Re:Remembering the original Cott's cream soda
Cott's sodas were widely available in NH in the 1950's. I think my favorite flavor was Black Cherry. My mother forbade Coke, but permitted us to have one soda a day if we wanted. I remember the Cott's as lighter, both in sugar and in fizz. I loved them.
I have not drunk sodas for many years. They are too heavy in my stomach and give me heartburn. I thought it was me. Only a couple of weeks ago did I learn that the sugar in them had been changed to the high fructose corn syrup.
I did drink Cokes occasionally in college and rarely after that but there came a point when I couldn't stand them.
The poster above commented that Cott (It's Cott to be good) got bought by Canada Dry. I think that's right, somebody bought them. I don't know why the popular sodas vanished after that. Maybe it was the change to HFCS and the effect on price competition. (Corn is subsidized by the U.S. government).
I think if the old Cott's were around, I might occasionally drink a soda.
