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
