I just miss Coke made with cane sugar. Not the tasteless crap they bottle today made with corn syrup.
Many years ago, my ex and I went to Nassau in the Bahamas for a vacation. They bottle all their sodas there with cane sugar. When we returned home, we packed about 10 cans of Coke in our suitcases. At the airport, the customs guys went nuts! They said, most people bring back jewelry and crystal, etc. But, Coca-Cola?

Nehi Peach, Grape, and other flavors are sold here in the NC. Just had a Peach over the weekend. They can be found in the Wilmington area. Not sure about anywhere else.

You can order cans from this website

but nothing is better than the long neck.

Has anyone mentioned the Corr's and Sharon Corr's lines of all-natural sodas? The line included an incredibly good ginger ale with ginger sediment. It also included the odd "Cel-Ray" soda, apparently a celery-flavored pop.

in the ethnic section of my local grocery store there used to be an apple flavored soda, it was fantastic. I think it was central america.

Also I can not think a Tab with out thinking of Bobcat Goldthwaite

what ever happened to Slice?
I remember when we took a trip to Myrtle Beach in the early 80's and discovered Mandarin Orange Slice, with 10% juice. It was cheap as dirt, since it was new and still in test phase. We took home several cases. A year later you could buy it in the local grocery store in Upstate, NY.

Although we went through several cases of the orange and lemon lime Slice drinks, I still prefer Sunkist and 7up - probably because I grew up with the taste. Which is funny I say I "grew up" on it, because my mother did not stock soda in our house until around the time we bought all that Slice. Still, I can remember choosing Sunkist as my treat at the 7-11. Although, Sunkist was new compared to Orange Crush, and I remember struggling on which one to pick. Ironically, today, both Sunkist and Orange Crush are made by Schweppes.

Here in the NYC Metro area, the local Pepsi bottler replaced Slice with Sierra Mist.

Score- Cherry Cola Slice became Wild Cherry Pepsi by simply changing the can colors. I believe some of the more exotic flavors, Pineapple comes to mind, are still sold under the "SLICE" label.

I agree...about coke with cane sugar from poster twinwillow...
All these sodas would be great if today makers used real cane sugar against the horrible "corn syrup" BAN CORN SYRUP!!!!!!

"I've come to sell ki-ora, tastes like ice cream soda, without the ala-moda, or the ice cream soda jerk..."

I truly thought I was the only person to remember this.

I miss Mello Yellow (another Mountain Dew ripoff), Crystal Pepsi, Hoffman Sodas, Vigor Sodas, all the Nehis, Pepsi-Light.


Also, does anyone else remember Apple Slice? Grape Slice? 7-Up Gold?


To add to another poster's comment about Diet Mountain Dew Code Red not being available in NY: It's not available in NJ either. It IS, however, available in Florida. I was shocked when I saw it last year. They have that there and the Tropicana Sugar Free Fruit Punch. Only the Orangeade and Lemonade are available in NJ. ;(

back in the 60's in the baltimore area there was a cola named DIXI that came both in bottles(short, stubby ones) and cans. haven't seen it in years.
it even had a radio slogan "shout out for DIXI- Dixi cola"

is it still around anywhere? same with Suburban Club Beverages.

About Clicqout Club--- i grew up in Millis Ma where it was made---great sodas---and not just for mixers-they had a full line of flavors that were all made with cane sugar and natural flavors and TWP ginger ales--Pale Dry--the classic High ball mixer--and James Bonds mixer of choice by the way---and Golden Ginger Ale---fuller---more ginger beer like and wonderful. I worked in the plant as a kid---used to unload rail cars full of returned glass bottles. BTW--they were the first bottlers to put soda in cans!for a bit of history of the company---check this out http://www.clicquotclubcafe.com/History.htm

Also--just saw Grapette in Walmart the other day---wasn't in the classic small bottles--but in a can--figured it was probably only Grapette in Name Only--but next time i see it i will give it a try.

7-UP Gold: still have an unopened 10-oz bottle (right here next to the laptop as I type this) that
I picked up in 1988 at a Kroger in Sidney, Ohio, on my way home to Florida.

And as for Slice, about a year ago, Wal-Mart was featuring diet versions in their fliers (although
not at all their locations) - the closest I might be able to find it would be in Tallahassee &
points east....

YES!! I remember that. They had Grape and some kind of Cherry or something. Not for nothing, but it was HORRIBLE. It was branded as Pepsi-One Slice. YUCK!!

I bought it once. When I went back to Wal-Mart they didn't even have in on the shelves anymore. Guess I wasn't the only one that thought it was nasty

Ours here didn't even have it on the shelves to begin with, but that's typical of Buffalo Rock, the
Pepsi distributor for this area: because of previous agreements, they bottled 7-UP & Sunkist instead
of Sierra Mist (although they finally made the switch last year) & Slice.

One of the Food Channel shows had a feature on Grapette. It is only sold at Wal-mart and the syrup for the drink is still made by Grapette. Supposedly it is the authentic formula. Wal-mart also sells Orangette.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rondo_%28soft_drink%29

One of my favorite drinks as a kid was Rondo, a lemon flavored soft drink. According to the Wiki article, it was made in the late 70s and early 80s, but does not explain why it went away, or what soft drink company made the stuff.

I've been looking for Jones chocolate soda for a couple of years now in central Illinois.
I swear Canfield's used to make a chocolate soda, too, but all they have around here is the diet chocolate version.

Jones chocolate fudge soda is discontinued. At least Jones keeps a list of discontinued flavors on their web site:
http://www.jonessoda.com/files/products-retired.php

Note the comments on the left hand side of the web page from former customers of the discontinued flavors.

Only the flavor in the middle, and it was always out of the bottle. It tasted better.

Almond Smash is available in 2 ltr. bottles at the Mars grocery store in Lutherville, MD.  I have also recently found Almond Smash at Baltimore area Walgreens stores.

My Dad used to mix Upper 10 with his Bourbon for his evening "Highball" before dinner. I guess today's version would be "7 and 7". When I would sneak some of his Upper 10 (glass quart bottles) I found it to be a bit more tart and fizzy than 7-Up.

Growing up outside Cincinnati in the 50's/60's, Barq's Root Beer, grape, red creme soda, and orange all came in extra-large glass bottles - seemed like they were at least 12oz if not larger. They still make the RB and creme soda but it's a far cry from the original, probably that corn syrup thing, although the bottle had something to do with it too...

Riku The Surfer

Anybody have that one soda that you always loved and then one day while searching for it...it's gone.

Mine...is the great blast of citrusy goodness SURGE. God I loved that stuff. Granted Coke made Vault which is alright I guess...but it's way too Sprite-y for my memory of "FEED THE RUSH".

So anyone else have a favorite soda that's now in the graveyard?


I know this is an old thread but had to leave my .02 when I came to it.

My favorite drink in the world 15 or 20 years ago was Crystal Pepsi. I loved it from the first sip, it also looked like water, "clear". Besides the "clear" look it had a sweeter taste and a little different recipe than normal Pepsi. I bought this soda by the case full at the time and thought it would last 4ever. Pepsi screwed up by changing the recipe and making a newer Pepsi shortly after the Crystal Pepsi came out but the new clear was a citis clear drink and it tasted horrible although it was still clear looking. Soon after there was no more Crystal Pepsi at all. I would guess (not sure) Crystal Pepsi was only around for a few years at most and this was about 15 or 20 years ago. Anyway, I miss that Crystal Pepsi and wish they would bring back the original Crystal Pepsi. I still have an un opened bottle of it to this day in hopes it would become valuable. It never has as of yet and I saw quite a few on ebay (as of 5 or so years ago anyway) Year after year I was tempted to open and taste it, I have had it for 15 years or so but I have a feeling it would smell and taste horrible after so long even though it is air tight.

Regular Pepsi is my favorite soft drink but Pepsi Clear was the best!  Old commercial  Crystal Pepsi Commercial
