Question Drink from youth.

Does anyone else remember Cherry Phosphate's? We used to go to the Triangle Cafe after school and get a Cherry Phosphate and an order of fries. Oh, nothing tasted better. I don't think anyone makes them any more.
Do you remember any drink you use to enjoy that you can't get anymore?

Uncle Bob, I have to ask, what is a Lake Celery? I used to love Orange Crush, if I remember it had a lot of pulp floating in it.

You ask for memories to come forward. And they do.

When I was a child, we drank a bottled "soda pop" called Chocolate Soldier, which could be compared to today's Yahoo. It was good. I'd forgotten all about it. Thanks for helping me remember such a yummy taste.

It was a drink that came in a green bottle...sweet with a taste of Celery. That's about all I remember. Don't think they lasted very long. I can't imagine why?????
