Just a thought...
You are probably right, I didn't mean to offend anyone with my comments about my preferences as this was merely my opinion which I guess I shouldn't have given. Sometimes it is better to say nothing I guess..and that can work both ways. I have since been told that Knudsen's isn't soda or pop so I'd better not say anything further.

Does anyone recall the Coca Cola Soda Chests - the ones where the long neck sodas cooled in a pool of refrigerated water and were lined up in slots between metal tracks. After depositing your dime, you had to slide the soda along the slot to the corner mechanical dispenser gate, and you always held your breath until you had pulled your dripping wet soda free of the flapper-gate, which occasionally stuck and caused your dime to be "eaten." You'd then have to appeal to a middle aged gentleman who nearly always wore a green canvas apron and glasses. He'd usually look over the top of the glasses at you as if to judge your honesty, and then silently hand you a new dime. - Ah... it was so much better than today - and no $1.50 - $2.00 cans of soda!

It wasn't your preference that offended people, it was your insults to sugar loving soda-pop drinkers in general that offended people and non soda-pop answer. I get the feeling you are new to discussion forums ...

One of the places that had one when I was a kid was called the "Fish and Game" which is kinda like a hunting club that my grandfather belonged to. The whole place was wood, like a log cabin, and old .. very rustic, great memories there.

Yes! Cream soda, strawberry soda, and rootbeer are my top 3 favorite sodas. Dr. Brown's is good, but IBC is probably my favorite brand for cream.

If you haven't had cream soda before, you are missing out.

Cream soda float(replace rootbeer with cream soda) is also amazing!
