View Full Version : Weird Beverage Experience

Tonight I was riding out in the country in WV, and almost ran out of gas. I ended up stopping at this crazy little BP. I walked in the little store, and it turns out I found a soda mecca.

I found......
Cherikee Red
Dad's Root Beer
original Minute Maid Orange Soda
old Cherry Coke logo
Pepsi Blue
Red Fusion
Lipton Brisk Lemonade
Tropical Sprite Remix
RC Draft Cola
Upper 10
Slice Fruit Punch

I couldn't believe my eyes at all the old drinks. Guess it's true they're still moonshining down in WV. Thankfully they left all the cool drinks for me....

Now...this didn't really happen, but I've seen some wacky things down there, so it may not be that far of a stretch from reality tongue.gif

I think you were about 5 minutes late there, TT.

Do they even still make Upper 10 anywhere?

If your 7-UP/DR Pepper bottler has RC you will probably not see Upper 10. I bought some a couple of years ago from All-American Bottling in Louisville. With 7-UP out of the Pepsi system down there, All-American picked it up. Once they started 7-Up they immediately killed Upper 10. You may be able to find it with a smaller Nehi bottler. RC Chicago has probably stopped Upper 10 since their buyout from American Bottling.

Who makes Cherokee Red and is it still available??

I bought Cherikee Red on Monday (April 4)in Pennsylvania. It says bottled under authority of Dr Pepper/7 Up by American Bottling. And yes Upper 10 is still availaible in some select areas as I had some earlier this year.

What exactly is Upper 10. I'm too young to remember. I think it was either some ginger ale flavor or a lemon-lime flavor. I do remember drinking it but I dont remember what it tasted like.

I was about ready to pack up and go to WV looking for that place, but then my hopes were crushed when I saw that it was made up. LOL!! I wish it would come true though. THat would be awesome!!!
