That's a nice selection, and the glass bottles are appreciated. I remember Nehi orange. Is my favorite, the DP, the kind that's made with real sugar? A&W is good stuff. I hear they've changed 7-Up's formula to be more like Sprite, which is a sucky move if true.

Most of the rest of that stuff is unknown to my West Coast upbringing.

Speaking of West Coast, that cooler wouldn't fly out here without a nice selection of Jarritos.

The 7 UP is made with real sugar. As is Dr. P
I have a steady customer fro CHICAGO, who flies into Baltimore twice a year, to visit his sister in Mt.Airy, he eats the takes every Moxie I have, with him.

I love Moxie... Think of a Root Beer with sort of a Listerine breath-Wash flavor. It is definitely an acquired taste... I got used to it when living in MASS.  and found it at Stater Brothers many times after coming home.  The diet version sucks, but the 'original' will grow on you if you will try it a couple of times.

  Wow!! I haven't seen 7-UP in glass bottles forever. Been a while since I've seen R.C. Cola anywhere. I love all of the NEHI flavors. What is this Moxi, of which you speak? Heard of it but never seen it out west. Same with Cheerwine.   B.T.W. I didn't see Vernor's Ginger Ale in the mix.

  As I said to my Fontucky Friend, Moxie is one of the really old soft-drink names  in New England. It is 'sorta' a root beer, but has a unique, almost medicinal taste. Lots of folks hate it !!!

Cheerwine is a cherry soda out of North Carolina. Quite sweet. We see it here in Louisville in many stores.  I do enjoy my Vernor's the Michigan based Ginger Ale company now owned by the Dr.Pepper Sweppes congomerate.

I tried Moxie on my recent trip to New England. My major impression of it was that all the taste sensation was at the back of my mouth; even when I brought the soda to the tip of my tongue, the flavor wasn't nearly as strong there as at the back of my tongue.

Dave,

As usual with 'Chubby' there is a spark of truth to his comment. The phrase that implies a person who has the courage to face up to adverse conditions, has "MOXIE", did indeed come from the soft-drink name. However the comment about the'ability to down a whole bottle of it' is fiction.

MOXIE is one beverage that really seems to do better in a glass container than the newer plastic bottles. I did not care for the two-liter bottles as they seemed to flat very quickly.  And Yes, I tend to go thru a six-pack of cans at the same rate as I do most other soft-drinks.  "A 6-pack a day, keeps the Doctor in business" !!

Another Moxie fan here (and living in NH, while not popular, the stuff is ubiquitous.  Pretty much every grocery store and gas station has it...).  It does taste like medicine.  Tasty, tasty, medicine!

I like how the original poster has Boylan's, I drink that as well (Black Cherry, mostly)

Things that I don't see that I love, include Blenheim Ginger Ale (which I have to lug back from my trips to the SE), Vernors, and Bubble Up.  Other members of my family love Faygo, but I never got the love.

My partner's sister lives by Temecula, CA, and I love going there, since they have this place



With quite the impressive assortment:

I have found that I do like the Cherry Dr Pepper a lot. It comes and goes on our local market shelves.

I used to love Mission Orange Soda in SoCal but the formula has changed over the years and it's not what I remember.

Mountain Dew is my Mixer of choice for use with Bourbon. I get the Kroger house brand version of the Dew.

I buy Vernor's when it is 3 12pks for $10 or $11. Normal market price here is $5.98 a 12pk, so the sale is a good one. I keep 4 or 5 12pks in inventory here, as I love the stuff. 2 Liters are 99 cents this week, but they go flat in a few hours, so I don't buy them.

The V-8 is my stash, if someone wants to buy a can, great, otherwise I drink it, you can get a case at Costco for next to nothing.

I am enjoying the Sprecher's Cherry Colas I got from my Wisconsin Family during their visit over the July 4th holiday. I limit myself to one a day...and one Red Ravin' also. We hope to stock up on Cherry Cola this Fall on our annual Wisconsin trip.
 
    If you haven't tried the stuff, do so. It is the very best Cherry Cola (no caffeine) I have ever tasted. Made with Door Cty Cherries and native honey sweetener. Great flavor.
The Ravin' Red is a Cherry-Cranberry soda with a leaning towards the Cranberry tartness with a Cherry aftertaste. Again , it uses honey for the sweetener.
Pretty expensive for the mail-order and shipping but worth a few bucks to taste the best.  Best price we've found is at Dollar General stores up there at 2 four-packs for $5.
 
I have tried their Root Beer, Ginger Ale, Orange Creme, and Puma Cola, and find them good, but not outstanding like the two mentioned above. The Puma Cola has a strong Vanila flavor and is made with Ginseng root extract. Nice to try it, but I won't buy another 4 pk.

We don't have Krogers here, just Publix stores on about every street corner nestled in between CVS and Walgreens..    Hear tell it Firehouse Subs across from campus has a machine that has Nehi peach in it along with quite a few other flavors that you can mix together should you be so inclined.

I was born in 1947 & we did not have pop on a regular basis.  One of the times I would get pop was on picnics in the summer.  A big galvinized wash pan was filled with pop & covered with ice.  My favorite was always a Neihi orange, my sister, a Neihi grape.  Oh, those were the days.
