Other favorite soda waters I enjoyed as a kid were Bireleys Orange, and Frostie Root Beer. It was also always "high time for Hires Root Beer".

In the early 60s Dr Pepper brought out a drink called Pommac. It tasted like champagne. I remember going to the grand opening of the Handy Andy at West Avenue and Basse Road. I put a dime in the Dr Pepper machine, selected Pommac, took one sip and put the bottle in the empty bottle rack. I thought it was awful.

Pomac looked like beer if i recall correctly. Kids thought it was cool. Not very good though. Squirt was great at first..I think they've changed the formula. I went from Coke to Big Red early on. Mr Cola was very near taste of Coca Cola and 16oz for same price as others was great deal. We'd hit Model Market for the Shasta's though. Heading for the coast or deer lease you needed plenty drinks and cheap. Nehi's were great and RC's. My uncle had an RC machine in his house ..reach in chest type. Always icy!! Most things were a nickel in the 50's. Potato chips, peanuts, sodas most candies...those were the days.

The best Shasta flavor was the cherry cola. Dad would only buy them when they came on special at Handy Andy 20 for a dollar. You had to use a church key to open the metal cans. Anyone know where to buy Shasta cherry cola?

Pommac is still being bottled in Denmark! Pommac - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I drank a lot of Shasta, too. I remember the little iceberg on the label, and under it said "It Hasta Be Shasta"

They had a Shasta commercial in the movie "Signs"! Couldn't find it and it was one I remembered best.

You can put your trust in Butter Krust Bread!

Does anyone remember the Dr Pepper cartoon St Bernard that would appear at the end of every Dr Pepper commercial and say: "Frosty, man frosty!". No one I knew seemed to remember that, but I went to the Dr Pepper museum in Waco and saw a lot of old ads with the dog and slogan on it. I even bought a T shirt with the dog and slogan!

I have an old Dr Pepper bottle that says Dr Pepper Good For Life!

Remember "Now it's Pepsi, for those who think young!"?

Things go better with Coke!

A drink I would like to forget is Fizzies. They were tablets that you put in a glass of water, and like Alka Seltzer, they would fizz, and supposedly make a tasty drink. They came in a lot of "flavors", but they tasted more like Alka Seltzer.
