    See in Michigan when you ask for iced tea it comes sweet and tastes nice but in Florida it came unsweetened and like you said it was vile... the only way I could get it sweet was to ask for raspberry iced tea and if they had it it was good but not alot of places knew what I was talking about.

    Come to Colorado Helly...when you ask for sweet tea here (and there are some places that have it) there are MANY places that look at you all crazy like and say "you mean like raspberry tea?"

    If you have to ask it isnt sweet tea....

    You forgot to tell them the Southern method for determining when you've added enough sugar.

    When the spoon you're using to stir the tea will stand up by itself in the middle of the pot, then you've got enough sugar! :stirthepot:

    Tom (it's the only recipe he knows!)

    Now, I'm a Diet Coke girl allllll the way, but honestly is there any better than a good ice tea?! But I'm picky, it has to be made just right and with the right amount of sugar. :D

    My parents put out the jar to make sun tea in the summer. We use to put 5 tea bags with those big glass jars and then take it in, in the evening and add a cup of sugar....then place the refrigerator until cold. Yummmmmm

    :oops: Sorry! I never really liked In-N-Out when I lived in California and hadn't been near one for twenty years until they began opening in the Valley of the Sun. Still don't love their food--occasionally enjoy their fries, but not very often--but they're one of my few sources of fountain root beer! :lol:



    Draft A&W root beer is the best! They don't do free refills, though, so it's a special treat! :D

    You'll have to start a campaign to get one in your area!

    We went from none to way too many in about five years! :rolleyes:

    Huh. I've never seen Dr. Pepper bottled by Coke.

    There is an AW Drive-In (yep, the real kind) in Clermont. Unfortunately, it's nasty (food wise) but they do excellent rootbeer floats! :yes: We only went there twice though, so maybe the food has improved.

    Lucky you! The ones in the Valley offer free refills of the fountain drinks, but not the draft root beer, which is much stronger and not as sweet. Actually, that's good for me, as I don't indulge very often! :lol:

    I used to have a dog named Skipper (half Poodle, half Spitz). He'd go nuts every time we passed the A&W! He loved the burgers there (catsup, mustard, pickles - no tomato or onion)!!! The carhops would recognize my car and were quick to bring our order, fussing over Skipper. If I didn't have enough money to stop, I'd have to take a different route around it. I loved their frosty mugs of root beer.

    just some pop info

    from www.marketingshift.com
    To all of you Dr. Pepper fans out there- I wonder if you can tell me which company owns Dr Pepper?

    Is it Pepsi, or Coke?

    If you said Coke, you'd be wrong

    If you said Pepsi, you'd also be wrong.

    Ever wonder why Dr Pepper shows up in both vending machines? The answer is simple- Dr. Pepper-Snapple Group (NYSE: DPS) makes Dr. Pepper, along with other drinks you may be familiar with, like 7UP, Mott’s, A&W, Sunkist Soda, Canada Dry, Hawaiian Punch, Schweppes, Peñafiel, Squirt, Clamato, Mr & Mrs T Mixers, Rose’s, Yoo-hoo and others.
    DPS runs 24 manufacturing centers, with more than 200 distribution centers and employs 20,000 workers across North America-which distribute approximately half of the volume. Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) , Pepsi (NYSE:pEP) and independent third-party/licensed bottlers distribute the rest.Coke makes Pibb Xtra (formerly known as Mr. Pibb), which was created in 1972 to compete with Dr. Pepper.
