I'm going to Birmingham, AL for the holidays. Where are the best places to go for good soda? I know Buffalo Rock is the main bottler there. They stopped giving tours a few years ago.

Where should I be looking?

Buffalo Rock has Dr. Wham (but not in Birmingham) and Sunkist Cherry Limeade.

Don't forget to pick up some Grapico! An old time Southern favorite!

I went to Destin, FL and was suprised to find out that they had Dr. Wham/Diet Dr. Wham, Cherry Limeade Sunkist and Buffalo Rock Ginger Ale. I didn't realize Buffalo Rock's distribution went down that far.

They really don't have Dr. Wham in Birmingham?

I tried a can of DrWham a while back.
It's a darn good soda pop. I was surprise at how close in taste it was to DP. Sadly DrWham is not available by my neck of the woods. :(

In markets where Buffalo Rock carries Dr Pepper, there is no Dr Wham.

In Florida, they have distribution centers in Pensacola and Panama City.

"Dr. Wham can be found at stores in the following markets: Columbus, GA; Ft Walton & Pensacola, FL and Anniston, Childersburg, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery, Sylacauga, Talladega and Tuscumbia, AL."

Thanks for the heads up on Dr Wham. I was planning on buying a 12 pack when I went to Bham, but I'll have to plan on getting some when I go back to Destin.
