When did Vernor's Ginger Ale become Vernor's Ginger Soda?
I have lived here in New England for many years but I grew up in Michigan so Vernors was something that I grew up with. I have no relatives in Michigan so have not been there in many years so Vernors was kind of off my radar screen.
I was elated yesterday to see Vernors for sale locally for the first time at the Price Chopper in Marlborough, Mass. So I picked up a case of 12 cans.
One thing that shocked me though - we all know that Vernors is a "ginger ale"...however these cans do not have the words "ginger ale"...they say "Vernors, the original ginger soda".
To me this is sacrilegious...when did Vernors Ginger Ale become Vernors Ginger Soda? Is there some story behind this?
