I grew up on Frank's Black Cherry Wishniak. I think it's made by Canada Dry now.
Living in Atlanta, I'm practically required to drink Coke products. I was happy when they bought Barq's, because it now isn't hard to find.
But they also bought Mad River, a company whose products were similar to but better than Snapple or Nantucket Nectars. They ruined them in about six months by turning them into some overcomplicated hippy-dippy Ben-and-Jerry's thing.
