I can’t say that I’m a big fan of soft drinks but I do enjoy a cold soda on occasion.
When flying, my drink of choice is ginger ale and/ or water. Otherwise, there isn’t really a time that I consistently drink soda.
On our recent trip to Atlanta, we visited the World of Coca-Cola. I have to say that I was a bit disappointed during the visit. I expected to learn some details about the history of Coke but left feeling like the place was one massive marketing pitch. (Check back for a future post about our visit.)
One thing that I did like about the World of Coca-Cola was the area where we got to sample products from around the world. While we found most of them to be pretty gross, it was still pretty cool to have them all available for a taste in one relatively small area.
Thrillist came up with an article featuring a map and list of Best Soft Drinks in Every State In America. I found the article interesting and was curious to find out where some of the soda brands were created and were most popular. Here are a few soft drinks/ brands from the list that I do enjoy.
- Foxon Park– Connecticut: I’ve had it in some of New Haven’s famous pizzerias. FP comes in a variety of flavors. I visited their production area once to buy a few bottles in the past.
- Boylan’s– New Jersey: I’ve only tried it a handful of times but recall enjoying their orange and black cherry varieties.
- Dr. Brown’s– New York: Probably my favorite soda brand. I can’t visit a real Jewish deli without having a cream or black cherry Dr. Brown’s.
- Dr. Pepper– Texas: It’s hard to place the taste of just what exactly Dr. Pepper is but as long as it is cold, it is pretty awesome.
Do you have a favorite soft drink brand which is more regional or not so widely available? If so, please let us know what they are.
