We spend a lot of time talking about regional beers, but what about soda / pop / soda pop?

What are your favorite sodas?

Some of mine:

Sparkling Loganberry Soda (had in upstate NY)

MASH - really good natural tasting sodas - small line put out by Boylans. My favorite is the Lemon Peel/Ginger Root. (Not sure where this is made.)

Big Red out of Texas (haven't has this in years).

There was a Canada Dry Ginger Ale sold near Nashua NH that was 'Chelmsford style'... it seemed to be a stronger than normal, yet not of their regular ginger ale. Probably had some extra ginger and some other flavor (label said 'natural flavors' >shrugg<)...

Its an acquired taste, sweet with a bitter finish. Its great with a splash of milk too.

Detroit/Michigan used to have Towne Club which was phenomenal. Faygo is still great - Red Pop owns. And Vernors is a classic. I took it for granted until I moved out of state for a few years and it was hard to come by.

Gotta go with Vernors, although Faygo is not bad. Every kid got Faygo pop growing up.
