I love trivia and found this list very interesting (hope you do, too) - about all the different sodas, tonics, fizzy waters, pops, or whatever they're called in each state.
Some are local favorites, originated or bottled there, or even regional hand-crafted varieties that were sold exclusively in a small area. Most have been bought up by one of the bigger companies, but here they are, listed by state at http://www.thrillist.com/drink.....very-state
Here's a bigger image of the map - http://assets3.thrillist.com/v1/image/1244426
Have you ever had an Arizona Cactus Cooler, Illinois Green River, Maine Moxie (the official state soft drink), New Jersey Boylan's Soda, Washington State Jones Soda, or Wyoming Jackson Hole Snake River Sarsaparilla?
The cherry-flavored Cheerwine Soft Drink
popular in North Carolina & Virginia is another story all by itself - http://www.thrillist.com/drink.....-cheerwine
It's the oldest, continuously operated, family-owned soft drink company that was the first to bottle a carbonated cherry soda. But by the company's 100th anniversary in 2017, people in all 50 states "will be blessed with the soda's presence." Although still independently owned, the Carolina Bottling Company has partnered with Pepsi Bottling Company to make sure all the US knows about their "Born in the South. Raised in a Glass." taste.
