National Carbonated Beverage With Caffeine Day

"Sailin' 'round the world in a dirty gondola/ Oh, to be back in the land of Coca-Cola!" - Bob Dylan, "When I Paint My Masterpiece"

It's National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day!

Soda. Pop. Soft drink. However you want to call it, one thing's for sure: Amur-KAH'ns can't get enough of these sugar-sweetened, bubbly, caffeinated drinks that come in a variety of flavors, including cola, root beer, ginger ale, cream, citrus, orange, grape, etc. We also have a tremendous amount of local pride in our regional favorites, too.

For example...
If you're in North Carolina, have a Cheerwine!
If you're in Kentucky, enjoy an Ale-8!
If you're in Hawaii, sip on a soda from Waialua!
If you're in Texas, slug back a Big Red!
If you're in Michigan, imbibe on Vernor's!
If you're from the southern Illinois/Missouri area, slurp a Ski!

And if you're from Maine... like I am... the only thing to celebrate today with is a big, ice cold glass of Moxie!

It's distinctively different, friends.

Whatever your choice of drink today is...

Happy National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day!
