arabian Pepsi, but cautioned us not to drink it. Well, I got desparate one day and opened it and tried a sip. That had to be the worst stuff I ever had in my mouth. It made me want tro find a skunk to bite to get the taste out of my mouth. A funny story, once my mom wanted to buy some Schweppe's Ginger Beer at the A&P near us. She got a new teeny-bopper checker, who informed my mom she couldn't ring it up. My mom explained that it was a soft drink, and that it was what they called ginger ale in England. We finally had to have the manager come over and ring up the sale. We could hear him chewing the girl out all the way out of the store.

                                          Cajunking, are you talking about Tropicana SugarFree Orange Ade which comes in a can? I still drink this all the time, but it has no caffeine and is non-carbonated.

                                          I used to like Diet Slice Mandarin Orange soda. When it first came out, it had 10% real orange juice and was great. Then as usual they changed the formula and messed up a great product and it went away.

                                          Then I switched to Diet Orange Crush and it was discontinued. But I am happy now with both diet Sunkist orange soda and Tropicana SugarFree Orange Ade.

                                            Someone said something about a nasty thing sold as a beverage. Our daughter was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during Desert Storm. When she came home, she brought us a can of Arabian Pepsi, but cautioned us not to drink it. Well, I got desparate one day and opened it and tried a sip. That had to be the worst stuff I ever had in my mouth. It made me want tro find a skunk to bite to get the taste out of my mouth. A funny story, once my mom wanted to buy some Schweppe's Ginger Beer at the A&P near us. She got a new teeny-bopper checker, who informed my mom she couldn't ring it up. My mom explained that it was a soft drink, and that it was what they called ginger ale in England. We finally had to have the manager come over and ring up the sale. We could hear him chewing the girl out all the way out of the store.
                                            I'll bet that Pepsi was made with desalinated water - in Saudi there is very, very little fresh water and nearly all of it is produced in desalination plants - problem is desalinated water has an unbelievably wretched taste.

                                              Miss the small chocolate Brownie drink ice cold out of a ice water cooler!!! Yahoo does nothing for me in comparison. Also, a small bottle of Grapette. That was gone long ago. As for cola drinks, I believe Canada Dry made one call Jamacian Cola that had some carbonated snap to it. Find I only like colas that have additional flavor in them but for most part just make strong Luzianne ice tea for a real thrist quencer!

                                                Barney, I miss Grapette too. I remember when they took it off the market because of the purple dye, then made it with a coloring that turned it gray. The color alone turned me off and I stopped buying it. And it didn't taste the same. I bought some Faygo grape but that was a poor imitation. Those little bottles of the original stuff--I'd pay good money for them if they'd start making it again.

                                                  It was a Mountain Dew clone that wasn't as sweet--made by Royal Crown, I think.

                                                  I remember a donkey being on the bottle.

                                                    Anyone remember Ki-Ora ? it was nominally a New Zealand product, fruity/creamy flavours as I recall - whether bottled in NZ or merely licensed to Canada I don't know, but it was distributed in Central Canada somtime in the late 60's/early 70's.

                                                    Also Bull's Eye Ginger Ale - very gingery.

                                                    Also Canada Dry's not too sweet Tropical Punch - it may have been called something else.

                                                    Alsp Grape Crush -a coke hour favorite at summer camp in VT. Is it still made by any chance ?

                                                      Calandra was great! I have a picture of myself at about 4 yrs old clutching a Calandra bottle... in fact..I found a bottle at a local antique store...had to buy it... it now sits in my kitchen as a reminder of the good old days.

                                                          Not a discontinued soft drink but Nehi grape and orange was one of my favorites in my youth. Although not widely available, I found it yesterday at the Mast General Store which just opened recently in downtown Knoxville. They had them cold in a cooler.

                                                            Jockey52:
                                                            Grape Crush is still being sold, at least in Northern Virginia.
                                                            It is in the soda section with Orange Crush, Dad's Root Beer, and Stewart's sodas.

                                                            Speaking of flavored sodas, there was a brand called "Crass" in the '70s that made excellent grape and orange.

                                                            And don't forget this great little concoction:
