Are there any sodas you regularly enjoy that are NOT made by the big manufacturers (i.e. Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, etc)?
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.
Blenheim ginger ale. Great taste and I t has enough ginger that you cannot inhale while drinking.
Virgils. Maine Root. Izze. Polar, which is local to New England. There are a lot of them that are better than the big guys.
