I love these, so do my kids! We can still find it in some small, out of the way stores. They even still come in the long neck bottles.

My best friend from High School lives in Plano and every time I go out there we hit a convenience store so I can satisfy my craving.

Indiana is THE state for this pop, it's all over the place here, kinda like RC cola. It's even spawned a sister soda Big Blue!

Hey Jbats, Do they still come in the neat glass bottle... The one pictured on the previous page? When it comes to great soda, you HAVE To have a bottle. You guys ever check out the Dutch Mill Donuts page? That's a great one! Poe

Big Red is still very prevalent in the South. Goes fantastically with barbecue.

Easy enough to find in Ohio. I was under the impression they were going national. The only soda that tastes like red. Really good in an ice cream float. It doesn't really taste like gum, and saying so probably only confuses people who've never had it, into thinking it tastes like Big Red gum (in other words, cinnamon). They have a regular cream soda now called Big Blue. But, like many cream sodas, it mainly just tastes like really sweet sugar water.

I found this page while doing a search for the Big Red Popsicles and it appears someone else was recently thinking of them too! I miss those popsicles so much! They came in twin pops so you could share, but I was an only, score!

I still get Big Red. They sell it at the local Chinese supermarket and a local liquor store sells Big Blue.
