Oh, how I miss it.

This stuff, along with Pez by the double-handful, is what let me survive my first retail job back in the day.

I miss Pepsi Twist.

Anyone else remember Aspen? It was available in the early 80s and had a crisp green apple flavor

I used to love that stuff


They still make it somewhere. Three months ago, the local dollar store was selling it.

As far as soda's go, I have yet to find anyone to have a photo of the old Canfield "Watermelon Soda" (sold in bottles similar to Snapple bottles now) with Mickey Rooney on the label.   Lost to minor history I guess...

Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is among recent drinks I miss. It can be recreated somewhat with cherry and vanilla syrup dispensers in some soda machines.

But from my childhood in the 80s, NY Seltzer, root beer flavor, went awesome with Italian grub. Though I remember getting it in little bottles in LA.

They still make this one. It's hard to find though.


I sometimes forget how lucky we are to have a Double-Cola bottler in town. Ski is available practically everywhere around here (and Cherry Ski is one of the finest carbonated beverages ever conceived).

When I was little, my neighbor's dad would sit outside and drink a 12 pack of that stuff a day while watching over us. I think he might of had a preoblem.

Immediately after Hurricane Katrina, I saw drinking water packaged in exactly that way, being given to refugees
/it was canned by Anheuser-Busch, if I recall
//cue "isn't that what they usually do anyway?" comments
 
2013-01-01 10:09:48 PM
HA, I just looked it up to see if I had imagined it.

I hadn't...they're doing it again for Sandy relief...but this time they're making sure to slap their logo on the cans, huge as hell, so everybody knows that this is waterBROUGHTTOYOUBYANHEUSERBUSCH!

I had a six-pack of that after hurricane Wilma.

This thread takes me down memory lane. Aspen and Apple Slice, particularly. Hadn't thought of those in 20 or more years. Not like I'd expect to reminisce on old sodas...

As for the Pepsi Holiday Spice, I never had it, but I would expect it is their version of julmust, which is horrible stuff. The Scandinavians love it, but they also hate root beer, I have a theory that if you love root beer, you'd hate julmust.

This is as good of a thread as any. About 15 years ago I was in the UK and came across a pretty good soda. Had 3 flavors I remember- orange, lemon, and apple and the can had a black background. Anyone over in that neck of the woods know what I'm talking about? Heading back over for a business trip next month and I'm trying to make a list of all the stuff I experienced when I was a kid.
 
2013-01-01 11:24:57 PM
...but since people who can't stand coffee likely aren't too big on soda either...

Every time I wake up and pop the top on a Coke, I imagine myself leading the life a punk would envy. Then I make my commute and put my nose to the grindstone. I got Jackie Onassis in my pants.

Best cream soda of all time, bar none. My grandmother used to get this by the case for when I would come over, which was usually three times a week.


A Treat is local to us, we used to have them deliver soda and seltzer to our home. When I see the old school glass bottles I try to aquire them for my brew lab. I think I have over 400 shortys, greens,and quarts from the 50s and 60s.

Toshiro Mifune's Letter Opener: SilentStrider: Paging a certain Ecto Cooler fan to the thread...

*tips hat*

Not subby here, but I don't even mind Ecto Cooler being lumped in with the soda-pops.

I'm just glad that the Ecto Cooler faithful are still represented.


GreenAdder: There are recipes floating around for making your own artificial Ecto Cooler. I've yet to try one, mainly because I don't know if tangerine juice is a readily available commodity around me.

Yeah, a lot of those float around here from time to time.

Sooner or later, I'm gonna have to crack down and try 'em.



I've tried it on two different recipes, both were pretty close.

Jolt Cola, 48*500ml cans (2 layers of 24), 65 euro's.

The German subsidiary (which uses the name VOLT) is still going and still shipping.

I remember marathon video gaming sessions while drinking a Mountain dew like drink that I thought was named Surge. It had bits of what I thought was guarana fruit floating in it and was hugely caffeinated. Am I thinking of the right name for it? It was an awesome drink.
 
2013-01-02 12:24:39 AM
wow.. I was gonna post some stuff but every damn soda I miss has already been posted here

7-up Gold
Josta
Crystal Pepsi
Royal Crown Draft
Surge

well, Vault hasn't been posted I guess, and it's only very recently deceased

Wasn't Surge. Surge was the predecessor to Vault and had no floaty bits.. at least, it's not -supposed- to.

It ain't a Carolina thing anymore... Dr. Pepper has been rolling it out further into Virginia, and other states, over the last year or so.

Same goes for the sweet, sweet nectar

I can't find a picture of it, but they used to make a Mandarin Orange variety of Slice (not just "orange"). God, that stuff was pure ambrosia.


I remember that. It was gorgeous...

Loved this stuff as a kid. Still do. I can still drive across the border to Louisiana and get it on occasion. Most states don't sell it anymore, something about the red dye being dangerous.

/non carbonated (not soda)

I also had those after Katrina. I saved one can as a memento but it somehow got misplaced during a move.

/would have saved one of the MREs, but they were actually good. Seriously, I enjoyed the hell out of those things for some reason. Probably the 15,983 calories they pack into each one, giving me energy for my attempts to punch Ray Nagin in the mouth.
