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.

Pepsi One. Seems to be dying a quick death. Unavailable suddenly at ALL of the big places, including Wally World and Meijer, and only available in smaller stores if they have some left. Pepsi says they "have no plans to discontinue it". Load of hooey. They'll let it run out and then tell us they've discontinued it!

It's the only Pepsi with Splenda instead of Aspartame or sugar/high fructose corn syrup, so the ONLY alternative I had in the Pepsi realm.

Just a note, I have started an update of my similar thread Other Sodas in the Diet/eating category since it got locked despite recent updates.
If you have a favorite old soda, feel free to reminisce :)
I just got a great deal on Diet Vernors ginger ale. In plastic 2 liters but still so good.
