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
