In Baltimore back in the 60's there was a brand called Suburban and in addition to the regular flavors they had a soda called Almond Smash. I don't know if there is a soad on the market today that is similar but I remember that I liked it as a kid. I couldn't begin to describe what it tasted like.


You can still get Suburban Almond Smash and Golden Ginger Ale sodas in 2L bottles at any Mars Food Store in the Baltimore Metro area.  It is a tart cherry soda with a smooth almond finish and has been one of my faves for many years. 

Thanks, I haven't looked at this thread in awhile. I'll look for it next time I go. I never did find the Bonomo Turkish Taffy there. I understand that demand for it was very high.

If anyone knows where I can get Moxie shipped from, reasonably, I would be one happy camper.  I found one place online recently and it was only $12.00 for 24- 12oz. cans but the shipping cost was $35.00.  I was definately not that thirsty.  I have gotten it shipped to me in the past at a much lower rate.  I think around $20.00 including shipping but have lost the name and phone number.  I love Moxie.  Always drank it as a child and whenever I could get my hands on it since but its been a long time now and I would really appreciate any help.  Thanks, Miss Lillie

I've seen Shasta in Wisconsin, and Big Red was all my brother and I would drink as kids in the 70's.

I am still searching for an A-Treat distributor in the eastern Pennsylvania area.  The closer to King of Prussia, the better.  I really enjoyed buying a variety of their sodas in quart size returnable glass bottles and still have a case of empties in the wooden A-treat case they came in.

Any of the CT folks here know of places other than Luzzi Cheese in North Haven that carry Foxon Park beverages? I was going to pick up two cases of white birch today, but both Luizzi and Foxon themselves were closed.

I'm wondering if theres another place that I can use the nezt time somethhing like this happens...

I've seen Foxon Park in one or more local supermarket chains - possibly Big Y or Stop & Shop or Shaw's.

Without going thru all 549 posts, what about Mission Soda? I remember that when I grew up in Brooklyn and thought it was sooooo exotic! (California, and all).
I remember the grape and the orange flavors.
I also remember my grandmother making us "Children's Coffee" from the "cream" flavor (soda + milk).

Yeah, I keep hearing about Stop and Shop having Foxon Park, but the two ones I visited in North Haven and Hamden didn't seem to carry it. 
 
Oh well, will be back down that way soon... if not, there's always mail order.

I had a Diet Cheerwine and with all of the lauding I think I'd better try the full leaded variety.

Kish...
  I have found that the diet versions of many of the regional sodas  gets quite far from the original flavor. Cheerwine for one, but MOXIE and VERNOR's diet sodas are 'way different'.... and Diet Big Red is nothing like the original (to my taste buds).
  On the other hand the various Dr Pepper versions in both regular and diet seem to be quite close in the taste-tests. I like the Cherry Dr Pepper...it is one of the few diet sodas I will drink.

In Pittsburgh, Natrona Bottling Company seems to have a new presence; in the last six months, I've started seeing their products in many stores and restaurants.
 
I've enjoyed their root beer, but I don't know whether it's outstanding; I've found that the Plantation Mint Soda is tasty by itself and when combined with whiskey.

Hey Ralph,
  I've found that LOTS of things are "tasty" when combined with Whiskey. In fact, I think my first marriage (a distastful memory) was definitely the result of combining MOXIE with Whiskey several times prior to the event, and MANY more times after it !

Al, spirits often interfere with true love.  Always wait a few days after imbibing to propose.

I'm still looking for a soda I had back in the 60s and can't find it anywhere in the states.  It was called Pomac.   Some of the soda shops around here have just about everything but I've never seen Pomac.
 
I can mix whiskey with just about anything and it tastes good.

Just recently Sundrop has started appearing on shelves here in eastern Pa. I never saw it anywhere besides the south before. Just wondering if other areas have started getting it.

Dimmie,
I have a vague memory of POMAC from  the '60's but can't recall anything about it. I believe it is one of those brands that just 'disappeared'.
I looked it up on Wikipedia and they say it was made from  1963-69 by the Dr Pepper Company. Doctor Pepper discontinued the drink production in '69 when the Sacheren(SP) issue hit the diet-sweetener news.

Darn!  That was a good soft drink.  Not a lot of carbonation and not too sweet with no caffeine.  I'll have to drop them a note and ask them to bring it back.  Can't hurt to ask.

Sundrop -- May be back here permanently in N. Florida after its last short visit about 3-4 years ago
(that was the time when 7-Up was let go by Buffalo Rock after they finally brought Sierra Mist into
the fold -- also had Cheerwine, Squirt, Vernors on the shelves at select locations for about six months).
