I know Cheer-wined had mentioned that WJ had a new look to their bottles and that they now specified "sugar" rather than "and/or HFCS." A case finally showed up on my doorstep on Thursday after about a 7-week wait. I was expecting a rather plain looking bottle, and it is, but it still looks pretty good. Tastes good too ;)

I guess having only one color on the ACL is a decent trade for real sugar....

Man, I haven't had RC since '99, I'd love to have it again. Great stuff, IMO. Cherry RC was AMAZING. Leagues better than Cherry Coke and Cherry Pepsi, IMO.

Yeah, Cherry RC is pretty darn good, I'm drinking one right now, actually!
(but unfortunately, not a W. Jefferson sucrose sweented version)

The multi colored bottles look better. But still, You don't drink the bottle, just what's in it.

Yes, the West Jefferson Dr Pepper bottles previously had some red, in addition to the white, but now they're all white. But you see how dark the contents are? The WJ DP is the same way. I get excited when I see that shade, because I know that the concentration hasn't been watered down (as it is at all too many fountain dispensers).

Man would I like to get my mitts on those. RC is really a superior product- add in sugar- and you have the best cola around. I hope this sugar trend continues atleast with the major brands.

That RC logo is plenty lame no matter how many colors it is. RC needs a redesign.

Wow, I just saw some two liter RC's at a local c-store, two for $3. I might pick some up next week.
