The United States consumes huge quantities of soda compared to other countries. Each state may call it something different like soda pops, soft drinks or fizzes. No matter what people call it, Americans just love it. Most people may not even realize that some states actually have soft drink preferences. Perhaps this fun trivia can reveal why states have preferences. All the more reason to be glad your local display cooler is always well stocked with your favorite.
Pepsi, RC Cola and Coca-Cola have always competed for the market share. However, a couple of states in particular definitely seem to favor Coca-Cola and RC Cola. Because Georgia is the home of Coca-Cola headquarters, they have to be just a bit biased. In Tennessee, most lunches are served with RC Cola.
The folks in South Carolina know all about high humidity and warm temperatures. They quench their thirst on Blenheim Ginger Ale. Now, this couldn’t have anything to do with the fact that Blenheim has been producing several varieties of Ginger Ale in the state since 1903?
People in Kentucky and Minnesota depend on a well-stocked display cooler for icy cold citrus drinks. Soda drinkers in Kentucky are partial to Ale-8-One because it’s produced in their neck of the woods. Sun Drop citrus pop is a big hit with residents of Minnesota.
It is hard to believe that Root Beer would be such a big hit among several states. Maybe it’s that sinfully sweet flavor or the way it cools us off on a hot summer day.
A&W is preferred in California, and Indiana people are taken with Triple XXX. Lost Trail Root Beer has been producing root beer in Kansas since the early frontier days, so it’s an obvious preference. Mississippi folks crave Barq’s Root Beer.
People with strong soda preferences may not want to give up their favorites. However, it’s safe to assume they watch the display cooler for new products!
