Mayor Al, can relate to your story about the rare Cheerwine sightings: First, when we took our car in to get the oil changed,
the vending machine (at the time, it's now been replaced with usual fare) had 20-oz bottles of Dad's, Dad's Red Creme Soda &
Ski, but (AFAIK) they weren't in any of the local stores.
Second, in going to a Books-A-Million, their cafe also had the 20-oz. Dad's products, but on a later visit to Dothan, the
1-liter bottles of regular Dad's turned up in the Southside K-Mart.
(of course now the World Market in Panama City has the Dad's with real sugar in glass bottles at a 4-pack for $3.99)
