I am also going to Iowa next weekend but luckly Davenport and not CR. In Cedar Rapids (Cedar Nasty) you just get your basics. CCE is Coke with the normal line of products usually shipped in from Chicago or Eagan, MN, or St. Louis. Pepsi is Pepsi Americas and Seven-UP/Dr Pepper is ABC. You may find some Welches flavors and Crush flavors. Also, I have seen Mello Yello flavors there before. When you drive through the Quad Cities stop and check the selection, especially Pepsi Products. A.D. Huesing http://www.huesing.com the local distributer co-ops from WIS-PAK and carrys Nu-Grape, DR. Slice, & sometimes many other Slice flavors. Glass returnable 12-oz Pepsi's were discontinued two years ago. You might find Fanta Citrus as I found Fanta Berry, Lemon, and a few others last summer.

This is off topic but in N. Illinois & Eastern Iowa check out a Maid Rite Restaurant. Best loosemeat sandwiches around.

You won't find a whole lot. If you want to find anything out of the ordinary stop by a Gasby's gas station. They tend to have the largest selection of brands.
