    Nothing. They are still around. A&W, Barqs and Mug are all part of the big 3 soda companies so they get the shelf space in the major stores.

    Wallyworld carries IBC, not Hires.

    Hires is the rarest of the brands he mentioned in his area - I'm honestly not sure who produces them or where he could get them. But he could possibly find it at Jungle Jim's? I'm guessing on that...

    Hires can be found at Weis supermarkets around here. I would like to find MUG cream soda though. Any ideas there fusion?

    I've seen Mug Cream sold pretty much anywhere that's Wis-Pak territory, which is a healthy chunk of the upper midwest. But that doesn't exactly help you in Maryland.

    And as for Hires, I literally know of one store in my whole metro area that carries it, at 5.25 a fridgepack. They also have orange and grape crush in fridgepacks for the same price. Made by ABC...

    Pepsi Harco carries Mug Cream in 2L in Harford/Cecil counties. I also believe that you can find it here in Delaware.

    Only because I so enjoyed Hires Root beer glass as a young kid,boy every Saturday at the YMCA I savored a bottle....even at $5.25 a fridge pack I would get one. [img]smile.gif[/img] (Sorry for the run on sentence.)

    I used to find Mug cream in 2L at Redner's markets in PA, but that's been a couple of years ago.

    Pepsi Americas in the Memphis area also carries Mug cream.
