Description
Came out, in Maryland at least, in the early 80s, around 81 I think. Was only sold in a few stores in Baltimore, at 'Penn Fruit' and their descendents. The logo was a horse's head comint through a horseshoe. Excellent flavor, with a slightly unusual 'nutty' taste to it without being as sweet as 'real' cola. I think it was made in PA but I'm not sure.

I remember buying it in Frederick County, Maryland, a little earlier than that, maybe as early as the mid-1970s. I liked the flavor better than Coca-Cola, and it was less expensive. It also had a redder color than other colas. I remember that bottle with the horseshoe/horse's head motif---wish I had one of those bottles now!

I live in Carroll County, MD and I used to get it as a young child (mid '70s) from a soda machine outside the local grocery store. I loved horses and that was the reason I wanted it. I used to call it "Horsey Cola"

I used to get this walking home from elementary school in the early 70`s. There was a Sinclair Station on the corner of Bay Ridge Rd and Arundel on the Bay Rd. run by a nice old man whose last name was Scott. He had the Briardale cola in his soda machine. That is probably the thing I miss the most besides relatives past.

I remember this cola, had nifty little caps where you could get prize money underneath with whatever was printed on the underside. Besides Capt Cheaspeake said it was good lol!

I remember this cola very well. My father bought it as a cheap alternative to Coke/Pepsi back in the mid 1970s. I really liked the taste of this cola, and wish I could find this or something similar now. I definitely remember the horse's head logo, as well as their motto: "Like Cola Was..."

I remember this cola when I was in middle school and high school. I use to talk about a mile to a small convenience store in my down that use to sell this. I remember the first time I tried it was because it was cheaper than coke or pepsi. After trying it I liked it so much I would always buy it until one day I could not find it anymore.
