My favorite brand of soda is pepsi. Tonight I tried rc cola for the first time and liked it. My favorite brand of rootbeer is ICB. I bought a 20 ounce bottle of rc cola for 50 cents at walmart in Athens, Ohio. How many people here like rc cola?

I buy Diet RC Cola for one reason only. It's made with Splenda. Coca-Cola also makes a diet version made with Splenda but it's hard to find for some strange marketing reason.

Hello All,
Kevanwagner, you brought memories up when you ask about Royal Crown cola.
I am 52 yrs. old and do not consider myself ancient, but have a memory
that seems ancient.
When I was a kid, soda, soft drinks, or what we called in my area, pop,
could be bought for 5 cents a bottle. It went up to 10 cents when I was
about 10-12 yrs. old.
RC had a promotion where under their bottle cap your could discover if
you had won a 10, 25, or 50 cent reward. It had a cork layer you had to
dig through to discover if you had won anything.
Not being from a wealthy family, I would buy RC's so I could get some extra
money if I was lucky enough to buy a candy bar or bag of peanuts.
It's been years since I've had an RC. I may search one out due to your thread.
I'm a Dr. Pepper man now.
As far as root beer, I always like Hines.
I also enjoyed an orange soda, Tru-Aid.
Thanks for the thread.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

Faygo and Pepsi (especially Vernors).




(FACT: Did you Know Michigan Is The Only State In The U.S. Where Coke Doesn't outsell Pepsi?)

I guess we know good pop when we taste it (Pepsi, Faygo, Vernors).

Coke is yuck. It's always Hot and Flat.

Coke Zero is only good if it is really, really cold! I too drink it, not by choice, but it is better than some of the alternatives out there. Usually I drink water or iced tea but every once in a while you need a little carbonation and so....
Root Beer fave is Barq's and I like a good cream soda too!

Diet Coke (regular now tastes funny to me). If it is from a self serve fountain I add a little Dr. Pepper.

Any Lycoming style (white) birch beer; found a 2L of Frozen Run brand at Wegman's market in Williamsport PA in the spring. If I hadn't been a passenger in someone else's car I would have filled the trunk to bring it back south.

I was raised on RC - we too called it pop in Ohio where I was - but switched to Coke when I moved south because they had screw on lids on their 16 oz. bottles and it helped keep the fizz in.

Lately I've become reacquainted with Squirt - a citrus/grapefruity flavor and it's my current favorite ... unless I need the caffeine jolt of Code Red Mountain Dew.

I haven't seen RC Cola in years but it was the first brand I ever saw that had a caffeine-free version. I love orange soda of any kind and also cream soda, which is somewhat hard to find.

I would almost kill for Nehi Peach Soda, but I just havent brought myself to order it off the internet yet. A case would cost about $30 dollars and thats just to much. My sister lives in South Carolina and hasent found any for me yet. Ironicaly, I found some in lower West Virginia at a gas station on my way back from Myrtle Beach this year, but they only had one left (so he said).

RC cola is everywhere up here in northern West Virginia. Its always cheaper than Coke and Pepsi, but I find it a bit harsh.

I usually drink Diet Rite cola (the RC cola diet version) because it has 0 caffine, 0 calories, and 0 carbs. It's hard to find in the 2 ltr. size sometimes here so I buy it in the 6 bottle pack. Used to be 1.98 for a bottle six pack and the price just recently shot up to 3.98, that's just about 100% increase. Sometimes we'll drink what we call the "bad stuff", Mt. Dew, which would be my preference if calories and caffine were not a problem.

I recently bought a bottle of Knudsen's Grape Spritzer and am so hooked I keep the fridge loaded with it at all times.

It's reminiscent of Grape Crush or Grapette, only much better.

I believe I have 12 bottles chilling right now. And they're mine, all mine. ~(;-D)

TaB first. If the Kroger or Eagle doesn't have it, then it's Diet Coke. The only time I will voluntarily consume pepsi is if someone offers it (just to be polite), or if it's the offering where I'm eating. If the latter is the case, then it's Dr Pepper. pepsi will not have a place in my fridge.

Actually, after Pepsi and Faygo (namely Vernors), my choice would be the Off-Brand Pops from Save-A-Lot or Aldi (namely Bubba Cola from Save-A-Lot). I notice that the Off-Brand pops are always fresh and fizzy.

My current favorite is Dr Pepper, both cold and hot. Hot Dr Pepper was promoted heavily in the 60's and was quite a fad for a while. I wonder if I am the only one that still likes it hot?

Gingerale, not diet.
Seltzer, to make an egg cream.

NY egg cream:
Take a tall glass
fill 1/4 with Ubet chocolate syrup
pour milk 1/4 up way more.
Fill rest of glass with seltzer
Stir till frothy white foam on top.
Enjoy.

I prefer 'Jones'. They use real cane sugar, guess it is considered the healthy soda pop. They have unique combinations of flavors. At Thanksgiving, Jones came out with a - Turkey, gravy, mashed potato, soda pop! I did not have the courage to taste it. If you send them a picture and they like it, they put your picture on the label.

TFShaw; Dearfolk,
Irony of ironies... Moxie is manufactured by Monarch Beverage, which is headquartered in near-to-me Doraville, Georgia. Try as I might, though, I cannot find it anywhere in these Georgian parts. My first taste of it was on my sole trip to Connecticut: I lucked upon it in a large supermarket in Waterbury (they also carried Eclipse Coffee Syrup!), and it was LOVE at first swig.
My supposition is that it's just expensive enough to make that Monarch purposely keeps its market limited to Maine and wherever it will sell in that proximity. There is, for example, a beer and soda distributor in Pennsylvania that keeps it in stock at all times. If I recollect right, they're somewhere up by The Poconos.
Hmmm... I just read that Moxie has been sold by Monarch to Cornucopia Beverages, which is a subsidiary of Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Northern New England. Apparently they are interested in expanding the territory of the drink.
Sodamania in Tampa, Florida keeps Moxie in stock, as do several other mega-soda dealers around the country... Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other cities (WHY not Atlanta?).
Sodamania in Lutz, Florida (north of Tampa: 14603 Livingston Avenue 33549) reports that Moxie is their # 1 seller of all the 400-plus brands they stock. This is located inside Subs-N-Such Sandwich Shop. When I can make it to Florida, I'll have to trundle out there and glom some up.
Some folks would hypothesize that I like Moxie because it's weird, and that factor does indeed enter my mind... but that's definitely not a deciding one. Yes, Moxie gets my vote... Diet Moxie, specifically.
DeMoxiefied, Ort. Carlton in Amazing Athens, Georgia.
P. S. I have a few cans left in thr 12-pack sitting on the kitchen table... it was brought down from Maine for me.

I have heard about Moxie but have never encountered it. I always thought it was a NYC favorite. Maine never crossed my mind. I still think it is big in NYC though.

Funny it has not made it to the capital region of NYS though as there are so many NYC folk here in the legislature with their staff and entourage. Then again, maybe they don't drink soft drinks which would explain a lot about their behavior.

back in days of yore I used to like Brookdale Soda in NJ; it came in cases of great big tasy bottles and if I recall righht the places that sold it sold nothing else...long gone of course.
last time I was east Stewarts root beer from the real places was still v good- the bottles you can buy at places even here are not close.
my facvorite these days are Hansens Natural sodas- very flavorful , and the diet stuff does not suffer a bi...we always have some hansens here

I'm a fan of RC. Along with Sun Drop, that's the first soft drink I remember drinking at my great-grandfather's house. He always kept the two in his pantry.

Not sure what my favorite soda really is, but if I had to choose one, I'd probably go with Cheerwine or Iron Beer.

I like RC but Barqs is my favorite.  Especially that bottled on the Mississippi Gulf coast.  I was a QC tech for a Coke plant for a while and got tired of tasting all of their products after a year or so(I was there for 2 years).  Does anyone remember Kickapoo Joy Juice from Dogpatch USA in Arkansas.

I never buy and rarely drink carbonated sugar or diet beverages. But if it is the only choice and there is a variety of them in a tub of ice I would pick out the root beer.

I'm not a real coke or pepsi lover.  Also realised recently that I don't like A&W root beer, it has a weird sorta taste like bad coffee, maybe it's just me though.

I have a few favourites:
