    This site looks to be an alternate site for Galco's Old World Market in Highland Park.:eusa_clap

    They also have some of the old time candies, gum and breath mints, such as Sen-Sen. Chowards, Blackjack gum and Beemans. plus an interesting selection of beer.

    Here in Texas, we don't have to go to special soda stores to get the original formula, I can just walk a couple of blocks:beer: to a regular food store to get my supply.:whistling

    Of course we do export to the corn syrup blighted frontiers.;) (Insert bragging image of Gary Cooper from the the movie "It's a Big Country" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043680/ yes I know he was really from Montana.;) )

    I never did care for coca-cola....my favorite has always been root beer, from the bottle of course ;)

    You found my weakness!

    Ahh Coca-Cola!! Even though they screwed up switching from glass, and later to corn syrup, I still crave the stuff and now even hold stock in the company. Does that make me a "coke addict?" Thanks for the tips on where/when to locate cane sugar sweetened Coke...I'll definitely be keeping an eye out. A few years ago living in Virginia, I managed to acquire some old wooden crates full of the last 6.5oz glass-bottled Cokes. The drinks were made using mountain spring water!! Talk about a taste difference!! Smooth & mellow with just the right amount of fizz & acid.

    Right now Side by side, Mex Versus US, glass bottle to glass bottle.

    Mex disolves then dissapears

    US coats then leaves a smell on the tongue.


    It's really quite a difference when consumed one right after the other.

    What I go through for science.

    By-the-by...

    We can also order cans of the Cane sugar Dr. Pepper here in California.

    I prefer out of the bottle

    Thanks to Neecerie for showing the store where I can buy it by the bottle locally.

    Pics will follow.

    Oh yeah, that's the good stuff! A friend took me to the Dr Pepper museum in Waco a few weeks ago and we had ice cream sundaes made with Dublin cane sugar Dr Pepper syrup on top!
     
  8. "Crest" toothpaste's "Original Flavor" is the flavor of... root beer. Honestly.

    Is original-flavor Pepsodent the same?!? I always thought it tasted like root beer/sasparilla, but figured I was just imagining things.
    (Yes, 3 cheers for retro toothpaste*)

    *Old radio jingle, sing along now: "You'll wonder where the yellow went/When you brush your teeth with Pepsodent!"
     
  10. I don't know about Pepsodent (I've never tried it).

    You, my dear Magneto, are the only other person I know who detects root beer flavor in old-fashioned toothpaste. We should be given a prize or something.

    And then there's Lavoris red mouthwash - an interesting taste from childhood that I seem to be craving of late. Try explaining that to someone who doesn't have a clue what you're talking about. "It was sort of cinnamon-y, but with a little tartness..."

    At the little soda shop.

    The ladies picked up the C. Howards gum and candy... The gum is... well, good for smokers breath.

    The ladies can tell you more.

    Perhaps we are what is called "super-tasters"! If you'll allow me to tie together the topics of glass bottle fan-dom and dental hygiene, I'm so mad I can't find Listerine in the glass bottle anymore. I last saw it at Rite-Aid months ago and am kicking myself for not stocking up then. I agree that plastic imparts an "off" taste to...everything.

    On my last trip to Miami, I found the violet mints on the candy shelves of many Cuban grocery stores. I had never seen them before and was intrigued enough to try a pack. They're GOOD!

    I liked the violet mints...but then I stopped drinking...(JOKE!).
    C.Howard also makes very good Lemon, Spearmint and Peppermint Mints (available in a few unlikely San Francisco locations). I can chomp through a whole lemon pack in 1 afternoon.
