    Default Dad's & Bubble Up @ Big Lots

    I was in a Big Lots today. I always notice Dad's, but normally just pass it up because it is usually from Paul's Beverages. I will not drink flat soda!!! They had two different sizes today. The bigger bottles were Paul's, but they had 20 ounce bottles from Tri-State Canners, Evansville. I looked a little closer at the labels and they read: Produced Under Authority Of The Dad's Root Beer Company, LLC. Jasper, IN 47546. I had thought that Monarch Brands owned Dad's & Bubble Up? Monarch must have sold the brands. Anyway, the Tri-State product was fresh and carbonated.

    Yep, Hedinger bought Dad's, Bubble Up, Dr Wells and Suncrest from Monarch last year. I went to the race in Indy last week and stopped by Hedinger's office in Jasper. They have a nice retail shop there, they sell Dad's stuff (mugs, etc.) and all their sodas except Suncrest - single cans, 1liters, 12packs. It's all bottled in Evansville.

    I saw Dad's, Dr Wells and Bubble Up in the area but never did see Suncrest. Some of the cans and bottles I found on that trip are in the attachments. The Frostop 1-liters and the Barq's came from Cincinnati but everything else came from the Evansville area.

    The Bubble Up graphics have changed - the can on the right was produced in Paragould last year, when the brand was still owned by Monarch. The new design is on the left. The product made by Mellow Moon was excellent - I haven't tried the Evansville Bubble Up yet.

    PS Hedinger/Dad's is one of the sponsors for the #15 Indy car driven by Buddy Rice. This was their setup in the garage area at the speedway, during community day (5/21/08).
    Nice to see the old brand getting some exposure.

    I went there and found not only Dad's red pop, but also Gatorade AM: CRANBERRY-RASPBERRY.
    A flavor I've never seen before, and that isn't and never was on their webpage, I follow gatorade closely, and have never even heard of this flavor. Thank you Big Lots.

    I remember seeing his team's garage area but I don't recall seeing any Big Red branding. I didn't even know they were one of the sponsors.

    Red face

    You would have seen no sign of Big Red in Oriol Servia's garage, I meant Max Papis.
