PapaJohn - just like original Dr. Pepper or "Dublin", there is no more "original" Vernors -- on TAP or otherwise. Thanks to SNAPPLE.

And, there is no more Vernors Ginger ALE. They have renamed it Vernors Ginger soda and made it too sweet and wimpy. BOO SNAPPLE!!!!

Oh how I long for the days of the real thing. I used to get it on tap at Vernors Elementary School...all the special holidays and graduations.

I think Kroger's carries the "SNAPPLE" version of Vernors. Good, but not VERNORS!

I can't believe how SNAPPLE has ruined Vernor's GINGER ALE. In fact, they now call it Ginger SODA. Blaspheme!

You have never had great ginger ale unless you have had the ORIGINAL Vernor's ON TAP~

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.
