Anyone remember the Crass flavors produced by Central and other VA Coke bottlers years ago? Does anyone know what flavors were made besides Ginger Ale and Grape?

The Ginger Ale tasted strikingly like Northern Neck

Here ya go..

"Although Coca-Cola was the plant's primary product and namesake, it was not the only product produced there. Other flavors bottled included ginger ale, grape, cream soda, strawberry, orange, root beer and lemon lime. The crown on these beverages read "Crass," named after James E. Crass, who had originated the territory before the bottler took it over. "

Interesting site there on the story of the Romney Coca-Cola facility. Rode by it so many times, and knew it was a museum, but didn't know the entire story.

Too bad this little bottler didn't last, I can only imagine that 25 mile trip south to Romney for glass returnable Cokes tongue.gif

Oh well, I can get non-Pepsi Mountain Dew there from RC Winchester smile.gif
