Fizzy Lifting Drinks

By Brian . Created on Aug 21, 2021
Soda, pop, soft drinks. Call them what you will, we've had various polls covering the more mainstream brands. However there are others that are regional and may not be known to all. Below are just six I have tried, take your pick of a favorite, or as always, add your own in replies, I am sure there are many.

I’m familiar and have tried Vernor’s, Squirt, and Shasta. Vernor’s is a stronger Ginger Ale, it’s pretty good. Not really into sodas though, on a rare occasion I’ll have Canadian Dry/Sprite/7Up :)

I can find Vernor's here some places, and decided to get some the other day which is what prompted the poll. You're right it a bolder flavor ginger ale. When I lived in Michigan, ice cream places made floats with it called Boston Coolers. Never did get the reason for the name, but they were good.

Lately, I haven’t seen Vernor’s in the markets, only in some speciality stores. Squirt and Shasta are more popular. Hhmm Floats sounds good, haven’t had it in a while. Nice poll Brian :)

I make my own with my Sodastream

Brian, those Soda Stream machines were all the "rage" a few years ago, and I looked in to getting one for "lefty". If I'm not mistaken, someone can pretty much add carbonation to just about any type of drink, even iced tea, or juices. I "think" they also have almost every variety of soda flavors available as well. Colas, Root Beer, Seven-Up, Orange/Grape/Strawberry, etc. It would just be another "novelty" appliance ...

My favorite "squirt "
Brian said on Aug 23, 2021
I like that as well, though not everyone does due to the tart grapefruit flavor. I find it rather refreshing like lemonade, the tartness quenches the thirst. Can't find it in my current area, though.

Brian, remember we were talking about Dad's/A&W Root Beer several weeks back on another poll. Try Checking at a Big Lots, or Dollar General. Sometimes they carry items that aren't in a typical grocery store (Publix). I guess because they cater to a different clientele they (B/L & D/G) they carry more of the offbeat/unusual brands. A quick search on either retailer's website will tell you IF they carry the Squirt bra...
