Where's that brick.......

I did, believe it or not, just forgot I guess between my own ramblings and the thread going to two pages. Sorry.

I honestly haven't seen Kick since about '85. Never knew about the other name. Mellow Yello did seem to replace it in my neck of the woods (NW Alabama).

Double Cola may still be around here, but not in the grocery stores I go to. Need to try the other smaller chains again. I've only seen Red Rock in Foodland stores. The Chattanooga connection probably explains Double Cola's strong presence her at one time, Huntsville provides most of the network TV affiliates for this part of the state and is close enough to Chattanooga for easy distribution and advertising.

Back when I was a kid I used to drink Like Cola.
Anyone remember this soda?



---------------------------------

And for those of us old enough to remember, what did you think when Coke switched to New Coke?
I remember actually liking it quite a bit.

Well I bought some today, and they are delish! If you want I can ship you some ... but you'll have to pony up cost and shipping. They're $1.10 each in the store for 20 oz. size.

Hmm... It's a tempting offer that I'll definitely have to think about. ^_^ Honestly I don't know why they stopped selling it around here.

All that switch to the new coke and coke II was only because coke was switching over to HFCS like all the other bottlers.

which is probably why the classic coke now still, as many know, doesn't taste exactly the same as it used to. I think they intentionally came out with less superior versiosn of coke so people would forget the original classic taste and when they reintroduced it with HFCS people probably wouldn't not notice the differnece since new coke was bad. I'm sticking with that theory, it would actually be a good marketing strategy to take a few blows in order to reboost sales and create a loyalty

I don't know where the stuff comes from, but around here you can buy this glass-bottle stuff from a company called Jones Cola and they make a variety of flavored sodas with ridiculous names like Foo Foo Berry.  In spite of the names, they're some of the most delicious bevs I've laid taste on.  They have a grape flavored one called MF Grape that is the best of the best.  They're an absolute treat and a little hard to come by.
Jones sodas are great, you can't walk into a store around here without seeing a display. My favorite is probably the cream soda.Just don't try any of the holiday flavors such as ham or turkery and gravy, unless you are truly brave. And while i like jones soda, i love their jones soda candy which is fizzy. unfortuneatly you can't get the candy around here so every birthday my aunt sends me a box stuffed full of various flavors.

I've pretty much have given up on drinking soda. The carbonation in it, chaws on my innards too much. Now it is pretty much just ice tea and bottled water.

BSK,

I hear you on the tea.  To be completely honest, a big glass of sweet tea is what you'll find me drinking whether at home or in a restaurant.  I make my own here at the house and my wife and I will normally go through a gallon about every two days.

Well here is a drink that for some reason is marketed mainly in KY and TX, it's made in TX and I rarely ever see it or here of it anywhere other than KY or TX. As far as I know.

A local radio personality in these parts of CA is originally from Texas and often talks about how much he likes Big Red. According to him, there are one or two stores in this area that sell it, but I have never seen or sampled it. What does it taste like?

Sort of a Strawberry Cream Soda with extra carbonation. They have a big bin at my local store full of them for 20 oz size for 50 cents, I bought $20 worth the other day. Must have been a special, normally they're about a $1 each.

We've had Big Red here in Iowa for years and as far as I know, Wal-Mart is the only place that sells it.
It's an ok soda but kinda bland.
Give me strawberry Crush anyday over Big Red.

Crush is good, no doubt.

I find these at Big Lots on occasion, and they have them at all the Mexican groceries around here, of which they're are plenty.

Doesn't Quentin Tarantino have a fetish for Big Red soda?

Ahhhhhh, okay. I saw the Big Red drink display in the convenience store scene of the Death Proof director's cut shortly after hearing something about his obsession with "Big Red", so my mind made a connection that wasn't there. Thanks Ska!  Thumbup
