I went to the store and addition to my

previous elusive search for a thick shake I added an even more elusive


for a bottle of Barq's Creme Soda.--Yvette

I may be straying off the reason for this list with the following, but


does bring up a pertinent regionalism with her creme soda (pseudo) comment.

Red pop is NOT creme soda! Ick.

When we first moved to Cincinnati, I had to make an effort to find real


soda, not that red, sweet, stuff like

Barq's. I was a big creme soda fan growing up, but we didn't have anything

like Vernor's (interesting) or Red pop (NOT).

I had exactly the opposite experience after moving to New England. I bought a

can of creme soda began to drink it, and yccch, what is this stuff? How can

anyone drink it? To me red pop in the form of Barq's Creme soda is the real

thing because that's my frame of reference. I'm surprised you couldn't find

Vernor's since that brand of soft drink was sold in southern Ohio. I remember

Vernor's ginger ale.--Yvette
