does anyone know where I can buy strawberry soda's here in Nashville?? I
know it sounds stupid, but after moving here from houston, where I drank
them all the time, nashville doesn't have any, albertson's is the only
place I've seen it, and it's their brand, which I don't want a store
brand soda, I've looked at Sam's, wal-mart, etc,,,

They have sodas in Texas? I thought soda and pop only existed north of
Kentucky. Now, the real hillbilly terminology is "cold drink" pronounced
"cole drank" or you may say that youre "gonna go get a drank". Hope this
helps.

Of course they have sodas in Texas.

As in, "I soda nudder bull today, momma."

And, "Hey Bubba! Who wuz dat you soda ol truck to anyways?"

See, what you have to remember, is most of the original Texas gene pool came
from Kentucky, Tennessee and West "By Gawd," so much of the natural and
native language nuances are essentially the same.

To be sure, there are differences... as in "coldrank." Back home, it's but
one word. Same for beer... "colbare."

Economy of syllables, don't ya see?

Now, as for where one would buy strawberry soda, cole drank, coldrank,
whatever... I have no clue at all.

Good luck skoot, and welcome to Nashville. If we ever get all the
Texpatriates together in one location we're gonna have... one hell of a
problem! ;^)

Try a Piggly Wiggly...when I was working for Fleming Foods, the distribution
warehouse for them, I seem to remember delivering Faygo strawberry soda.
Faygo is not a store brand...it is actually made / bottled by the Faygo
Beverage Company. What you really need to do is ask around and find
somebody that can get you some White Rock out of Massachusets. Good
stuff...

if I was looking for a strawberry coke, then the headliner would have
been "strawberry cokes"....

have you check kroger? they might have a store brand too. i know minute
maid makes them cause i had them on a fountain drink. maybe you can contact
them/webpage and see where they distribute it. i bet coke (the company)

display numerous drinks but not all are sold here. check them out.
