Nothing like the REAL Vernor's Ginger Ale. Unfortunately PEPSI then CADBURY and now SNAPPLE group ruined it. In fact, it is no longer called VERNORS Ginger Ale, but is now called Vernors Ginger SODA! Travesty!!!!

It was great getting it on TAP at the holidays at school and trips to the bottling plant as kids. James Vernors!

Soda POP!!! Or just Pop. Soda comes in a yellow box and is used for baking among other things! In Utah we take our Pop VERY seriously and most kinds can still be found here, somewhere, including RC. I just haven't drank that since my grandpa was alive when I was a kid.

Thanks for the TEEM link.
I miss Pepsi Light. Not diet, just Pepsi with lemon. I think this was in the '70's. We used to drink it at picnics and stuff.

Description:
"This was a very memorable drink that had a soldier imprinted on the bottle. It tasted very similar but much better than a Yoo-Hoo chocolate drink. There supposedly is a new revival of this drink available in some areas."http://www.ebay.com/bhp/chocolate-soldier-soda

I remember King Cola, but not fondly.
Spotted on American Pickers: signs for Hires Root Beer, Grapette, Mission Orange.
Of those, we drank Hires.
