Quench Your Taste with Hard-to-Find Old Time Soft Drinks
If you crave the sodas of yesteryear, don't despair. It's possible to find a vast array of retro soda pop today, and some companies like Dr. Soda even deliver it. Combine that with tasty treats that were once popular but are now so hard to find that most people believe they're no longer made, and for some it's near Heaven. If you've got a yen for Grape Nehi or Dad's Root Beer, take solace in the fact that they're only a phone call away. Here's a rundown of some of the most popular old time soft drinks that are still available today.
Kickapoo Joy Juice
Lil Abner fans will remember Kickapoo Joy Juice as the high-test beverage brewed by Lonesome Polecat and Hairless Joe. Few people in the U.S., however, remember that it is also a high-powered lemon-lime citrus soft drink introduced by The Monarch Beverage Company in 1965, at the height of the Al Capp comic strip's popularity. The company struck a licensing deal with Capp that included his control over marketing, and today, Kickapoo Joy Juice still carries a hillbilly cartoon sketch on the can. It's a popular carbonated beverage in Asia, but more difficult to find in the U.S. - but you can have it delivered along with dozens of other brands and flavors of soda.
Moxie Original Elixir
You'll still find Moxie in supermarkets around the country, but it's slipped into obscurity since its heyday in the 1940s and 1950s. The Moxie Company holds the distinction of being one of the very first carbonated soft drinks bottled for mass consumption. It was endorsed by Red Sox slugger Ted Williams and numbered President Calvin Coolidge among its many fans. While many people think of it as one of the better-known nostalgic sodas, in Maine it has a different title - the state's Official Soft Drink.
Nesbitt's Honey Lemonade
Back in the day, Nesbitt's was a big name in the soda drink industry. The company was founded in 1924 as the Nesbitt Fruit Products Company, and originally marketed soda fountain products. In 1938, the company started bottling Nesbitt's Orange Soda, which quickly became the most popular orange soda in the country. The early advertisements for Nesbitt's Orange Soda featured an unknown model and actress named Marilyn Monroe. While orange soda was Nesbitt's flagship, the company also made numerous other flavors of soda, including two that are still marketed today - Nesbitt's Honey Lemonade and Nesbitt's Peach Soda.
When you've got a yen for old time sodas, it's good to know that they're still available. Call an old time soda delivery company and ask them to bring you a cold one now.
