Are there any sodas you regularly enjoy that are NOT made by the big manufacturers (i.e. Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, etc)?
Virgils. Maine Root. Izze. Polar, which is local to New England. There are a lot of them that are better than the big guys.
Blenheim ginger ale. Great taste and I t has enough ginger that you cannot inhale while drinking.
Stewart's orange cream soda and Doppelgänger which I believe is made by Maine Root.
Vess. They have the best orange soda and have weird flavor a too, like pins colada and strawberry.
