    I will be stopping by Retro Soda in Chicago sometime soon (visiting Milwaukee, will be living there soon, so it will become my real soda oasis!) in order to get some cane sweetened soda in glass. I have tried a number of them already, being close to Jungle Jim's, however some of these I have not seen/had.

    I am curious what everyone's favorites are, and I plan on trying WJ DrP and RC. I have had Dublin, and Cheerwine, loved both of them. Going to see which Dr Pepper wins out and stock up on some of them, though not too much cuz Cane Summer is near! [img]smile.gif[/img]

    How about....

    Frostie Cherry Limeade
    Nu-Grape / Nehi Grape / Welch's
    Bubble Up
    Mt. Dew (WJ)
    7Up (WJ)
    Ski
    Sundrop / Orange Crush / Sunkist / Nehi Orange
    Nehi Peach
    A&W (WJ)

    Any others worthy of mention? [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Well, of course! Those don't require such a crazy trip though. The local Mexican grocery has quite a few things in stock. Needless to say, I'll be having some Jarritos and other Mexican sodas in glass tomorrow for my Cinco de Mayo party! Yum... fresh fried tortilla chips, homemade salsas, and more!

    If you're going to buy Jarritos, I recommend you the tangerine, tamarindo and pineapple flavors... they're great!

    The Quench is pretty good (kind of like Squirt).
    Retro Soda just sells US soda. You might also try some of the Chicago sodas.
    Also remember that there are some good bottlers just West of Green Bay!

    Do not Buy Black Bear out of Milwaukee,WI.
    Very poor quality and not worth the price even at 40 cents for a 20oz.

    I found this list of Wisconsin Root Beer bottlers from another message board.
    Enjoy

    Point Brewery sweetens their products with honey and also makes great Vanilla Cream and Black Cherry Cream. My dad likes their root beer. He says that it tastes like the stuff he used to drink as a kid.

    Shawano Club Root Beer? I thought that they just had generic root beer. Come on and spill the beans on this!
