I was always partial to the Shasta Orange. I did not care for their cola, but the Root Beer was pretty good. I never cared much for any grape soda. Nehi had a red soda that was strawberry flavored, not a creme soda like Big Red.

My great grandmother always had Bireleys Orange in the refrigerator when I visited her. Bireleys had grape and other flavors, but once they came out with chocolate soda. I asked my great grandmother to get me some of it. It wasn't very good, and we went back to the orange after finishing off that six pack!

I have a bottle that once contained "Chocolate Soldier". I heard it was big in the south, but i don't remember ever seeing it for sale around here. Another bottle I have, but never drank is Spizz. The bottle has a date of 1940 on it, and it is green like a 7up bottle. Speaking of 7up, anyone remember RC's answer to 7up? It was called Upper 10. I drank a few Upper 10s in my day, but I do not have a bottle.

The Chocolate Soldier made me think of a drink made with BOSCO (remember Bosco?) It was called a "Chiller Diller".-- ( I think ) It was Bosco, Milk, 7 up and Ice. I liked them but I liked Bosco anyway--especially when they had a free Yo Yo glued to the cap.

I reciently came across a Mason jar full of 1950' era Jax beer bottle caps with Rebus puzzles on the inside at a local flea market. My Dad loved them and we always worked them out together. (Yes I bought them; three bucks)

I remember those rebus Jax beer caps! Jax was my dad's favorite brew. I also remember Channel 4 news at 6:00 was sponsored by Jax, and they had some very funny cartoon commercials. Jim Dawson was the weatherman, and he always drew a cartoon to finish his weathercast, too.

Bosco was great. I remember they had a commercial that had the characters dancing the Bosco-nova! Bosco was George Costanza's ATM password.

RC Cola and Nehi had a contest with their bottlecaps back in 1964. A picture of one of the presidents was under the cork seal. If you got ALL the presidents Washington thru Johnson, you got a free case of 24 Nehi or RC. LBJ was the hardest to get. I was able to win three cases because I would go to RC machines with a magnet on a string, and fish out bottle caps.

I remember Mo-La Coola! I never drank any, but I remember the little jingle on the commercials.

Moo-la Coola, Moo-la Coola, the soft drink that comes from a cow, is at your grocery sore now!

Ha! I remember having dinner at my BFF house, and she made me laugh so hard, I accidentally spit a mouthful of the chocolate moo-la coola on her Dad & his white starched shirt.

There was a grocery store that had a promotion where you could get a little plastic statue of a president. They had a different one every week and a cardboard display to put them on.
