When I was a kid I would grab some loose change, go down to the neighborhood party store, and grab myself a pop.

Companies were coming out with different brand names by droves, most of them tasting the same, whether it was a "new" cola drink, fruity pop, lemon-lime, root beer...let's face it - most tasted the same.

Then there were the select few whose flavors were indeed distinct...apart from all the rest. Like Nehi, Hi-Klas, Towne Club, etc. Even Mountain Dew was a re-hashed Kickapoo Joy Juice. We all had our favorites.....AND we had our favorite places to buy our pops.

How many of the following did you try as a kid?
Which ones do you recall?
Which ones have you never heard of?
And...at what local stores did you get your bottle of pop?

Take a look at the list below, and hopefully some of the names will take you back to a more pleasant time from your youth.....
