Avery's also bottles their soda specifically for restaurants. The No Name Cafe in my town of Stafford Springs, CT has their own labeled soda line, and they also carry all the oddly-named varieties above. I still haven't found one as delicious as Avery's red cream soda found at Carminuccio's -- which they didn't have when I was last there! Chris

    We enjoyed some of the Atlanta-MadeRED ROCK GINGER ALE and some PEACH NEHI at the Mobile Roadfood Meeting. Both were Sugar based...No Corn Syrup on either Label.

    If you ever see the RED ROCK GINGER ALE buy it. It is one of the best soda's I have ever tasted.

      I bought Coke from a Mexican restaurant and other sodas from a Mexican grocery store we have here, thinking it was made with cane sugar. The last time my kids got their bottle of orange soda or 7-up, it contained HFCS! The Coke bottle didn't have the list of ingredients on it.

        Today I purchased an 8-pack each of the JONES SODA..Strawberry-Lime and Blueberry-Pomogrante. They claim that the JONES SODA is all cane sugar soda. The Strawberry-Lime is pretty mild but has a good strawberry flavor with a little Lime aftertaste. I will add some lime juice to it when I get into the second one.
        The Blueberry-Pomogrante is very bland. I knew the Blueberry would be, but thought the Pomogrante would give it a 'kick'. It doesn't. I think I have a real-doorprize here !

        I will continue my search for good soda! They also had "Sour Apple", but I don't think that would make my "A" List either!

          Reading the business section in the paper today:soda makers may go back to using sugar instead of corn syrup because of the rising cost of corn.All I have to say is:Thank God!!

                If you can get your hands on it, Manhattan Special uses sugar in their coffee soda, Mmmmm...... They also have some other great sodas: sarsparilla, black cherry, gasossa (lemon lime), cream. The best!

                They have a sugar free version of the coffee soda too, yuk.

                    As a previous poster mentioned, one great trick to to really stock up in the spring on sodas labelled "KOSHER FOR PASSOVER." As corn is a grain, it is not acceptable as part of a Kosher for Passover diet. Sugar cane is not a grain, so all Kosher for Passover sodas will be sweetened with Cane Sugar.

                    Please note that REGULAR kosher/kashrut law does not forbid corn syrup. It is only the Kosher for Passover items that will specifically avoid HFCS.

                            According to this page on their website, http://www.jonessoda.com/files/pure-cane-sugar.php, they have switched to cane sugar in their appropriately named "Pure Cane" line.

                              On a recent trip to Cincinnati I bought a bottle of Mexican CocaCola at Jungle Jim's.The label said it was made with sugar, but when I compared it side by side with regular Coke I didn't notice much difference in taste.I guess I just got used to inferior products.By the way,it was my first time at Jungle Jim's and I was very impressed.I would like to stop back when I have more time to browse.

                                I also think the 365 brand of cola at Whole Foods is made with sugar.



                                All of the 365 brand sodas sold by Whole Foods are made with pure cane sugar, rather than with HFCS. There is a variety of flavors, including cola, ginger ale (made with REAL ginger, unlike most of the so-called ginger ales on the market), cherry vanilla, cream, root beer, and a few others that I don't recall presently. I consider the 365 sodas, like the other house-brand products at Whole Foods, to be very good.

                                  All Mexican Coke is not created equal--the brand new "No Retornable" (as opposed to re-usable "Retornable") bottles from border towns like Tijuana and Mexicali (read the metal cap) available in Costco and elsewhere use at least a blend of HFCS and taste inferior vs the pure cane sugar Cokes bottled way down in Mexico in the old, thick bottles. Disregard the ingredient labels, they are generic translations. You will know the second it hits your tongue if it is "The Real Thing". Mexican Liquor Stores, Lunch Trucks, and a few mom & pop authentic Mexican Restaurants will carry the good stuff. Worth the effort to find it--be sure to stock up!

                                    Believe it or not, I was in our local Walgreen's here in Northern Michigan, and i found WG's own "Deerfield" Brand soda..named after the city in Illinois where the company is located...and its a small line of selection--root beer, orange cream soda, ginger ale (i think) and like a black cherry soda...all made with real sugar! aside from the Cosco's (which we dont have up here) I would imagine Walgreens is the largest national chain store carrying real sugar soda...in GLASS bottle no less! Now if they only had a cola version...it's a start for us in smaller parts of the USA!

                                        Was in the recently opened World Market the other night in Panama City - excellent selection of sodas
                                        (although didn't get to check out what they had for ginger ale) with real cane sugar including Boylan's,
                                        Bubble Up, Nehi Grape & Dad's, which I snagged a 4-pack of to take home!

                                            I found some Foxon Park Cream Soda in 1 liter bottles in a Big Y supermarket in Stratford, CT. The aroma and taste is exactly that of the cream soda that Hoffman Beverages made in Broooklyn in the 1950's. Boy did this bring me back in time.

                                              Has anybody tried that new pepsi with sugar?  I disagree with a previous post on adding more coke syrup.  I find it makes a huge difference.

                                                I found I got sick to my stomach drinking the natural cane sugar sodas...I could not take it.

                                                  Ditto this post..look for a mexican mercado (market) They should have Jarritos Soda AND Coke in a GLASS bottle ( from Mexico ) with CANE Sugar.


                                                  In Dallas, where we have a very large latino population, all the major markets sell Coke and other brands of soda that are made using cane sugar instead of corn syrup.

                                                    Recently,I was in Cascade Michigan and found Jones Pure Cane soda in a 12 pack 12 oz cans for under $6.00.  We're on our 3rd 12 pack.  I hope they keep it in stock.

                                                        We revceived email coupons from Pepsi this morning for the Pepsi Natural (sold in 4 packs) If we can find it in the store we will probably try some.

                                                          On a recent trip to Cincinnati I bought a bottle of Mexican CocaCola at Jungle Jim's.The label said it was made with sugar, but when I compared it side by side with regular Coke I didn't notice much difference in taste.I guess I just got used to inferior products.By the way,it was my first time at Jungle Jim's and I was very impressed.I would like to stop back when I have more time to browse.

                                                          Jungle Jim's can be browsed for a whole day and customers have been known to go in there and have 2 items to buy and come out with a whole basket load and minus major bucks!!
