I've recently been in and around the southern part of the Smokey Mountains, and while there, I found some drinks that are not available in the NC Piedmont area where I live.

In the Ingles in Robbinsville, NC, I found 4-packs of glass-bottled Red Rock Cola. They also had 6-pack 8-oz. glass bottles of Coca-Cola and Sprite. At Snider's Department Store in Robbinsville, they had several of the glass-bottled sodas from West Jefferson (RC Cola, 7-Up, Big Red, Cheerwine, Cool Mountain Creme Soda, etc.) as well as some other sodas in glass bottles (Frostie Concord Grape, Frostie Root Beer, etc.).

In Maryville, TN, I found Diet Rite Cherry Cola in a Wal-Mart. In a Kroger, I found Diet RC Cola, Orange Fanta Zero, and Sunkist Cherry Limeade. The Kroger also had the glass-bottled Red Rock Cola and fridgepacks of canned Tab.

In an IGA Supermarket in Benton, TN, I found fridgepacks of canned Diet Cherry 7-Up. The same store also a Faygo machine in front of it and inside they had the largest variety of Faygo flavors that I've ever seen.

In a Super Saver grocery store in Andrews, NC, I found fridgepacks of canned Red Rock Cola (I'd never seen Red Rock in cans before). The same store also had Red Rock Orange soda, Red Rock Grape soda, and Red Rock Peach soda. I'd never seen these varieties of Red Rock before.

Finally, in Murphy, NC, I found 16-oz. aluminum bottles of Mountain Dew. The bottles had several different designs.
